Man, when I was a kid, I really wanted a Sega Genesis. Then Sonic 2 (it came with the original) Then Mortal Kombat... Mortal Kombat II... Catching on to the trend? Well it's 2018 now and a new gift-giving survey asked 2,000 parents what their kids have been asking for this year. The top ten categories aren't quite as dominated by tech stuff as we expected only six of them are tech-related. Here's the list from DigtalHub:

1.  Computer games.

2.  Legos.

3.  Clothes.  Especially for older kids, in middle school or high school.

4.  Books.

5.  A new phone.

6.  Video game consoles.

7.  Board games.

8.  iPads and tablets.

9.  A new laptop.

10.  DVDs and digital movies.

 

A few classic Christmas gifts just missed the top 10 include a new bike made the list at #11, Nerf toys at #12, action figures at #14 and scooters at #18.

At last it's nice to see that kids still want to play outside. Oh wait, no they don't. NOTHING on the top 10 list is an outdoor toy/game. Then again, either was my Genesis so I guess there's that.
