Stat-fanatics The Nielsen Company are back with another look at what’s hot and popular—this time focusing on which gaming systems and other technological toys the youth of America want this holiday season.

Shockingly, those surveyed in both groups—kids aged 6~12, and then people 13+—most want an iPad at some point in the next six months. Okay, that’s not shocking at all, is it. For those under twelve, the next most-wanted gift may or may not be a surprise to you: Nintendo’s Wii U. (For those 13 and older, the Wii U ranks 4th.)

What about the rest of the gaming systems? Check out the charts below for the answers to that question, but one point to note: kids 6~12 want a PSP more than a Vita. For shame, kids—for shame.
