Eighty-eight percent of US 12-to-17-year-olds want something digital for the holidays this year, CNET reports, and 69% want an Apple product. For girls (and teens overall), the iPhone tops wish lists, for boys it’s the PlayStation 4. The iPad and Xbox One were close to the top, followed by an Apple iPod. The survey, by market researcher TNS Global for Ebates.com found that parents’ guesses about teens’ picks were pretty in sync with teens’ wishes. Other digital products of interest were the game Call of Duty Ghosts, the Samsung Galaxy smartphone, the game Grand Theft Auto 5 and the Samsung Smartwatch. “When it came to top picks of non-electronic gift items, both parents and teens chose a gift card to their favorite store as the #1 item,” the survey found.

There were some toys on people’s lists, but it looks like they were parents’ shopping lists for littler kids. For them, TNS found that parents’ top picks were Legos, Big Hugs Elmo and the game Skylanders, in that order.
