DON'T try this at home -- your toddler might not appreciate it.

Fearless 15-month-old Hally Weiss joined her acrobat father Yuri yesterday as he prepares for the Street Performance Championships in Cork and Dublin.

The 38-year-old Israeli/Hungarian acrobat and his wife, fellow acrobat Noah (34), are among 16 finalists who will be competing at the annual event at Cork's Fitzgerald Park this weekend and Dublin's Merrion Square from July 19 to 22.

But he warns other parents not to try the same stunt at home. "She's the daughter of two acrobats and she has no fear," he said.

"She's always standing on something, on the table or the chair but it's not something we trained her to do," he said.
