A playful baby kangaroo has been captured looking like an ‘excited toddler’ after he discovered a child’s swing set in an Australian backyard.

The adorable little joey was filmed by Jeannie Seymour in the backyard of her friend’s house in Muswellbrook, New South Wales, Australia, last week [19 JUNE].

The 54-year-old professional cleaner said she felt ‘incredibly lucky’ to have been able to witness such a hilarious scene right in her friend’s backyard and knew she had to film it.

The happy marsupial can be seen frantically hopping around and excitedly attempting to jump up onto the swing for a turn – but just cannot quite make it.

Jeannie added that the funny little kangaroo reminded of her of an excited toddler who was having the time of their lives in a playground.

She said: “I was at my friends house, and just happened to be looking out the window and saw this little kangaroo playing on the swings.

“It was so funny. I ran and got my phone so I could film it and show my family and friends.

“I was really excited to witness it. I couldn’t stop laughing, he was so cute.

“He was there for a few minutes. He was trying to jump up on it, but I don’t think he ever would have made it because of his big belly.

“Just watching him try to swing and pop his arms up over it was a crack up. It was so cool.

“I came back later in the day to have a look outside, and he was gone. It was just a swing swaying in the breeze.

“But I’m sure he’ll be back to visit someday.”

The video has since gone viral, racking up thousands of likes, comments and shares – and even getting over 100,000 views on Facebook.
