Awww, the kids on “Stranger Things” are actually adorable BFFs in real life

We’re well aware of the importance of friends, whether they’re your lifelong bestie or someone you’ve known for only a few weeks. And, of course, there’s the endless debate on whether or not you can have more than one best friend (hint: you can).

Well, we are thrilled to see that the kids on Stranger Things are actually BFFs in real life. (Reminds us of Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, cast mates and besties.) If the kids’ Instagram accounts are any hint, the actors behind Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Lucas, and Will have a blast together:

Now this is a cast party we’d love to attend.

Will and Eleven go to the movies together, proving alternate dimensions do exist.

Best squad reunion ever.

This photo could be the cover of a book on friendship.

We’re glad we’re not the only friends who bring their cells to a hangout.

Something tells us this Jenga game isn’t your normal Jenga game amongst friends…

Their excitement is contagious!

Aww, adorable besties.

We can’t help but echo their smiles.

Not all of us are lucky enough to have photographs of the first time we met our future besties.

Wait… he’s not pure evil? The set of Stranger Things proves friendship can blossom in the strangest places.

The friends take a break from shooting to visit this awesome Atlantic aquarium.

Nothing feels better than a hug amongst friends!
