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!
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. The top 10 they came up with shows kids in 1913 had much simpler requests, check it out.
Top Requests from 1913:
3. A rocking horse
5. Mittens or gloves
6. A toy train
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
