We should all be like this. It should not take a lot to make us happy!

Happy is Happy. He was truly thankful for his gift. How simple but precious was his reaction!

I think the gift givers meant it as a teasing moment for the child but he showed them! What a great clip. That's the attitude to have for all the "small" gifts in our lives. ;)

He's definitely not materialistic. It must be his favorite food and that's a good thing. A good lesson in getting hyped about the simple things. He is such a cutie and obviously for real in his enthusiasm for the banana.

I have the opposite reaction. The kid seems happy enough, but to me, hearing the adults laughing so much says, "Haha, stupid kid." It just rubs me the wrong way.

There is nothing more beautiful than a happy and grateful child.

This kid makes me smile. It is about the simple things in life. This is a grateful child through and through.

A large empty box is one of the best gift a child can receive. I also spent 30 minutes stacking rocks with my grandkids. I got a stack of 7 high, then was pleased when they kept trying until they got 8 high. Don't spend money, spend time with them.

Yeah, the banana was great, but I got something else out of this video. Listen to his family, all laughing and having fun. It sounds like they have a close bond.
Treasure those wonderful moments with your family!
