IPSWICH kids are looking for technological presents this Christmas.

At least, that's what they're asking Santa for.

For some, choosing the perfect present can be tricky. To ensure you get it right, we spoke to the big man himself, while he was on a break at Ipswich City Square, to find out exactly what the kids of Ipswich are wishing for.

"This year, there have been lots of very well-behaved children, which is lucky because there are lots of fantastic gifts they are hoping for," Santa revealed.

"It's nice to see that once again lots of children are asking for surprises.

"The elves and I do have so much fun working on surprises."

For those looking for specific presents, here is Santa's top 10, based on the visits and letters he has received: iPod Touch; games for Wii and Xbox - Skylanders

is the most popular; iPad; Nintendo 3DS; make-up; bikes; clothes; hair accessories; cameras and books.

We also asked Santa about some of the strangest requests.

"This year I've received letters asking for a spaceship with lasers, to become a mermaid and even one request for a million dollars," he said.

No matter how big, small or strange your request, Santa looks forward to meeting the children of Ipswich.

He will be at Ipswich City Square, outside Harvey Norman, every Thursday to Sunday up to Christmas from 11am until 2pm.

You can also post your letter to Santa outside Harvey Norman until December 19 and Santa will write back.
