Frozen tops children’s most-wanted chart

Published on: 15th December 2014

The Royal Mail has revealed this year’s top ten most wanted presents, according to children’s Frozen300letters to Santa.

The findings come from analysis of many of the hundreds of thousands of letters sent to Santa, and reveal what children really want for Christmas this year.  Unlike many toy surveys in the run up to Christmas, the Royal Mail findings come directly from the children themselves.

The results show that the most popular toy is Frozen merchandise, overtaking one of the most traditional, Lego to the top spot this year. Tablets have made a new entry at number six with One Direction merchandise falling from second place last year to eighth place in this year’s survey.

The top ten list revealed that traditional gifts are again proving popular this year: dolls remain a firm favourite with Barbie, Snow Glow Elsa and Monster High featured, while enduring classics such as Lego and Scooters remain high on the list. Peppa Pig also continues to be sought after, moving from tenth place to seventh place this year.

The top ten most requested toys are:

1.         Frozen merchandise

2.         Lego

3.         Bike

4.         Scooter

5.         Barbie and accessories

6.         Tablet

7.         Peppa Pig

8.         One Direction merchandise

9.         Snow Glow Elsa

10.       Monster High dolls
