26 Weird Things Kids Have Asked Mall Santas For

The people of Reddit asked mall Santas to share their biggest WTF moments.

1. “A remote control buffalo”


Some kid’s dreams are very specific.

2. “A new liver”

20th Century Fox

The boy who asked for this was healthy, but wanted a liver to “play with and stuff.”

3. “To destroy all Backstreet Boys CDs”

Jive Records

Santa: “Tell me why?”

4. “A unicorn that poops rainbows”

To be fair, if you’re going to ask for a mythical creature you might as well ask for one that poops rainbows.

5. “Plutonium”

Universal Pictures

Was this kid building a time machine in the backyard?

6. “A ‘penis’ book”

United Feature Syndicate

This request came from a little guy who had trouble pronouncing “Peanuts.”

7. “A fax machine”

Granted, the kid asked for this in 1989, but it’s still weird.

8. “Lasagna”

Film Roman/Paws, Inc.

Actually, I’m totally onboard with this one.

9. “Nicole Scherzinger”

This kid added that, in lieu of an octopus or shark, he’d settle for a giant squid.

11. “To change my name to Batman”

Warner Bros.

This kid’s teacher after Christmas: “Yes, Batman, you may go to the bathroom.”

12. “An 8-Track Player”

The cool kids listen to vinyl, but the really cool kids listen to 8-track. (Not really.)

Um, okay.

14. “A live penguin and polar bear”

This kid told Santa she was planning on keeping them in her backyard.

This request came from a little boy of 8 or 9 whose mom wouldn’t buy him a box. Mooom!!!!

16. “A flying pony”


Whatever happened to just asking for a regular pony?

17. “A penis”

This came from a five-year-old girl who wanted to be able to pee standing up.

18. “A lifetime supply of peanut butter so my dog will lick my face forever”

This kid should probably play less with the dog, and more with other kids.

19. “A live cobra”


Santa: “I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking sleigh!”

20. “A Nordstrom’s gift card”


This one came from a very sophisticated 7-year-old.

Well, when one elf really loves another elf…

22. “Wots of fucks”

Don’t eat the cookies at this house, Santa.

25. “Boobs like mommy”

Santa probably can’t come through on this one this year, but if you just wait…
