We all know that kids say the funniest and craziest things sometimes; their young brains haven't been conditioned to follow our narrow rules of speech just yet so they quite often just name things as their creative brains see fit.

And you know what? A vast majority of the time, kids' made-up names for things actually make more sense, are much funnier and more descriptive than the originals could ever wish to be. Ice cubes? Nah, that'll be water bricks, please!

In the list below, you'll get a new perspective on things that we have been taught not to notice. Only the pure, unsullied minds of kids could come up with these poetic observations! Scroll down below to check them out for yourself, and feel free to add your own in the comments!

A friend's 5 yr old saw a rhino and called it a "Battle Unicorn". Can we let 5 yr olds christen new species please?

I'm not saying that my daughter is overly dramatic.
I'm just reminding you that she calls tears "wet drops of sad."

When my daughter was a toddler she pointed to the back of her knee and told me she had a bug bite on her leg pit.😂 Then my son,(8 yrs younger), as a toddler learning how to scrub up asked "Do I scrub my leg pits too?" I think it's funny that they both called it the same thing.

When I was at school, with 7 yo, i was studying sea stuff for an exam. Our word for cave in "ensenada" and I started saying "ensaimada" that is a pastry-candy. Mother didnt correct me. The teacher corrected me in the oral exam and everyone laught, was pretty cruel cause I really tought I was doing it right. I got really mad with my mother for not correcting me.
