This is the adorable moment a toddler’s tiny mind is blown after hearing her own echo for the very first time.


While tottering around Aylesford Priory, Kent, little Bonnie Lou Ashdown cannot hide her amazement when she realises the noise bouncing back off the walls is from her own voice.

Initially chewing on a dummy, the twenty-two-month-old pulls the pacifier from her mouth as soon as she realises she can continue the enchanting repeated sounds.

Wide-eyed and mouth agape, Bonnie Lou continues shouting louder and louder as she runs around the chapel altar testing out whether the echo works everywhere.

Grandad Jobe, from Chatham, Kent, said: “The look on her face was price when Bonnie Lou realised the sound was her voice.

“It was a real innocence of youth type moment.

“She stepped up on the altar like it was a stage ready for her grand performance.

“As soon as she figured out what was going on, she pointed her finger upwards to point to the sound.

“Truly it was a moment we as grandparents will cherish forever.”
