Ten Most Wanted Christmas Toys This Year Compared To 1913

A website dug through old kids' letters to Santa published in newspapers 100 years ago, to find out what kinds of toys kids requested in 1913. 

Naturally, things were much simpler back then, including the toys children requested to be under their tree on Christmas morning.

Top 10 Toys From 1913:

1. Candy
2. Nuts
3. A rocking horse
4. Dolls
5. Mittens or gloves
6. A toy train
7. Oranges
8. Books
9. Handkerchiefs
10. Ice skates

Now, take a look at the most requested items this year"

1. The Furby Boom
2. Teksta Robotic Puppy
3. The LeapPad Ultra
4. The Flying Fairy
5. Big Hugs Elmo
6. Barbie Dream House
7. Giggly Monkey
8. Nerf Gun
9. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
10. Legos

Surprisingly, some of the things kids are asking for in 2013 are the same toys asked for 20 or even 30 years ago - the Barbie Dream House, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Nerf Gun, and Legos. But, what exactly is a Furby Boom? And a Teksta Robotic Puppy? At least you don't have to take either of them out for walks, feed them, or clean up after them...we think.
