Can you spot the mistake on kids’ spelling rug in under five seconds?

Social media users have been left baffled after spotting a mistake on a kids’ spelling rug.

An image of the colourful alphabet-themed rug was shared to Reddit, but it wasn’t long before it went viral – for all the wrong reasons.

The carpet shows one letter that is clearly wrong – but can you spot it in under five seconds?

The rug is emblazoned with the 26 letters of the alphabet, along with fun pictures to represent each letter from A-Z, The Sun reports.

But while it starts off just as you’d expect – with an apple for A and a bear for B – people were left stumped when they arrived at the letter N.

Alongside the image, the original poster penned: “Kids’ area of a hospital lobby. N is for?”

Rather than having a ‘nose’ to symbolise the letter as you may expect, it instead had an image of a chick in an egg.

Social media users wracked their brains, with some coming up with suggestions for what the link between the two may be.

“I’m going with newborn,” wrote one.

“None of your business” a second quipped.

“Nuggets,” a third commented.

Meanwhile, a fourth guessed: “Newly hatched.”

After a quick think, the answer becomes clearer, with the cracked shell likely representing a nest or nesting.
