Think back to when you were a kid, what was the top thing on your Christmas list? I'm pretty sure that between the ages of 6 and 12, mine varied, but always included the latest book in whatever series I happened to be reading (Berenstein Bears, Babysitter's Club, etc.), some form of Nintendo game (which I would inevitably have to share with my brothers), and clothes. I never asked for anything extravagant, because, frankly, I knew I wouldn't get it.
Turns out that kids these days don't think the same way.
