Neil Patrick Harris Kids' Christmas Lists

Neil Patrick Harris Reveals the Hilariously Extravagant Items on His Kids' Christmas Lists

When Neil Patrick Harris sat down with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night, the subject of his and husband David Burtka's adorable twins, Harper and Gideon, came up. Apparently, the precocious 6-year-olds have some very interesting picks for their Christmas lists this year, including life-size rocket ships and massive doll houses. "We live in the city. That's what I said to him — 'Where are we supposed to put a life-size rocket?'" the A Series of Unfortunate Events star joked. "Our daughter, Harper, asked for a pink karaoke machine. Pink? I get the karaoke part but does it need to be pink?"

His daughter also took a page out of her brother's book by asking for a life-size doll house. "The other thing that Harper asked for was a doll house, but a life-size doll house for her," he continued. "And I said . . . she's 48 inches tall. I said, 'Harper, a life-size doll house is just a house. You want me to get a house for you?' And she said, 'Yeah.' And I said, 'What is it with these giant gifts? Where do we put a life-size doll house that's large enough for you or a person?' And she said, 'On the roof.'" NPH was also kind enough to share a photo of Gideon's handwritten list on Instagram, and it's just as cute as you can imagine.
