“Dear Santa Claus,
We are three brothers, and sometimes we don’t like sharing our toys, but we have a really good time playing football together. The things is, the ball is broken and we would like a new one. Oscar, as he is older, also wants a video game for his PS4, and Héctor, who is the youngest, a racing car. And I would also like a case with toy DIY tools.
I would also like people to donate toys at school. Afterwards they can be shared out amongst the kids who you didn’t have time to visit. That’s what I’m going to do, that way I have space for the new toys. Don’t forget our bags of sweets and nice warm pyjamas, we have grown and our old ones are too small.
I promise that this year I will do my homework every day and I will behave myself.
PS.: I will leave a little nougat and milk in the sitting room.”
Children get very excited about Christmas and their toys, and we make sure that the presents are educational and good quality. The presents must be adequate for their age and learning capacity. You must be careful with small parts for children who are younger than 3 years old, and also with toys which use batteries. Toys must have the EC seal, which certifies that the manufacturer (which must be marked) complies with all the EU safety rules. Videogames must also abide by PEGI standards. Remember also to keep the receipt in case you need to return the present or make a complaint, and read the instructions following the given recommendations.
Buy your presents in trustworthy shops, which guarantee professionalism and quality (just as you do with insurance companies). And remember that you still have all your rights as a consumer during the sales period.
