Kids don’t want toys for Christmas. The new Duracell Toy Report shows that kids are veering away from action figures, Nerf guns, and Barbie Dolls, and are veering toward video games and cell phones.
According to Slash Gear, the Duracell Toy Report surveyed 2,138 kids and parents, and found that 39% of children wanted Apple products. Children as young as 5-years-0ld wanted an Apple product. The report breaks it down like this:
Seventeen percent of 5-8 year olds, 50% of 9-12 year olds, and 66% of 13-16 year olds all wanted Apple products.
But perhaps the strangest, or most disturbing part of the Duracell Toy Report, was that 3 out of 5 parents wanted to get their kids something that “keep their youngsters quiet throughout the holidays.”
Here are the top ten tech toys as requested by kids, according to the Duracell Toy Report.
1) iPhone 4 (14%)
2) iPod touch (13%)
3) iPad (12%)
4) Kinect for Xbox (6%)
5) Zhu Zhu Pet Hamsters / Kung Zhu Hamsters (5%)
6) Flip Video Camera (4%)
7) Toy Story 3 Jet Pack Buzz Lightyear (4%)
8) PlayStation Move (4%)
9) LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4 Video Game (3%)
10) Barbie Video Girl (3%)
