A telescope and a watch..
A batman music player
And who is Santa Claus?
He's a very old man and very fat.
Why is he so fat?
He eats a lot of sweets and treats.
Why does Santa Claus have such a big tummy?
Because he eats all the cookies. He doesn't eat anything else.

Umm, 14, I think.
Five, so just a year older than you?
