Every year, children in the UK have the opportunity to write directly to Father Christmas with their festive wishes. In the name of research, the Royal Mail
takes a sneaky peek inside these letters to see what the most sought after gifts are. In 2016, Lego is in the top spot, still managing to stay relevant in a list that also includes mobile phones
, Nerf guns and light sabres
. With Christmas spending in the UK
expected to surpass that of many other European countries, there may well be a lot of happy children, and a lot of lego, come the 25th of December!
