It’s that time of year again. Santa will soon be stealthily sneaking down chimneys across the globe, bringing everyone presents galore. But the presents we pop-culture-savvy adults might want aren’t necessarily the presents that pop-culture-savvy kiddos might be interested in. At least, that’s the lesson we learn every year when we ask Onion Inc. kids to come in and tear through some of our favorite Gift Guide selections. As you’ll see in the video, the results range from befuddlement to misplaced excitement, all spiced up by a relative interest in wrapping paper. It’s all very cute, and don’t worry: We placated the kids’ Santa frenzy with Toys R Us gift cards after they finished shooting. We’re not grinches.
