“A British survey [Duracell Toy Report] found Apple gadgets – the iPhone, iPad and iPod – were children’s most wanted toys,” Dickison reports. “Two-thirds of 13 to 15 year olds, half the children between 9 and 12, and one in five between 5 to 8 put an Apple product at the top of their list.”

Dickison reports, “New Zealand retailers echoed the findings, saying the new iPhone 4, which has been on shelves for two weeks, was selling fast to all ages, and it would be a top three present for Christmas.”

  1. This is great news. Not just because it means Apple is going to have a stellar holiday quarter, but because it means their brand is being planted into kids at a very young age.

    This is The Apple Generation! In 15 years, Macs will be everywhere. What’s Microsoft? Bill who?
