People left divided over 12-year-old girl's Christmas list

People left divided over 12-year-old girl's Christmas list

A photo of the staggering list was posted on Reddit

Writing your Christmas list as a kid was always one of the best parts of the festive period – excitedly flipping through the Argos catalogue to see which Barbie dolls or Hot Wheels cars you wanted most and adding them to the sheet.

For many people, the process was a bit of a shoot-for-the-moon approach, as you’d know you’d be unlikely to get everything... as anyone who unsuccessfully found themselves asking for a dog every single year will know.

But one 12-year-old girl’s particularly ambitious list went viral after leaving people wondering just how much cash her parents must have.

You see, it wasn’t all socks and chocolate, more Dior and Apple. And Uggs. And Crocs. And Nike.

Posting a photo of the list on Reddit last year, a user explained that it was the Christmas list from their 12-year-old ‘American sister-in-law’.

The list featured everything from usual festive staples like ‘comfy PJs’ through to an iPhone 14 Pro Max, with various toys and clothing in between thrown in for good measure.

The list in full:

  • Sunset Lamp
  • Dior Necklace
  • Cinema Light Box
  • Florence
  • Dior Lip Oil (Raspberry)
  • Makeup
  • Comfy PJs
  • Uggs
  • Jordan 3s Dark Iris
  • Jordan 3s Fire Red
  • Crocs
  • Croc Jibits
  • Vanity Desk w/ Mirror & Drawers
  • Mascara
  • Earrings
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max
  • Candy
  • Bratz Dolls
  • Monster High Dolls
  • Ever After High Dolls
  • Necklace w/ Name
  • MacBook Pro
  • Silver iPad Pro w/ Apple Pencil
  • AirPods Pro
  • Cute Fuzzy Socks
  • Sweatpants (Grey & Black)
  • Hoodies – No Zipper!
  • Cute Crewneck

The 12-year-old had then instructed the reader to ‘turn page’, although we didn’t get to see how things progressed on the other side as the OP only posted the one picture.

Thankfully, another Reddit user had managed to enhance the photo to see the outline of the text on side two through the paper, flipping it round to show part of the second list.

This time, it included – but was by no means limited to:

  • Converse
  • Galaxy Light
  • LED Lights
  • Bath & Body Works Perfume
  • Phone Cases for iPhone
  • Crew Necks
  • Gift Cards
  • Mugs
  • Starbucks Cups
  • Smiley Slippers
  • Weighted Plushies
  • Blankets
  • Candles
  • Hair Straighteners
  • Hair Curling Iron
  • Makeup Organizer

Commenting on the post, one person said in disbelief: “Dude, seriously. How freaking rich are this kids parents?! Asking for this much wouldn’t even cross my mind because I knew better...”

Someone else said: “The 'turn page' is what gets me.”

A third added: “Lol my sister's list is, like, five pages taped together and rolled up, and it's like a foot taller than me when you unroll it.”

But many others actually came to the pre-teen's defence, with one writing: “I think this is a list of everything she would like to have not a list of what she expects under the tree.

"I always make a wish list to give an idea of what I would like but even as a kid I knew I wouldn't get everything. Do you guys really expect to get everything on your lists?”

Someone else pointed out: “12 y/o is that weird time between wanting to be a grown up but still enjoying toys.”

Another, who was a 6th grade teacher, agreed, saying: “They are turning the page from childhood to adolescence; which means they are half clinging to the last vestiges of childhood while also trying to figure out how to be an adolescent/soon to be teen."
