Hot Christmas Toy for 2010 - The iPhone 4?

I can see the eye rolls now. iPhones? TOY? WHAT?

Well, my dear friends over at Fast Company (don’t you love that, I mean they did link to my blog ONCE with one word, RIDICULE – and I am name dropping them like we are BFF’s). Anyways. Fast Company just posted How Steve Jobs Stole Christmas–Apple Products Top of Every Kid’s Wish List

Here are the deets, though I do have to say that I would totally expect U.S. kids to be way more spoiled rotten than U.K. kids. This survey was taken in the U.K.

Out of 2,000 children that Duracell polled, the TOP toy on their wishlist was (drumroll please) the iPhone 4.

The top three must-haves for kids aged between 5 and 16 were: iPhone 4, an iPod Touch and the iPad.

Here is the break down of what percentage in each age range had an Apple product topping their wish list

  • 17% of 5 to 8 year old children wanted something Apple
  • 50% of 9 to 12 year old children wanted something Apple
  • 66% of 13 to 16 year old children wanted something Apple

Crazy. Apple FTW!

I am slowly making the shift to using Apple producst. It’s a costly shift, but Apple is definitely my preferred platform.

Side note, similar but different:

Apples, kids, macs

Apple is on the rise. The iPhone is changing how we work, live and more. It’s also to see the Apple MacBook rise in popularity. 

Interesting read on how Apple is taking over at College campuses with Macs. Check it out.

Interesting – I have not seen ‘Appley’ products mentioned in any top toys lists that I’ve come across! Maybe pester power is not that powerful, and children are not getting what they want!
