Finalist in Parenting

About That Happy Family

With over 100M loops, That Happy Family took Vine by storm, showing that when it comes to kids, it doesn’t all have to be sappy and sentimental. In fact, their (seamlessly doctored) videos usually look outright dangerous, like a kid pushing her brother down a flight of stairs in a Tupperware bin, or “doing the dishes” by hurling dirty glasses at the dishwasher. With the closing of their previous platform, @thathappyfamily took their hilarious highwire acts (did we mention they’re not real? Don’t sue the parents!) to Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook in 2016. The videos are often funny, frightening, and outrageous—but always remember, kids (and parents), don’t try this at home!

That Happy Family's best work on social
