This week's top trends were nothing short of bizarre, from the now viral watermelon kids of China to parties dedicating to celebrating that time of the month.

The watermelon kids, as they're now known, were toddlers who were suffering from the heat during the summer. To remedy the situation, they were lovingly put into watermelon-made outfits to keep them cool and looking adorable. Undeniably odd but incredibly cute, it's no wonder these photos performed so well.

In terms of other offbeat phenomena that made an impression on viewers this week, parties dedicated to celebrating menstruation caught the eyes of many. Certainly a different and personal reason to celebrate, this was by far one of the strangest party ideas we've ever covered.
