Anything for the kids!

Thank you for contacting our company regarding our exclusive line of futuristic toys and games. I can certainly understand how welfare checks alone would not provide enough hard-earned cash to be able to purchase luxury items such as high-tech gadgets and computer games.

Please be assured that we have carefully read and considered your letter outlining the unfair day-to-day responsibilities you are required to perform as a parent of six children from three separate marriages. As much as we are saddened to hear of the disappointment your children face during the holidays, having been promised that Santa would deliver the voice-activated computerized robots they saw while watching television--and yes, I imagine the robots do look especially impressive on your big-screen TV--we regret that we are unable to grant requests for free products.

There are many great toys out on the market. The classics, such as board games and sporting goods, continue to provide entertainment the whole family can enjoy. Also, you may be able to find quality second-hand toys offered at reduced prices by checking the classified section (where the employment ads are printed) of your local paper.

On behalf of the company, I wish your children a warm and loving family holiday.
