All I want for Christmas: Players' favorite toys

Can you guess who once got a Spider-Man pinball machine, or the player who was thrilled to unwrap a VCR?

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


Malcolm Butler: 10-speed bike

Jonathan Casillas: Underwear


James Develin: Pog Stadium

Nate Ebner: Xbox 360

Julian Edelman: VCR


Jimmy Garoppolo: Bike

Jonas Gray: Air Jordan XIII, from "He Got Game"


Rob Gronkowski: Bike

Duron Harmon: Blue Huffy bike with pegs

Nate Solder: Spider-Man pinball machine


Bryan Stork: Dirtbike

Shane Vereen: Silver Mongoose bike


James White: PlayStation 2

Tim Wright: PlayStation 2

If these player favorites have inspired you to hit the toy store in search of a special gift, don't forget to pick up something extra for a child in need. Through December 14, the Patriots Charitable Foundation is collecting new, unwrapped toys to be donated to area hospitals and homeless shelters. Click here for all the details.
