Santa’s customer base is constantly growing with the population (1 billion in 1804 and 7 billion in 2011). Assuming that 30 percent of the population is under 14 years of age and each child receives on average 3 gifts then Santa’s staff is producing approximately 6.3 million complex toys per year with simple machines and manual labor.
