孩子们圣诞清单上最奇怪的礼物

Christmas is less than two months away, and little ones are already planning their letters to Santa.

距离圣诞节还有不到两个月了,小孩子们已开始为写给圣诞老人的信打草稿。

But one survey has revealed the weirdest2 items to turn up on Christmas lists, and they include mythical3 monsters and mega-selling popstars.

Conducted by GAME, the study also reveals a significant break from festive4 tradition when it comes to writing wish lists.

One in three, 29%, children now use technology such as iPads or mobile phones instead of the traditional pen and paper, while a further one in five (19%) will rely on parents to take note of all the things they point at during TV adverts5 and during trips to the shops.

With more than three million lists likely to be drafted, parents are gearing up for a flurry of requests including many that even Santa would struggle to fulfil.

As part of the study, parents were asked to reveal some of the weird1 and wonderful items that made it onto their child's Christmas lists.

These are the top 10 most obscure items: a real dragon egg, pet unicorn6, iPhone 7, glasses for a cat, that daddy's job will be ok, a live walrus7, Taylor Swift, flight to the moon, Ferrari, and the power of invisibility.
