Most children put a new baby brother or sister at the top of their Christmas wish list, closely followed by a request for a real-life reindeer and even asking for a 'dad', according to a new UK survey.
A study of 2,000 British parents found requesting a pet horse was the third most popular choice among kids, with a "car" making an entry at number four.
Despite their material requests, the tenth most popular Christmas wish on the list was a "Dad", The Telegraph reported.
The survey, of consumers at Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City, found children aged three to 12 years also wanted a dog, chocolate and a stick of rock.
Traditional hopes for a white Christmas were represented by a wish for "snow" in ninth place, with sensible youngsters also requesting a "house".
Of the top 50 festive requests, 17 related to pets and animals, with some imaginative children hoping for a donkey, chicken and elephant.
Cellphones and tablets also appeared on the list, with some quirky children asking for the Moon, a time machine, a pond cover and beetroot.
