Reporter: But, then dan heard from a customer who noticed something. Telling him there was now another wrench with hat appeared to be a similar mechanism on the shelf at sears. But this one made in china and sold under the sears brand craftsman. Reporter: In fact, side by side listen to the old ad -- it grips on all six sides. Reporter: Now for their new wrench -- the six locking jaws. Reporter: Or this part of the pitch before. It's 14 wrenches in one. Reporter: And now the new craftsman wrench.

Those gifts will likely be making their way droos the country with the help of fedex and ups, but we wondered what about santa? What would it take to deliver one gift for each child around the world? Check out these numbers. The delivery companies say it would take 46 international distribution centers to make the magic happen and that slay hauling 760 million pounds of presents, delivering 9,000 gifts a second, it would take 300 planes to carry that much.
