Apple tops the Christmas wish lists of kids surveyed by Nielsen, which released its annual take on which gadgets people want to receive this year.
Among kids 6 to 12, some 44 percent would like to receive an iPad, up from 31 percent in 2010.
Apple’s iPod Touch and iPhone are the next most-wished-for items, followed by a computer, non-Apple Web tablet and Nintendo 3DS. Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect sensor is next, followed by Nintendo DS and a TV.
I hope the kids are flexible. That’s a pretty pricey wish list for kids in a country where nearly one out of 10 people is unemployed.
Apple’s tablet is also the most-wished for item among American consumers 13 and older, with 24 percent wishing for one. Computers and e-readers are equally wished for, with 18 percent of respondents hoping for them, followed by TV sets and non-Apple tablets.
