Neil Patrick Harris Xmas Tweet

Neil Patrick Harris has revealed he spent hours preparing a Christmas present for his son, only to have him shun the toy in favour of a household broom.

The How I Met Your Mother star posted a picture of his two-year-old son Gideon Scott, sweeping the floor of their LA home while wearing a Santa suit.

Neil told his Twitter fans: 'Up until 2am constructing a table with wooden trains for Gideon and all he wants to do is play with a broom'.
