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. ;) Report

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. Report

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. Report

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! Report
