Kids crave Apple gear for Christmas

Written by

iPad, iPod and iPhone top gift wish list

Kids aged 6 to 12 seem a bit more tech savvy than one might expect.

A new Nielsen survey claims that a whopping 44 percent of kids on Santa’s lap want an iPad. About 30 percent prefer the iPod touch and 27 will cry their eyes out for a new iPhone. So the survey basically seems to prove that all those who refer to Apple as a “toy maker” have been right all along.

Apple toys are trailed shared by new computers, non-Apple tablets and the Nintendo 3DS, all at 25 percent. Kinect ranks seventh with 23 percent, Nintendo DS series consoles are eight with 22 percent, while 20 percent of all kids “just” want a new TV.

The days of playing ball in the street and begging folks for a new bike are long gone. However, by the time today’s kids graduate they will have to pay all the debt incurred by our generation, so really the joke’s on them.

What the hell is a 6 year old going to do with an iPhone or an iPod? he's 6, who's he going to phone? and I'm sure 6 year olds aren't interested in music

How can you call them "tech savvy" if they want Apple gear? Or are you referring to the non-Apple percentage? Would also help if you posted how and where that survey was conducted.

*Back in the early 20th century* 'Oh, kids these days are so ungrateful. Playing with sticks in the forest isn't good enough for them any more! Now they want action figurines! What is the world coming to?!'

That, my friends, is progress.
