Ah, the milk crate challenge — a light-hearted viral trend where users simply climb up and down a staircase-shaped pile of milk crates. Sounds easy right? It's not. The instability of the crates means that it's incredibly difficult to balance on, hence the large number of milk crate-based fail videos circulating the internet. 

The TikTok challenge is actually super hard, and a countless number of videos have since been banned in fear that participants could cause themselves some serious damage. But fear not, milk crate challenge fans, we have found a far safer version of the risky challenge for you. Fancy making your own TikToks? Make sure you check out our list of the best TikTok lights.
