Moms Plan Surprise Reunion for Kids Who Were Best Friend Neighbors Before Cross-City Move

Exclusive to Happily

A six-year-old cried tears of joy when she had a surprise reunion with her best friend who had spent nearly half her life living across the street from her – adorably after just five weeks apart.


Youngsters Fifi and Juju became close friends when Fifi moved into the house directly opposite Juju’s home.

The following year, the pair were placed in the same class together, but when Fifi’s family welcomed a new daughter, they made the decision to move away from their Toronto, Ontario, home.

The move was tough for both girls, their moms said, as although Fifi had only moved to a different part of the city, she would now be placed in a different school and couldn’t visit her best friend regularly.

As the weeks passed, the girls missed each other, opting to video chat daily and play online games together.

But realizing that digital connections were not the same as spending in-person time together and that weeks felt like a lifetime for the young pair, their moms decided to plan a surprise reunion.


With both Fifi and Juju unaware of what was about to happen, they arrived in a parking lot with their moms.

As soon as they got out of their respective vehicles and looked each other straight in the eye, the emotion of the moment got too much for the youngsters.

Juju immediately started crying tears of joy before heading in to give her friend an emotional hug after five weeks apart.


The video immediately resonated with viewers online, where it quickly went viral and received more than six million views.

Their moms said: “The girls hadn’t seen each other since the move and missed each other dearly.

“We decided a surprise ice cream date was in order, so we planned it without the girls knowing.

“The story of Fifi and Juju teaches us that being apart for only a few weeks could seem like a lifetime for young children.
