Santa Claims That Nintendo Is #1 On Kids’ Lists
The Times-News in Twin Falls, Idaho took a few minutes out of their busy day to talk to Santa Claus. As it turns out he’s spilled the beans on what most kids want for Christmas and it’s the Nintendo Entertainment System! It’s OK if Mom and Dad also want one – there’s plenty to play for everyone. Note the Kay-Bee toy store employee talking about how popular Super Mario Bros. 2 and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link are. We bet they’re sold out!
