The toys kids are requesting most this year are things with names like Furby Boom, Teksta Robotic puppy, and LeapPad Ultra.  I don't even know what to make of that.

 

 

A website called MyHeritage wanted to figure out the ten most wanted Christmas toys from 100 years ago . . . so they dug through actual kids' letters to Santa that newspapers published in 1913.

 

 

And the top 10 they came up with shows kids in 1913 had MUCH simpler requests.  Check it out . . .

 

 

1.  Candy.

 

2.  Nuts.

 

3.  A rocking horse.

 

4.  Dolls.

 

5.  Mittens or gloves.

 

6.  A toy train.

 

7.  Oranges.

 

8.  Books.

 

9.  Handkerchiefs.

 

10.  Ice Skates. 

 

 

And the top 10 THIS year are: 

 

 

1.  The Furby Boom.

 

2.  Teksta Robotic Puppy.

 

3.  The LeapPad Ultra.

 

4.  The Flying Fairy.

 

5.  Big Hugs Elmo.

 

6.  Barbie Dream House.

 

7.  Giggly Monkey.

 

8.  Nerf Gun.

 

9.  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
