The 45th Annual Christmas Wish season is in full swing and we need your help to ensure that every child in the tri-state gets a visit from Santa. These are the most asked-for items that kids are obsessing over this season. Now is the best time to shop to get the best deals in town!

It's been a very difficult year for many of our neighbors and that's why we want to help bring the Christmas spirit into your home. There are so many ways that you can help in the mission. We have over 900 wish letters in the system (11/25/2021), so we have a pretty good idea of what items are the hottest of the season. If you're out shopping today or tomorrow, keep an eye out for sales on these items that children are asking for the most this holiday season.

Below are the Top 30 toys that have been requested so far. Because we know what we've purchased throughout the year, I've added a note to let you know which items that we are super low on, and need the most. Last year we handed out over 30,000 toys, hundreds of winter jackets, gloves/mittens, along with hundreds of diapers, to put it all in perspective.

Please note where it says Extra High Alert, which means we only have a few in stock and we have a hard time finding them on the store shelves. There are 281 baby dolls requested already by little girls, for example, and all we have on our shelves are little dolls.

Note where it says High Alert, which means that we have quite a few on our shelves in the Christmas Wish office, but not nearly enough to fill the demand, which is why we need more.

Everything else on the list has many requests, but because of demand, we could use more of them. Cocomelon, Pop-its, Roblox, and Gaming Headphones are new to the list this season. We have 90 children asking for Cocomelon and only have 5 in stock. We have 80 children asking for Pop-its and have 10 in stock. Roblox has requests from 52 children and we have 6 in stock. Between Gaming Headphones and regular headphones, we have 68 requests and have 11 in stock to fill Wish Letters.

Thank you in advance for helping these children have the best Christmas of their lives!
