There's no rhyme or reason for these gifts
You can peruse all of the catalogs and websites to figure out what the hottest toys are this year, but you may be searching in vain. Kids don’t always want pricey toys. If you sit down and talk with them or get a friendly neighborhood Santa to do it, you may realize that you little tot wants nothing more than a cheap common household item that they can call their own. These adults couldn’t believe what these kids really wanted under the Christmas tree.
