For almost 60 years Canadian kids have eagerly awaited the arrival of the annual Sears Wish Book. When I was a child, I fondly remember flipping through the pages every day prior to Christmas trying to decide which toy I wanted the most.

I'm not sure how many kids today still look forward to the Wish Book but it was fun to find out that Sears now has a Wish Book application for the iPad so 21st century can enjoy the fun.

The app lets users view thousands of items, add times to virtual Wish Lists and even purchase with the tap of the finger on the iPad. The application also includes a built-in gift list organizer.

The Sears Wish Book iPad application is now available as a free download from the Apple iTunes App Store.
