COLUMBIA, S.C. — The most popular Christmas gift in South Carolina for 2019 has surprised many people, WPDE reported.

According to a study that looks at Google Trends, the gift was Play-Doh.

In North Carolina, the top gift was a Blume Doll, which is a flower pot that, when water is sprinkled over it, grows a mystery doll, according to the study.

Another shopper said her daughter loves Play-doh but was surprised so many other kids do, as well.
