Kid picked candy from stranger's basket

Meanwhile, earlier reported that a mother shared a video of her baby, @baby_starr_, putting up a scene at a supermarket where they visited to get some provisions.

While queuing at the counter, the kid went straight to a stranger's basket and picked a candy with much confidence.
