When you read this post, you’re probably going to immediately check your pockets. For me, I found a lighter, keys, and a smartphone. And I thought, “darn, we adults sure are boring at times.” And if I asked another adult to show me what they have inside theirs, I’m not sure I’d really want to know.

Luckily, kids aren’t anything like that, and the contents of their pockets are as magical and colorful as childhood itself. Don’t believe me? Here’s some proof, and if that won’t suffice, here’s a post from before that says just the same. CashNetUSA has offered a unique look inside children’s pockets from various parts of the world, from countries like India and the UK to Argentina, the US, and Ukraine.

In these six uniquely adorable examples, we can see that each kid appreciates and values different things. And yet we can see a commonality in all of them, no matter where they come from. They like to pick up whatever catches their eye, or they carry something they hold very dearly, or just some good, old-fashioned candy. It’s always refreshing to get a glimpse at how innocently and cutely children see the world. And it reflects even in the contents they hold inside their pockets.

What 5-yo Nadya keeps in her pockets (Ukraine)

“The things she carries reflect her internal world and imagination.”

Her dad tells us that Nadya herself decides what goes in her pockets, just as long as it’s not slime, which is Nadya’s favorite thing but forbidden by her parents. The contents of her pockets can often change throughout the day, especially after walks; tissues and gloves can often magically turn into shiny gold things. Today she had plenty of spending money and a cuddly bunny. What more could she need?

“He still has a good stash of candy leftover from Trick-or-Treat night.”

William‘s world revolves around candy. Skittles, gummy bears, you name it, candy is his favorite meal of the day. And because you never know when you’re going to get hungry, it is essential to have it with you at all times. His other obsessions are Harry Potter and Lego, so a Lego figure of Harry Potter is a must-have. William’s parents are no longer surprised when they find Skittles with all the color licked off.

What 4-yo Brigid keeps in her pockets (USA)

“Brigid loves things that are beautiful or shiny!”

Like William, Brigid loves candy, almost as much as she loves her husky-pitbull mix Juno, who she would like to fit in her pocket if she could. Today she played pirates, so her pockets were full of the bounty she collected during her adventures on the high seas. The things she loves to collect are all things shiny and beautiful, which definitely reflects her personality. Her Dad found baking soda in Brigid‘s pocket once, so he was relieved to find only solid items this time.

“Experience has taught me never to be surprised by what Wyatt manages to stash in his pockets.”

Wyatt doesn’t quite manage to fit a full-size T-Rex in his pockets, but he tells us he wishes he could. There is a miniature dinosaur in there, though, along with a trusty stick and other tiny items. It all makes sense to Wyatt; he tells us, “the orange car is good. I like the stone.“ Who can argue with that? These items join the vast collection of objects his dad has found in Wyatt‘s pockets, including his missing house keys.

What 5-yo Bilal keeps in his pockets (India)

“My son is obsessed with his cars.”

He certainly is. They say the best things in life are free: sticks, stones, shells, and chestnuts. Well, Bilal will tell you none of those will buy you a car. Your father’s credit card will, though, so maybe that‘s why he had it in his pocket. Bilal has only one thing on his brain: and if he could fit anything in his pocket, it would be, you guessed it, a real-life car. He tells us that in a perfect world, he would spend all of his time on cars.

What 4-yo Dante keeps in his pockets? (Argentina)

“He is always looking for treasures to collect and include in his adventures.”

Dante likes to change it up daily. He loves collecting treasures, both things he finds, and things that are gifted to him. Each day is dedicated to this quest. He is very friendly and likes to keep presents for his close friends. And if he could fit anything in his pocket, it would be a magic Santa Claus reindeer. What would he do with a magic flying Santa Claus reindeer? Take it for a walk, of course.
