What the kids are wishing for this Christmas

‘I really want a new Elsa dress as mine is too small now. And a pink yo-yo. And a puzzle that is not too hard with princesses on it.’

‘I want a really soft Minnie Mouse that I can have in my bed. And a pet hamster like my big cousin has.’

‘I want Father Christmas to bring me a magic wand that does real magic with real fairy dust in it. And a pair of clippy-cloppy shoes like mummy has.’
