The Kardashians Love Working With Cartoons
Kim Kardashian’s kids aren’t the only ones who love animated characters. Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott’s two-year-old daughter Stormi loves the movie Trolls. Last Christmas, she and ex-boyfriend Travis Scott surprised Stormi with a real life character from Trolls.
Stormi met a life-sized Poppy – the pink-haired character voiced by Anna Kendrick – as part of her Christmas gift. Stormi and Jenner were watching the movie right before the surprise, and Jenner said in a TikTok video, “We watch this four times a day.” Jenner shared various Instagram stories and TikTok videos of Stormi living her best life.
The two watched the Trolls movie together and danced to a few scenes together, as Stormi kept exclaiming, “It’s Poppy! It’s Poppy!” The Trolls character even gave her a few presents, and Jenner spoke into the camera, “It’s the best day of her life.”
