TikTok is best known for its dancing-filled videos, but at House Beautiful, our favorite TikTok content is anything house-related, and that includes dollhouses—which is how we stumbled upon what might be our favorite, delightfully bizarre TikTok yet. A 22-year-old college student named Tara Meagher has gone viral for chronicling the adventures of her two frogs (named Snoop Frog and Martha) posing inside various rooms in her mom’s dollhouse. The video has since garnered over 2 million views and 492,000 likes. We imagine that the only other frog living in a house this nice is probably Kermit the Frog.

In the viral video, which is set to Dolly Parton’s song “9 To 5,” each shot shows off a different room in the dollhouse, with the first scene depicting the frog on a floral bedspread that’s complemented by a grand wooden headboard and pastel striped wallpaper. Next, he is nonchalantly sitting on a staircase railing in the home’s entry hall, across from a bright-colored Victorian-inspired sofa and front doors with stained glass windows. We even see Meagher’s pet frog in a clawfoot (not to be confused with webbed foot) bathtub, situated near stacks of baby pink towels that sit on a set of light blue shelves that perfectly match the pink and blue floral wallpaper. In the final shot, a fedora-wearing frog is on the front steps of this impressive dollhouse, right next to a succulent plant that makes for a nice hint of landscaping.

We can gather that this frog knows good design when he sees it, but we have to ask: If we kiss one of these frogs, can we live in this dollhouse too? Between the fact that every room in this house already has its own charming wallpaper (the installation process can be taxing, after all) and the great mix of antique pieces (a gold metal bed frame and matching mirror, plus a high tank toilet), we’re ready to move in. Meagher says that she and her mom found “the dollhouse at a yard sale a few years ago and have been working together to decorate it since then.”

You can see more of Meagher’s frogs on Instagram, where she has an account dedicated entirely to them and their whereabouts, including their love of dollhouse decor, from grand pianos to antique sofas, which offers great interior design inspiration all the while leaving us wondering why these frogs have a better house than we do.
