|At Spacy's Department Store on Black Friday, Sid Slapdash, replete with dyed
white beard and pillow-filled red suit, made his debut as Santa Claus.
Unfortunately, Sid's career as the North Pole legend lasted only five
children! It seems each of the first five in line asked Sid--er, Santa--for
a Christmas present intended for someone much older than him or her, one
requesting an iPod--a wish which Sid--er, Santa--readily promised would be
under the family tree on Christmas morning. After hearing from the irate
parents, Spacy's manager had to fire Sid--er, Saint--Nick. Given the clues
below, can you track in order 1st-5th Sid Slapdash's career as Santa Claus:
the full name and age (each is a different age from 4- to 8-years-old) of
each child and the wish list request Sid--er, Santa--granted him or her?
- Amanda, who isn't the Sparks child, isn't the one who asked for a video
- Immediately after Jeremy sat on Sid's--er, Santa's--knee, the child who
wants an HDTV put in a request; the 4-year-old was later than these two
in line to see Santa Claus.
- Emily, who isn't the 8-year-old, and the Good child burst into tears when
their parents told them they weren't getting the big gift promised them.
- Kristin, who isn't the 4-year-old, isn't the one whose wish list has an
HDTV on it.
- The child who asked for a video camera sat on Sid's--er, Santa's--knee
sometime later than the Sparks child, who immediately followed Emily in
line to talk to the great bearded one.
- The Mason child isn't the 5-year-old.
- The cell phone request didn't come from the 3rd child in line.
- The child who asked for the HDTV, who isn't the 6-year-old, and the
Wilder child didn't ask for presents other than the too-big ones.
- The 8-year-old immediately followed Chad on Sid's--er, Santa's--knee,
while the Decker child was later to talk to the jolly elf.
- Jeremy, who isn't the Sparks child, and the 5-year-old were both dressed
in red outfits for the visit to Santa's workshop.
- The Good child was immediately followed in line by the child, not the
4-year-old, who wants a laptop for Christmas.
