Baffled parents have been revealing the strangest things their children have put on their Christmas wish lists - and it includes everything from hand sanitiser to a stick.
With the big day fast approaching, tickled Mumsnet users shared some of the most bizarre things their little ones had asked for from Santa, reported the Daily Mail.

Before long her fellow users began to reel off the strange things their own children had requested, with one revealing how their daughter asks for a sliced loaf of white bread every single year.
Another confused parent said that her eight-year-old son has been desperate for a full-sized wheelie bin to go in his bedroom.
"He has been talking about it since summer and insists that if he will buy it with his own money if he needs to", they said.
A possible budding interior designer asked for a stripy fruit bowl, much to his parent's bewilderment.
They said that they couldn't find a stripy one, so bought a white one and painted it for him.
Another parent said that their child asked for an Easter egg for Christmas, getting the religious holidays muddled up slightly.
