According to a survey on TV Tokyo's news, the least popular present this Christmas are video game consoles.

Japanese children up to the age of 12 were asked what they wanted for Christmas.

Here are the results...

...drum roll please...

...from most popular to less so:

1. Video game software (over 450 kids said this)
2. Pretty Cure goods (over 100 kids said this)
3. Anpanman goods
4. Books (picture book, book, illustrated encyclopedia)
5. Kamen Rider goods
6. Bicycle
7. Toy car
8. Clothes
9. Stuffed animal
10. Video game console

Since most children already have at least one video game console, that of course could explain the lack of desirability.
