Do you know what’s on your child’s Christmas list this year? We asked kids across the country what they really want for Christmas this year, and they answered in droves! So, if you’re looking for inspiration, check out our top Christmas gifts for kids, as chosen by kids to find them something extra special.
There was a huge range of toys requested, from musical instruments to electronic toys, but some brands were mentioned again and again by kids of all ages. Frozen toys show no signs of waning popularity, with dolls, games and dressing up clothes from the smash hit film featuring on many Christmas lists. Another household name, LEGO toys were also requested by lots of the kids we spoke to, and plenty of children have their fingers crossed for a new Xbox console and games.
