With just over five weeks to go until Christmas, Royal Mail has revealed this year’s top ten most wanted presents, according to children in their special letters to Santa. Father Christmas’s team of Royal Mail elves, who have managed Santa’s mailbag for 53 years, have carried out the most authoritative survey of children’s wishes this Christmas.
Unlike most toy surveys in the run up to Christmas, the Royal Mail findings come directly from the children themselves. Traditional toys hold the top three spots for the second year in a row. The results show that the most popular toy is Lego , which has retained its top spot from last year. It has also remained in the top three since 2013. Scooters have made a new entry as the second most popular Christmas wish in 2016. 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.

Don’t forget that Santa needs to know the full name and address of children to reply so please include this in the letter. Christmas is a very busy time of year and Santa will respond to as many letters as possible, in between getting the sleigh ready for the long journey on Christmas Eve
