Fans love {{Shipping}}. Fans love [[CheerfulChild cute kids]]. And sometimes [[FanPreferredCouple the most popular couple in the show]] will end up being composed of two of the cute kids. This results in the occasionally {{squick}}y practice of {{Shipping}} two characters who are barely old enough to be in a relationship (but in fairness this isn't as {{squick}}y [[PrecociousCrush as pairing them off with adults]]). A Toy Ship does not automatically qualify as {{squick}} since usually people only support innocent childhood crushes between the two; most writers and fanfic authors let these characters age a bit before making moves beyond the "smooching on the playground" sort.

For InUniverse examples of kid couples, see PuppyLove.
