Royal Mail has revealed this year’s top ten most wanted presents, according to children in their special letters to Santa.
Father Christmas’ team of Royal Mail elves, who have managed Santa’s mailbag for 56 years, have carried out the most authoritative survey of children’s wishes this Christmas.
Unlike most toy surveys in the run-up to Christmas, Royal Mail’s findings come directly from the children themselves.
Top of the list this year are Games Consoles – with perennial favourite Lego taking the number two spot for the second year in a row. Lego has appeared in the top three since 2013.
Bikes ride into third place – they dropped off the list completely in 2018, despite having taken second place in 2017.
Books leap into fourth place despite not featuring on 2017 and 2018 lists, while Scooters drop from third in 2018 down to fifth in 2019. The Animal Alley Giant Unicorn gallops into sixth place for the first time ever, while mobile phones drop from sixth in 2018 to seventh in 2019.
Three new entries complete the Top 10, with baby dolls and clothes as the eighth and ninth most popular requests of Christmas 2019 and LOL Dolls in the tenth spot – also appearing for the first time.
The findings come from Santa’s helpers’ analysis of many of the thousands of letters sent to Santa, and reveal what children REALLY want for Christmas this year.
The top ten most requested toys of 2019 are:
- Games Console
- Animal Alley Giant Unicorn
- Mobile phone
- Baby doll
- LOL Dolls
“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 and thousands of special letters he receives from boys and girls across the UK. His special team of elves at Royal Mail enjoy taking a peek at what children are asking for, and helping Santa reply to these special letters!”
Axelle Galera, Royal Mail Chief Elf, who has the important task of ensuring children’s letters reach Reindeerland at the North Pole
