Not many children go to sleep dreaming about receiving an avocado.
But in this video, a little boy in the US showed unbridled delight in unwrapping the dark green salad ingredient.
His Father, Jeff Simmons, explained that he gave the gift to his son as part of a lesson on gratitude.
He was teaching his son that even if you don't particularly like a gift you have to pretend to be pleased with it.
The toddler excitedly pulls the wrapping paper off and then turns to the camera, beaming, and says 'Thank you' in an adorable voice.
Since being posted on the social networking site, the video has been watched more than 44million times, has received 262,000 likes and 10,000 comments.
