In the weeks leading up to Christmas, we ask kids constantly what it is they want most in the whole wide world. Answers usually involve Barbie Dream Houses, video games, Legos, American Girl dolls ... the list goes on. But as an IKEA ad from Spain reminds us, that's not really the whole truth.
"What would you ask your parents for this Christmas?" a woman asks off-camera.
"What?" the kids all respond back, confused at first.
Then they think to themselves long and hard. They tap their pens gently in thought, pause for a bit, and write down their wishes.
The responses are all pretty touching: They want more time with their parents; they want family dinners to happen more often; and at least for one kid, he hopes to get "tickled" more. (A fair request.)
In short, they just want a bit more time, love and attention, which sure beats getting an awesome Lego set, any day of the week.
