Babies will waddle against each other in Wildwood, New Jersey in what's bound to be the cutest contest of the whole summer.

Anything involving babies and animals provides the most adorable entertainment.

Well, brace yourself for cuteness overload! Wildwood, New Jersey will bring on the smiles when the shore town hosts a Baby Waddling Contest this month.


When you were little did you have a toy called a Kiddalong? It was a little wind-up baby in a diaper that would waddle as it crawled. I loved to race them!

Wildwood, NJ Looking for Fastest Crawling Babies to Compete in Event

Perhaps that toy was the inspiration behind the Wildwoods Loves Waddlers Baby Waddle Contest.


Is your baby the fastest waddler in the neighborhood? Don't miss your chance to enter him or her into the competition coming up in Wildwood.

Wildwood, New Jersey is currently looking to register speed-crawlers for their contest taking place on Tuesday, July 30th. The first 40 babies to get in on the action will receive a special gift.

There are two categories: Waddlers 15 months and younger and waddlers 16-24 months old.

Participating babies and toddlers will be put in the middle of a 45-foot-diameter circle on the grass in front of Wildwoods Convention Center (along Ocean Ave.) while parents call to them to crawl or waddle to the edge. The fastest from each category reportedly earns four free tickets to attend Morey’s Amusement Piers and Water Parks.
