Unusual Christmas Request

Santa will be on his toes dropping down chimney's all over the world with gifts for the little ones. But he may have to work some Christmas magic to get this one down the chute.

5 year old Nicholas Nash wants a red Bissell vacuum cleaner. Since he was old enough to walk he has been fascinated with the machines and has a collection of more than 50.

For this year, he wanted to make sure Santa new exactly which one to put under the tree, so he took a little visual aide along for his visit with Kris Kringle.

"I find the red Bissell, I told him to get this one too and that one," says Nicholas, pointing at a sales catalogue.

"At first we didn't worry about it too much but then we thought he was a little too eccentric about it," says Nicholas's father.

"I talked to his pediatrician, and he assured me it was totally normal, he wasn't obessessed with cleaning really he just likes to help," says Nicholas's mother, Cindy.

Nicholas can already change vacuum bags, and is working on repairing broken belts.
