The car safety seat, it turns out, is for the doll.
"You might want to change the page," she told a reporter scribbling in his notebook, "I've got a lot more. Do you need a table?"
It turns out most of the additional items that needed to be listed consisted of items for the doll, like a stroller and crib. Santa had made no promises, telling most of the children he'd surprise them. But the kids liked him anyway.
"He's nice," said Vikey.
"He's really nice," stressed Aamiyah. "People kept saying over and over that he wasn't real, but he is."
One big subject of conversation Friday with first- and second-graders: missing teeth. Aamiyah gave Santa a big smile so he could see her missing tooth.
"He liked it. He said I have a pretty smile," she said.
She lost her tooth wrestling around with her brother, who she says got too rough. Though she and her classmates were already back in their room, the story about getting knocked down by her brother actually reminded her of a final message she was hoping could be passed on to the North Pole.
"You can tell Santa, 'Tony needs to be on the naughty list.'"
