‘LPBW’: Matt Roloff Revealed He Went ‘All In’ On His Christmas Gift to Jackson Roloff
Fans are anxiously awaiting the return of Little People, Big World in 2020. Until then, we’re watching Matt and Amy Roloff showcase their beloved family on Instagram — and fans absolutely adore the Roloff grandkids.
Zach and Tori Roloff welcomed their newborn baby girl, Lilah Ray, into the world on Nov. 24. And Jeremy and Audrey Roloff are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their newborn who’s due in January.
The new babies aside, fans are in love with Jackson Roloff, Zach and Tori’s 2-year-old son. And Jackson gets plenty of love and attention from Matt and Amy. Matt even shared the amazing Christmas gift he bought Jackson — and he mentioned he really went above and beyond this year. Here’s what he got.
Matt Roloff loves surprising his grandson, Jackson Roloff
Matt and Amy Roloff adore all the kids and grandkids in the Roloff family, of course — but it seems they have a special place in their hearts for Jackson. Jackson has achondroplasia, which is the same type of dwarfism as Zach and Amy. While Zach and Tori treat Jackson like they would any other child, he experiences certain limitations due to his stature.
Tori often forgets that Jackson is “different” than other kids his age, but it hit her when she took him to a local festival over summer 2019. “Jackson wanted so bad to ride the airplanes that went up and down but the height requirement wouldn’t allow him to (which I totally understand!)” she wrote on Instagram. “It was really the first time I was hit in the face with the fact my child is different.”
After that incident, Matt wanted to make sure Jackson could have the same experiences that other kids his age have. Back in August, Matt announced he was making an airplane structure just for Jackson because he couldn’t ride the airplanes at the festival. “It’s a stationary play structure for kids who love airplanes regardless of there heights,” Matt explained in another post.
Matt and Caryn Chandler had an early Christmas with the Roloffs
Not only does Matt adore his grandchildren, but his girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, loves them too. Chandler frequently posts photos of herself hanging out with Jackson, Lilah, and Audrey and Jeremy’s daughter, Ember. And while Matt and Chandler won’t be in Oregon for the holidays, they got the chance to celebrate early.
Matt posted a photo of himself, Chandler, Zach, Tori, Jackson, and Lilah with the caption, “@carynchandler1 is amazing! She figured out how to hold 2 back to back Early Christmas events with the grandkids so everyone got their own individual attention while still celebrating and sharing as a United family.”
He then thanked his kids and in-laws for celebrating the season a little early so he and Chandler could get away from the cold and back to Surprise, Arizona, where they have another home.
Matt gave Jackson Roloff a fantastic gift
Since Matt and Chandler celebrated early, fans get a sneak peek at what he gave the grandkids. Matt gave Jackson a toy Jeep that he can ride around in. Considering how much Jackson loves riding around in Matt’s trailer on the farm, there’s no doubt he loves his gift.
Matt captioned the post, “@toriroloff snapped this photo of Jackson lovin’ his Christmas present from grandpa and Chacha. It’s a big hit! I definitely asked permission from his mom and dad before spoiling him with his own jeep. They gave the nod…. So grandpa went all in.”
Matt’s fans adored the photo and gift, too.
“I tremendously enjoy seeing your love for your beautiful grandchildren, I remember the feeling and there is nothing like it,” a fan wrote.
“YOU DID GREAT GRANDPA!!! Jackson’s expression says it ALL,” another wrote.
We’re excited to see what else the Roloff grandkids got for Christmas this year!
