The Kringle Report: Kids’ Holiday Wishlists Quantified”

(Separate Boys’ and Girls’ Editions)

Purpose: To provide the first-ever holiday wish-list tracker quantifying kids’ awareness and purchase interest in toys and games. These wish lists will be augmented by parent interviews to capture the power of “the nudge factor.”

Pitch: Each year as fall approaches, toy and game companies make bets as to what will be on kids’ holiday wish lists, often with only intuition and retailer reaction to guide them. “The Kringle Report” offers a never-before-available look at kids’ wish lists, starting in September and tracking them all the way to and beyond the big day.

Who’s Behind This: ConsumerQuest, Inc., a firm with more than 25 years’ experience conducting children’s research in the toy industry.
