This week, we have been reading and analyzing the UCLA research report about American kids and their abundance of toys. The researchers went into 32 American homes and obtained the numbers behind the stuff. We interpreted the data, we identified main reasons the researchers listed for this problem, and we looked at other countries and their consumption habits. After processing all this information, we concluded that all this stuff does not necessarily make a person happier.

So, after evaluating all the interesting facts we learned, which one was the most interesting to you and why?
How do you compare yourself to the average family in this study?
