This would seem to be an obvious reaction, to give a little kid a ridiculous Christmas Present, but one of the kids may surprise you.

A couple purposely gave each of the kids a very unusual Christmas gift and video taped their reaction, to see If they would be grateful. So many factors come in to play here, especially the age of the kids. I actually am surprised the one kid who really did not like the present did not even react that badly.

I hate to say it, but I can think of a few kids that would have thrown a fit at first and then laughed about it trying to make us reveal that it was a joke all along. I personally think you can use many different approaches to instill in kids to be grateful, but to each it's own.
