Mall Santas Share Strangest Things Kids Have Asked For

If you’ve spent much time around kids, you know they’re great at saying things that catch you off-guard. Teachers and parents get to experience it most often, but mall Santas get to hear them at their most candid. With hundreds of kids a day telling them their deepest wishes, you know they hear some interesting things from little ones.

A recentReddit threadasked “Mall Santas of Reddit, what is the weirdest thing a kid asked for Christmas?” and mall Santas, elves, Mrs. Clauses, and parents were happy to share:

  • “My favorite was this four to five-year-old girl that told me she wanted ‘one of those loud horns’ and she wants to use it to wake up her baby brother when he naps in the daytime so he ‘knows what it’s like.’”
  • “Yesterday the big sister asked for a pet mouse, the little sister asked for a snake.”
  • “After waiting two hours in line my daughter asked Santa for a hot dog.”
  • “My uncle was a Santa and he told me that one year a kid asked for a coffee maker because he wanted to start his own Starbucks coffee stand instead of a lemonade stand. Apparently business was not very good as a lemonade stand but he noticed a lot of adults drink coffee, so he’d make coffee. That kid is probably a millionaire now.”
  • “Reindeer eggs so he could start his own franchise.”
  • “A kid asked for a whistle that she could blow at night to wake her mom up and scare her when she was sleeping. I said ‘No, that would put you on the Naughty list, let your mom sleep you little gremlin.’ Mom laughed.”
  • “I overheard a kid asking Santa for a real life Pokémon, not a plushie or a Pokémon themed toy, a living Pokémon. I’m sure the kid sat there for about five minutes making sure Santa fully understood the request.”
  • “Some kid asked me to make a kid with his mom so he would become related to Santa.”
