As a kid, I remember sifting through the Christmas Wishbook and circling the things I wanted for Christmas.
Now as a parent, I know this had to have made my parents life a whole lot easier when deciding what to get me for Christmas. As long as I wasn't circling the super, ultra deluxe outdoor playhouse that cost $300+ anyway. haha
With the internet available, however I find that my 4 year old enjoys building her wish list online, which works great for me, because I can just send my family a link to her Christmas list instead of trying to explain to them what she circled in the catalogs.
She is building her own Christmas wish list on this site: http://www.wishcove.com. It is a cool wish list maker for kids. This is an example of what the wish list looks like that you send out to family:

It is a little heavy on the graphics, but a very cool site for kids.
