SOT, Cutie's mother (Mandarin): "Cutie is nearly one year and nine months old now. She started to ride the hoverboard eight months ago. The hoverboard was supposed to be a present for her older brother. Then she got interested in it, and after two or three times with my mom holding her, she was able to ride by herself."

SOT, Cutie's mother (Mandarin): "Cutie has over 70,000 followers on the Kuaishou app now. A friend of mine posted a video of her at first, then she started to get followed and called Nezha [a protection deity in Chinese folk religion, who flies around on fire wheels]. Some people says it's great to improve her athletic performance and balance, but some say this might go against her leg development and unsafe for a one year old girl. Actually, we got her a safety helmet and she only rides it every three or four days, so we are too worried about it."

SOT, Cutie's mother (Mandarin): "I didn't intend to train Cutie to ride the hoverboard, for me it's just one of Cutie's toys. And now I am happy that riding the hoverboard improved her balance and reflexes. I am considering taking her to figure skating or roller-skating courses when she is three or four years old."

SCRIPT
At the age of a year and 9 months, Chinese toddler Long Yi Xin, aka Cutie from Guangzhou is already an internet sensation impressing more than 70,000 fans who follow her on the short video app Kuaishou riding a hoverboard like a pro.
Footage shows the toddler showing off her hovering skills while multitasking complex moves like picking up her bottle of water from the ground without losing her balance.
"She started to ride the hoverboard eight months ago. The hoverboard was supposed to be a present for her older brother. Then she got interested in it, and after two or three times with my mom holding her, she was able to ride by herself", said Cutie's mother.
She added that riding a hoverboard could inspire her to enrol her daughter in figure skating or roller-skating courses when she is three or four years old.
