A quick game to all. Can you name a minimum of 10 types of vehicles you know? Oh well, I see that some of you can only identify less than 6 types.
Even an average adult struggles to name various types of transportation, yet a young phenom has named over a hundred types of transportation and even established an astonishing record for it.
On 2nd September, Yaashan Thiyagu, a 2-year-old toddler achieved a mind-blowing feat by earning a spot in the Malaysia Book of Records (MBOR) for perfectly identifying the Most Number of Transportations, 163 types, in just 9 minutes and 37 seconds.
At his age, remembering this many various transportations is undoubtedly a challenging task. (Sensational feat kiddo!)
Taking into her own social media account, Yaashan’s mother, Shalu has shared the wonderful news with everyone.
Noting that children have much shorter attention spans than adults and are easily distracted, the proud mother shared “As a mother, I was impressed with Yaashan because of his focus on identifying all the means of transportation listed in the slideshow,”
Speaking about how they discovered Yaashan’s talent, Shalu explained “We noticed Yaashan’s talent when he was 2, where he was able to remember each of the words that we thought him within a seconds.”
“Day by day we keep adding more vocabulary for him to learn, identify and remember too. At one point, he successfully finished 5 boxes of flashcards that contains around 200 over cards, and surprisingly he was able to identify all of them accurately,”
However, thisshowed a particular interest in vehicles related flashcards. It prompted the parents to make their kid delve into the world of transportation.
She further claimed that although he appears to be playing and enjoying himself with this activity, he has actually been absorbing important information the entire time.
“Congratulations, to my handsome charm YAASHAN THIYAGU for this very impressive feat!” the entrepreneur mother wrapped.
Hats off to Yaashan who has set an incredible record. Keep it up lil’one!
