Kids request Santa for new sibling, pet or 'dad' for Christmas
Its Christmas time and most people may assume that children will ask Santa for an extensive list of toys, games and treats.

But a survey has revealed that kids asked for a new sibling, pet or a 'dad' instead.

They also request for a real-life reindeer, the study of 2,000 British parents found.

A "pet horse" was the third most popular choice, followed by a "car".

The tenth most popular Christmas wish on the list was a "Dad," the Telegraph reported.

The survey, of consumers at Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City, found children aged three to 12 years also wanted a dog, chocolate and a stick of rock.

Traditional hopes for a white Christmas were represented by a wish for "snow" in ninth place, with sensible youngsters also requesting a "house".

Of the top 50 festive requests, 17 are related to pets and animals, with some children hoping for a donkey, chicken and elephant.

iPhones and iPads also made it to the list. Some children even request for the moon, a time machine and a pond cover.

One child asked for Eva Longoria and another wanted Harry Styles from One Direction.

A request for a "mum" reached number 23 on the list.
