What Kiwi kids want for Christmas…

Animal toys are expected to dominate Kiwi kids’ lists for Santa this Christmas season, according to online marketplace Trade Me 

Half of the products making the top of the list this year are furry friends, including Gotta Go Flamingo, Fifi Flossing Sloth and Big Wags Dog. 

“We always see animal toys on Kiwi kid’s wishlists, and this year is no different,” said Millie Silvester, communication manager at Trade Me. 

Little Live Pets’ pooping flamingo toy, ‘Gotta Go Flamingo’, ranked first on the list of sought-after Kids’ Christmas Toys this year.

“This little guy is the perfect companion for any toddler learning how to use the toilet,” said Silvester. “The interactive, bright pink Flamingo talks, sings, dances, eats, and poops. All you have to do is feed him his magic food and wait.”

Following the ‘Gotta Go Flamingo’ is ‘Fifi the Flossing Sloth’, a powered dancing robotic toy from Zuru Pet Alive. The third ranking belongs to Present Pets.
