Children ask Santa for Dinosaurs at Christmas
It is traditional for children to write to Santa Claus or Father Christmas letting him know what toys they want him to bring for Christmas presents. The media is full of stories at the moment about which types of toys have sold well and which ones have dropped in popularity. We came across one news story that discussed the content of children’s letters to Santa and dinosaurs as pets and dinosaur toys were proving to be very popular requests.
Many letters addressed to Santa’s toy shop head quarters at the North Pole, letters from young girls and boys, contained requests for dinosaurs as Christmas presents. The idea of a pet dinosaur is intriguing, we have often speculated what sort of dinosaur would make a good pet if they were still around today, but we have to confess that the vast majority of the dinosaur species would have been very unsuitable as domestic pets.
