Parents who don’t have talkative children are always on the lookout for the UK Royal Mail’s annual list of top 10 children’s demands to Santa.
Yes, the Royal Mail gets informed by the elves at the North Pole in Santa’s workshop what the favorite toys are of the little boys and girls who have all written letters to Father Christmas revealing what they want to open on Christmas day.
And as the list comes directly from the Christmas workshop and no toy company has interfered with it, parents reading this can be sure that anything on this list is what the children in your life really want.
Given that anyone who has seen the Arnold Schwarzenegger comedy “Jingle All the Way” knows how quickly wanted Christmas toys sell out will know, we urge you all to check this list.
As every year, among the most-wanted presents children requested are Lego sets (made even more popular by the multiple Lego themed movies, bikes and video games consoles).
Mobile phones are also a repeated presence amongst the most popular items.
2017 Most wanted Christmas items:
3. Video Games Console
6. Mobile Phone
7. Paw Patrol Sea Patroller
9. Big Surprise Ball
10. Nerf Guns
Lego claims the top spot for the second year in a row.
In a reaction, the spokesman for the Royal Mail, Mr Alex McConnell stated: “Royal Mail plays a special part at Christmas.”
“We are proud that for over 50 years Santa has allowed us to help manage the thousands of special letters he receives from boys and girls across the UK.”
