LONDON, Dec. 25 (UPI) -- A survey of parents shopping at two British stores found some of the most common Christmas requests among children were a new baby sibling and a father.

The survey of 2,000 parents at Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City found children between the ages of 3 and 12 asked for Christmas gifts including a new baby brother or sister, a real reindeer, a horse, a car and a father, The Daily Telegraph reported Tuesday.

Officials said requests for a mother also made an appearance, but further down the list.

Odder requests reported by parents include Christmas wishes for beetroot, the moon, a pond cover, a time machine, actress Eva Longoria and Harry Styles from boy band One Direction.
