The toddler party: Watch what happens when these twins sneak out of bed

When was the last time you got out of bed in the middle of the night to build a pillow fort and just have a good old chat with your best friend? If you’ve ever wondered why your little ones are so tired in the morning, this footage of two-year-old Andrew and Ryan Balkin could explain a thing or two.


From the moment their parents turn off the lights, the twins quickly escape from their cots and follow each other round the room. Building a pile of pillows, practising their baby gymnastics and sitting next to each other on the sofa to catch up on the day’s events, despite being busted twice, the playtime games continue till the early hours.


Recorded by parents Jonathan and Susana Balkin, who were wondering why their boys seemed tired in the morning, this sped up footage shows an entire night’s worth of fun and games. Sweet dreams Balkin family, here’s some more advice on getting those boys to get some much needed shut eye!
