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.


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.
