Girl Cries After Unwrapping American Lady Doll in TikTok—Her First

TikTok viral footage shows a woman bursting into tears after opening her Christmas present.

The gift was an American Girl doll and the first doll she had ever owned. When she opened the box, she can be seen crying even more and speaking in Spanish.

The footage posted by TikTok user @ ilianmejia06 or Lilian Mejia went viral overnight. On TikTok, the video had 2.4 million views and around 13,600 comments by Saturday.

The video was shared on Twitter, which also went viral.

Twitter users @TheDivineNyla or Tima tweeted on TikTok and said, “I love seeing adults heal their inner child. She has never had a doll in her life and my heart has melted. ”

Other Twitter users joined in, saying that “little things” like a toy that you never had as a child can make such a big difference.

“It’s the little things, man, when you go through life without it and finally experience something, it’s a special moment that you never forget,” replied one user to the tweet.

“To be an adult is to compensate for our neglected childhood,” wrote another person.

Someone else on Twitter said, “That made me so sad. I know so many elders who never really had a childhood because they had to support families at a young age. I wish this señora a safe healing. ”

Other viewers wrote that they also cried while watching the video, and some simply said, “I love this video.”

On TikTok, the comments were similar, full of feel-good energy and happiness that the woman finally got her first doll.

“I’m crying. This world is cruel with some people. She never had a childhood and her emotions about getting a doll say it all,” commented a TikToker.

Another user said, “Let’s normalize item purchases to heal our inner child. Life is too short not to enjoy the things that we always wanted but couldn’t have. ”

TikTok user @ ilianmejia06 did not respond to the Daily Dot’s request for comment.
