Fifth-grade students at Longfellow Elementary School on Friday will announce the top 10 toys for children this holiday season.
The results are based on a toy survey the students conducted. For over a month, students worked in teams to survey classmates on the playground and in the cafeteria.
This is the ninth consecutive year Longfellow students have conducted a toy survey. In addition to their findings, students will showcase samples of the top toys, which will be provided by Target.
Separate lists provided for boys’ and girls’ most desired gifts
Every year, HISD’s Longfellow Elementary students take it upon themselves to find the top gifts for children to help parents tackle their holiday shopping. Today, after more than a month of research, the fifth-grade students revealed this year’s top 10 most-wanted holiday gifts for boys and girls.

“My favorite part about the toy survey was working in teams,” said fifth-grader Dasani Godfrey. “We got together and came up with the different toys we thought students would want for the holidays.”
Lists to be released just in time for holiday shopping
What: For the fourth consecutive year, fifth-grade students at Longfellow Elementary School will host a press conference to release their top toys for children this holiday season based on the results of their surveys.
