Nostalgic memories of tearing out pages in the toy section or writing your name in highlighter beside the exact Barbie Doll or Playmobil Knight you always wanted can now be replaced with just the touch of a screen with Sears new Wish Book application for iPad, Canada's first shoppable iPad Catalogue application!

"Seeing our magical Wish Book cover come to life on my iPad was so exciting for my family and me," said Calvin McDonald, President and CEO, Sears Canada. "Beyond the cover this app gives our customers the ability to easily organize and purchase all the gifts for their families and friends this Holiday season."

Thousands of items can be viewed, added to Wish Lists or purchased with the tap of the finger on the iPad.  The application also includes a built-in gift list organizer to manage Holiday gift giving and shopping.  Sharing your finds with family and friends is easy by connecting on email, Twitter or Facebook.
