When my oldest was 7 she aske for soap? She is now 17 and ever since I can remember her getting me a gift for Christmas it has been soap.

My 12 yr old wants a life. I must be doing a good job as a Mom.

The reviews on the link are too funny! My DD has been asking for a horse for several years now. I should just get her this mask.. It looks an awful lot like the chestnut horse she rides for her lessons. Somehow I don't think she would find it as humorous as the rest of the family would. I can just picture her wearing it to the stable one day and then getting back on Amazon to add her interesting (crazy) review.

My daughter asked for a light up Reindeer Pig Christmas lawn ornament last year. When I was trying to convince her that it was, perhaps, a bit tacky and didn't go with the rest of our decor, she proclaimed that "Mom just doesn't 'get' Christmas." She was 8 at the time. My mother heard that story and ran right out and bought one for her for Christmas. Mom called my sister from the store where she purchased the pig to make sure she was getting the right thing because "it was the tackiest, ugliest thing she'd ever seen." My sister said, yes, the sounds exactly right and asked if she were going to buy it. My mom said "yup...already in the cart.". It was very cute when she opened it...it was her #1 favorite gift last year. She was so excited.

And now I have a lone Reindeer pig hanging out in my yard.

American Pavillion in Epcot had it! Thanks for the idea. It's my DD's (10) favorite candy! My friend will be in Disney, and I'll get her to pick it up. (Otherwise, I'd have to order online I imagine.)



My daughter asked for a vacuum when she was six or seven. I bought her a real one and a duster too. She helped clean up for a couple of months.

My DS asked for French Fries when he was 2! When he was 3 he asked for "pooping books". You should have seen Santa's face when he heard that! He meant he wanted new books to read while he was on the potty!
He is 5 now and asked for a cell phone. Ha! I hope Legos will do!

When my daughter was little she asked for a green teddy bear. It doesn't sound very odd but it was really hard to find. I had pretty much given up when I came across a bunch at the grocery store of all places. The grocery store! Huge, super soft, velvety, dark green teddy bears. It was perfect. She loved that bear.

A wig. Because they read "Pig in a Wig" at school. I had already bought Madagascar 3 with the rainbow wig for him when he announced that!

That is hilarious!!!!

Those reviews are hilarious! I'm going to forward them to my teenage sons. I have a feeling one of them will be asking for this now.


Back to the question. Last year DS14 asked for a cloak and a japanese puzzle box. Guess he was plotting some secret spy thing.

When DD was 3 she asked for a "garbage frog."
Luckily she found a picture in a catalog to show us, since it was really just a small green garbage can with eyes - so searching for a frog would have gotten us nowhere!

Not my dd, but one of her friends: Asked for a Swiffer for Christmas.

For many years, this girl was always at our house. So often, that we treated her like one of our own. One day she was misbehaving and misbehaving girls do housework in our home. I assigned her to Swiffer our upstairs (we have all hardwood). Well, she thought Swiffering was the bestest fun ever!

Every time she came over, she'd run to the closet to get the Swiffer. So for Christmas, she asked for one of her own. Her parents thought it was stupid and didn't get it for her. So dd gave it to her as her present.

The parents were miffed that the Swiffer was their dd's favorite gift that year. LOL

This reminds me of the Christmas when my 2-year-old nephew asked for:
"Power tools. With danger."

He meant real tools, not cheesy preschool plastic ones!

Aww, now he's all grown up and still gets teased about wanting his gifts with danger.

The strangest thing my DS26 ever asked for was a hammer and a box of rocks. He was about 8 and obsessed with geodes. He spent many a happy hour whacking rocks on our driveway. We also gave him some scrap lumber and some nails. He built all kinds of ladders and platforms for his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Probably the best ever present he ever got was when he was about 9. DH got a box and filled it with wire, batteries, little motors, and flashlight bulbs. He helped him design a circuit board and that stuff entertained DS for hours on end. In fact, he loved it so much he made his science fair project about which batteries last the longers *Duracell
