A MUM was left heartbroken when she went downstairs one morning to discover her children had opened all the presents ‘Santa’ had left them under the tree. 

In a video that has since gone viral on social media, the woman can be heard gasping in shock as she walks into the living room.

Once inside, the reality dawns on her as she takes in the view of the Christmas tree and countless unwrapped presents around it.

Her young son and daughter are busy tearing into the paper and seeing what’s inside each gift.

As she exclaims “oh my God”, her little boy turns to her and excitedly says: “Look mummy, look what I’ve got!

“I’ve got Hot Wheels City.”
