It seems that these days all kids want for Christmas is anything from Apple.
Almost a quarter of children have put an Apple product at the top of their Christmas list, according to a survey by Duracell.
The iPhone 4 topped kids’ wish lists, according to the survey of over 2,000 kids, reports The Telegraph.
It’s not just teenagers who want Apple gadgets. 17% of 5-8-year-olds and half of 9-12-year-olds said they wanted an Apple product for Christmas. Not surprisingly, 66% of 13-16-year-olds put an Apple gadget at the top of their list. The survey didn’t include toddlers, but if it did, I’m guessing they’d beg for iPods and iPads too.
After the iPhone 4, the top two must have presents were an iPod Touch and the iPad. Amazingly, just two of the top ten products weren’t tech gadgets: Zhu Zhu Pet Hamsters, and the Jet Pack Buzz Lightyear. Following is the full list.
The Top Ten Toys for Christmas:
1. iPhone 4
2. iPod touch
4. Kinect for Xbox
5. Zhu Zhu Pet Hamsters / Kung Zhu Hamsters
6. Flip Video Camera
7. Toy Story 3 Jet Pack Buzz Lightyear
8. PlayStation Move
9. LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4 Video Game
10. Barbie Video Girl
It’s only natural that teenagers would want the same gadgets that their parents have, but frankly, I find it sad that so many little kids aspire to grow up so fast. Wouldn’t they rather play with a doll or Lego than stare at a little screen? Apparently not.
What do your kids want for Christmas or Hanukkah? It’s not even Halloween yet, but if they’re like my kids, they’re already drawing up their wish list.
