Toddlers who want to get their way can may noisily make their decrees in very public places. And the toy aisle at Target is a popular spot for spurring wish lists. The whole Internet's buzzing about how one birthday girl's wish was granted in the most unexpected way.
Megan Shufflebarger was shopping at a Target store in Indiana with her children when her daughter Kinley, about to turn 3, spotted a doll she wanted and began loudly demanding it. Other shoppers overheard.
One such shopper was Tario Fuller II, a student and football player at Purdue University, who couldn't help but notice Kinley. Suddenly, Fuller walked away from the toy aisle--and came back moments later with a big surprise: that same doll, in a shopping bag, which he had purchased for Kinley. He handed the unexpected gift to the toddler and wished her a very happy birthday.

"I was speechless initially, and had to ask him after he left the aisle if he would come back for a photo," Shufflebarger told ABC News. "I didn't realize until we got to the car that I didn't even know his name."
Mom posted the photo of Tario and Kinley at Target on her Facebook page, and within hours was able to track him down.
"I hope our children remember this for years to come and remember what it means to truly 'pay it forward,'" Shufflebarger added.
We love how one small act meant an unforgettable birthday for a young girl, and a wonderful lesson for all of us.
