All I want for Christmas: Players' favorite toys

The holiday season is in full swing and this week, Patriots players have brought festive cheer to kids in the community, from Children's Hospital Boston to our very own holiday party at Gillette Stadium

So, we decided to ask the players to take a walk down memory lane to holiday seasons past and share with us the gifts they were most excited about as kids. Bikes and video games were popular picks, but some of the others may surprise you (ahem, Julian Edelman and Jonathan Casillas).

Ryan Allen: Gas-powered scooter

Kyle Arrington: GI Joes
