The news comes after people in Australia recently complained about a store named Typo who are selling baubles that parents feel could ruin Christmas for their kids.

One father was shocked during a recent shopping trip when his child picked up an elf decoration – which was holding a sign that reads: "Santa's not real."

Taking to Facebook, he fumed: "Hey mums and dads, just a warning as I was caught out today.

"The store Typo/cotton on have horrible Christmas ornaments for sale that my child was able to read and ask me ‘is Santa real?'"

"I tried to complain but didn’t get anywhere. I’d like to encourage as many people as possible to email/call/live chat and complain and get these things taken off the shelves."
