Bikes are the second most popular Christmas wish this year, followed by Play-Doh in third position.
Father Christmas’s team of Royal Mail elves, who have managed Santa’s mailbag for over 50 years, have carried out the most authoritative survey of children’s wishes this Christmas.
The results show that the most popular toy is Lego including Lego Star Wars action figures and toys, which has regained its top spot after being overtaken by Frozen merchandise last year. There were a number of new entries this year with Games Consoles and iPhones entering the list at number four and nine respectively.
Top ten most requested toys for 2015:

3 - Play-Doh
4 - Games Consoles
5 - Nerf Guns
6 - Board Games
7 - DVDs
8 - PAW Patrol

Just outside the top ten this year and very popular are costumes of superheroes, princesses and Disney characters.
Royal Mail’s Chief Elf in charge of Santa’s mailbag, Alex McConnell said: “We are very honoured that Father Christmas has allowed us to take a peek at what children are asking for this year. We get to see what they really want for Christmas. All the elves at Royal Mail enjoy reading the heart-warming letters and the festive cheer these letters bring.”
Royal Mail have said that Santa is happy to receive cards and letters, but as he is very busy, they urge children to write to him no later than December 6 2015.
They also remind kids that they need to include their full name and address in their letter, so Santa can send them a reply.
To ensure Santa receives your letter on time, make sure you write to him using the correct address on a stamped envelope.
