Remember that one Christmas or Hanukkah gift you always wanted as a kid? Be it a Tickle Me Elmo or My Little Pony, your entire life revolved around that toy, and nothing could stop you from receiving it. (Except maybe your parents.) This holiday season, we're asking five LA style stars to reveal their best childhood wishes.

Eleven months ago, we introduced you to Courtney Trop, a new LA blogger with an unmatched knack for dressing down. In less than a year, Trop's mastery of minimalism has landed her a diehard readership on Always Judging, more than 35,000 followers on Instagram, a handful of hosting gigs and collabs with everyone from Stella & Bow to LnA.
It's hard to imagine it being grown up now, but the things I would do as a little kid for that tiny talking fur ball called Furby. As I stood in line a few weeks ago at a ridiculous hour waiting for Isabel Marant for H&M, it brought back memories of playing the same game for Furby. I even said out loud, "I haven't been this excited since Furby!" My mom was quite possibly one of the best mothers for waiting in line outside the mall at 7am in a blizzard just so I could be one of the first kids to get the faux fuzzy pet. I swear, every now and then I hear Furby giggling from the basement whenever I'm at my childhood home.
