The opening shot show a Christmas tree laden with presents, before a toddler goes off to explore. The present-opening is taking place in Epsom, and the child is delighted with her spoils, including a toy pushchair, carry cot, scarf and cot. Less successful is a rubber frog that refuses to jump. Indulgent parents and grandparents occasionally lend a hand.
