The 10 Most Wanted Christmas Toys This Year Compared To 100 Years Ago
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. But wait til you see what kids were asking for 100 years ago!

3. A rocking horse
5. Mittens or gloves
