“Why don’t Chinese kids believe in Santa?"/"Because they make the toys.”

A Christmas riddle is:

Q: Why don’t Chinese kids believe in Santa?
A: Because they make the toys.


That is, the toys aren’t made by elves in the North Pole—they’re made in China. The riddle has been cited in print since at least 2010.
