1. Isaac - Age 4

His favorite thing: His Dora doll.

Why do you like it so much? Because H (his big sister) gave her to me!

Where did you get it? I dunno… The Dora shop?

How much did it cost? 20 million dollars I think.

2. Winter - Age 6

Pilar Clark / Via

Her favorite thing: Shopkins

Why do you like them? Because they are so cute and small and have my favorite colors and they have tiny, tiny, tiny faces. And I love, love, love them!

Where did you get them? At ToysRUs. My mommy and daddy give me one every Friday because I earn them.

How much did they cost: I don't know because I can't count money yet. Maybe $100.

3. Tyler - Age 12

Melanie Sheridan

His favorite thing: A hockey stick specifically designed for Detroit Red Wings player #55 Niklas Kronwall.

Why is it special? Tyler plays hockey too and is a huge Red Wings fan! Niklas is one of his favorite players.

Where did he get it? The stick was given to him by Niklas' nephew, Felix Kronwall. Felix lived with us for about six months so he could play hockey locally. Felix scored a goal with this stick and it's his signature you see on the blade.

What did it cost? Tyler says it's priceless.


4. William - Age 8

Pilar Clark / Via

His favorite thing: KRE-O Transformers Grimstone

Why do you like it? It's my very first KRE-O Transformers pack and it's four robots that you can combine into one bot. It's really cool and I play with it all the time.

Where did you get it? My mom and dad got it for me at ToysRUs because I had a really good report card.

How much did it cost? I remember what the price was and it's $11.00.

5. Kaia - Age 8

Kaia's Mom

Her favorite thing: Her dogs.

Why do you love them? They make me feel better when I am sad. They cuddle up on me. They lick me sometimes, which is how they kiss. They are so much more than possessions though, they're family.

Where did you get them? I got one from Santa and one from my parents. Both were Christmas presents. Jasper's from the North Pole and Louis is from Florida. But we tell them they're brothers. Shh.

How much did they cost?: Santa doesn't pay for things, so Jasper was free. He was probably raised by elves and reindeer. Louis was probably $875, but he's totally worth it.

6. Dylan - Age 5

Carol Jones / Via

His favorite thing: A LEGO Mixel.

Why he likes it? He likes it because "he made it himself" (he followed the directions and everything).

How much did it cost? It cost $1100, but is worth $1600.


12. Rosie - Age 3
