Garage sales can be a fun experience for kids and an educational one.
When the customers come rolling in your children may make some new neighborhood friends, earn some pocket money and understand how hard work can lead to rewards.
But for Los Angeles twins Allen and Brandon Alexander, they got the added bonus of making their first sale to a Hollywood movie star.
As they stood at the side of the road the twins prepared themselves to part with their much-loved huge gray bear called AG.
Their proud dad filmed his twin boys enjoying their first lesson in entrepreneurship outside their home in Toluca Lake, California.
They jumped up and down with their “For Sale” sign next to their giant 8-foot-5-inch-tall toy bear, which had a price tag of $50.
But little did they know the home their much-loved bear was about to go to.
Tomb Raider star and voice of Master Tigress in Kung Fu Panda Angelina Jolie stopped by with her then 10-year-old daughter Shiloh to check out Big Bear.
Doubled the asking price
The friendly actress and director shook hands with everyone, introduced herself and her daughter and chatted with the twin boys, who clearly had no idea just how special this customer was.
Not only did she hand over the asking price of $50 but then doubled it so each boy received $50. Then she helped get the giant bear into the back of her white SUV.
Their proud dad captured the special moment on camera and in the video below you can hear Angelina chatting casually to one of the boys.
“Tell me a story, tell me your favorite animal,” she asked.
“You guys are so cool. This is Shiloh. I’m Angie. Nice to meet you,” the Oscar-winning actress said to the group that had formed around them.
Watch this awesome moment in the clip below. What lucky boys!
Showing her generous and sweet nature, this Hollywood movie star made a family’s day and I’m so glad it was captured on camera for everyone to see.
I hope these boys have realized what a special occasion this was in their lives and a story they might be telling for years to come.
Please share this story if it made you smile.
