If you’re a parent with a smartphone, chances are you’re very familiar with "Baby Shark," the catchy kids' tune. And if your kids know the song by heart (because who doesn't?), then they will have a whale of a time dancing it out with the new baby shark book.
The song is a total earworm — one listen is all it takes to have you singing it to yourself while folding laundry or walking through grocery store aisles for weeks afterward (We need milk, do, do, do, do, do, do). And since kids get fixated on things, and their adorable little faces are so hard to say no to, you probably find yourself listening and dancing to it on repeat at home, in the car, while giving the kids a bath — the song is basically a great white that’s chasing us all everywhere we go.
Admittedly, the tune and its simple dance moves are tons of fun, which is why many parents find themselves leaning into the trend.
The song is popping up everywhere — at band performances, gymnastics classes, even CPR training. It’s the must-have birthday party theme for anyone in diapers, and families around the world are having fun recording themselves performing the song as part of the #babysharkchallenge that’s sweeping social media.
