We (Wishing Tree Games) are working on one of our upcoming projects, Christmas Chaos, but we'd like to get a few ideas for the some promo "Letter to Santa" cards

The "Letter to Santa" promo cards are basically that...they will have a child's name, and 1-2 presents that the child wants from Santa, and the card will also show the materials needed to build the toy(s).

We'd like these promo cards to be based on pop culture kids that had/wanted a toy(s).

Here are 3 examples that we will be using:

Ralphie
BB Gun

Andy
Cowboy Doll and Larry Lightspeed

Dennis
Slingshot



So, we need two more! List your idea by commenting below, and if we pick it, I'll shoot some geekgold your way. How much is a surprise, but it will be at least enough to buy a microbadge!

If you want to learn more about WTG or the game, click on the geek links above or visit our website, www.wishingtreegames.com

Nice list! For the game purposes, I think the baseball and speak-n-spell ideas would work best...if we use the speak-n-spell, we'd have to come up with a different name though, that still lets people recognize the reference. Maybe a talk-n-spell?

Good ideas so far. I'm noticing a trend...all of the ideas are references to boys.

Anyone have any ideas for a girl & toy?

Do the "kids" need to be human? Or are you also interested in animals who are portrayed like humans? If you are, Angelina Ballerina could also be a possibility, with the toy being ballet shoes.

You could also use any girls name with the toy being an EZ-Bake Oven. Those are very much pop culture icons and are generally marketed towards girls.
