Special thank you to Museum of Illusions for hosting us at this year’s winner photo shoot! Museum of Illusions Orlando, located at ICON Park, has more exhibits and illusions than any other edutainment destination in Central Florida!

1st Place: Franky

Age: 3

Parent Names: Derick Agustin & Vanesa Agustin 

What are some of your Cutest Toddler’s favorite things? Dressing up in superhero costumes, dinosaurs and sharks, arts and crafts and dancing.

What is your Cutest Toddler’s most precious moment? When he became a big brother to Baby Ricky Bicky in June 2020.

What is your favorite story to tell about your Cutest Toddler? When asked what he wanted to be when he grows up by his preschool teacher at Serendipity Learning Center, he very solemnly replied “I want to be a soldier like my Daddy to save people from the bad guys.” (We are a proud military family; my husband is an Air Force Veteran).

What is your Cutest Toddler’s favorite treat? Watermelon popsicles! 

What has been the best part of this contest experience for you and your toddler? The gracious way it brought together our entire family, colleagues and friends across the world for a fun week filled with entertainment, laughs and an amicable competition. Special thanks to the Claveles and Maristas for your continued love and unwavering support. Furthermore, we feel humbled, extremely grateful and forever thankful to AdventHealth Rehab Pediatrics in Winter Park for guiding Franky Koko to health with a speech therapy program tailored to his needs. 

2nd Place: Abigail

Age: 3

Parent Names: Andrea and Adam Poston


What are some of your Cutest Toddler’s favorite things? Abby is a social butterfly and loves striking up conversations with everyone she meets. Her other favorite things are playing doctor, her stuffed cat(Catty), and being with her family.


What is your Cutest Toddler’s most precious moment? When Abigail met her baby sister Annabelle for the first time and got to hold her. She has been taking care of her ever since, changing her diapers, making her smile and occasionally sharing her favorite toys. Abby says her sister is her best friend.


What is your favorite story to tell about your Cutest Toddler? Abigail had been wanting a Peppa Pig house for awhile so we made her a potty chart. If she filled all the squares with stickers from going to the potty, she would get the house as a reward. The day she put the last sticker on we all cheered and Abby elated “I pooped for Peppa!”


What is your Cutest Toddler’s favorite treat? Whipped cream, yogurt, moon pies from her “Big Daddy,” and rainbow sprinkles on everything.

What has been the best part of this contest experience for you and your toddler?

Abigail says her favorite part of winning was taking pictures at the photo shoot with all the pumpkins. I must agree watching her light up and having so much fun while getting her pictures was a memory we will always cherish.  

3rd Place: Quinn

Age: 3 years old

Parents: Matt and Rachel DiSalvatore

What are some of your Cutest Toddler’s favorite things? Quinn loves bubbles, swimming, the beach, theme parks, and giving cuddles and kisses.

What is your Cutest Toddler’s most precious moment? Quinn came into our room to sleep with us and so I asked him if anything was wrong, he said, “No, I just like you.”  

What is your favorite story to tell about your Cutest Toddler? Quinn is a brave boy! He’s already had six stitches and he is not afraid of climbing trees, jumping on the trampoline and doing flips! (Pray for his protection. Haha.) 

What is your Cutest Toddler’s favorite treat? Lollipops and chocolate milk!

What has been the best part of this contest experience for you and your toddler?

The best part was the outpouring of love and support we received from our family and friends. Quinn had a bunch of people rooting for him and we are definitely feeling the love. One of our friends even bought him a “you’re #1!” balloon and a Chick-Fil-A gift card. Contests can be frivolous, but the relationships that we have with our friends and family are everything. We are forever thankful to everyone who voted for Quinn! You are in our hearts.
