Hi, I'm looking for ideas for presents for an 8 year old girl please, feeling uninspired!

Place marking! I'm thinking of an iPod touch so she can play music in her room but I think they are expensive so I'm not sure really!

Also thinking about getting her a two wheeled scooter, she still has a maxi micro scooter at the moment.

Ooh good ideas, thanks!

We got her an Amazon Fire Kids device last year which was very well used for at least six months, less so now.

I'm going to get my dd a camera. Bit stuck for anything else though so place marking for ideas.

Heelies are something else I have thought about.

I have an 8 yr old DD. On her list this year are a Hatchimal (help!) furreal dragon, flashing heelies, Lego elves, disco ball light and a tablet. She won't be getting them all but they are some suggestions thlwink

Dd is 8 and asked for playmobil!! She's never had it but likes playing with animal playsets, dont think it was last though.

She Also has asked for her own record player, fairy lights, smiggle stuff and beanie boos.

My DD asked for a fucker scooter well that's what the list said. She means a flicker scooter.
She also wants a bmx
A unicorn onsie
Minecraft Lego
New David Walliams book.

Hope some of that helps. She's got a basic MP3 player and it's used loads. Cost about £20.

My dd who is 8 has asked for a Hatchimal (I'm not in UK so were easy to get luckily), David Walliams books and some other books she likes. Also Lego Elves dragons and Lego friends Tour Bus. She still likes Barbie type dolls, but more fancy ones iyswim, and my dm is bringing over Disney Descendants Dolls when she visits as Dd really likes the film and music. Smyths had them on sale recently.
I got her a cheap sewing kit today and I was planning on upgrading my sewing machine so I might give her my old one.
She's also just started liking Smiggle.

Dd has only got DHs ancient iPod and I was reading about using a really cheap smart phone without the sim as an mp3 player that she could also connect to spotify on too which is what she uses the family tablet for. I'm holding out on getting her a tablet as she wants other things more and she will need an iPad for school in 2018 onwards (don't get me started on that...)

Dd has asked for a desk, a science lab and a secret diary. I have already bought some science sets - make your own perfume, crystals, bath bombs. I am hunting down a cheaper secret diary as I'm not paying £40 for it!

She will also get
Lego Elves
Trolls dolls
Mermaid tail blanket
Heelies
Art kits

DD almost 8 has asked for and is getting
Lab coat and goggles
Lots of books inc Spy Pups, Rescue Zoo, The Secret Benedict Society and I'm making a poster of those characters
Lego pyramid
Extra long spaghetti
Zootropolis DVD

I'm also finishing a quilt I've been making for her forever.

She'll get a tonne of stuff from massive step family too.

DD is 7.5 at Xmas and has asked for a Furby Connect, a Hatchimal, a Walking Doll (she loves dolls and still plays with them a lot - managed to find one but the reviews aren't great and it wasn't expensive so Father Xmas is going to be blamed for buying that rubbish!), Jaqueline Wilson books and clothes from Joules and Fatface.

The Furby Connect she's having in November instead because she's having a 5th operation and I always feel guilty that she has to go through so much so we're treating her. Plus it was half price!

Also got her a small Classic Lego set. She's never had Lego as she's always preferred Playmobil but she always plays with the Lego at school so just got her a small £10 set.

does she have sleepovers - the trunk people do a cool one for older kids called the jurni. I also love the personalised tatty devine necklaces.

Place marking because my dd doesn't know what she wants! No sign of her wanting a hatchimal thankfully. A camera is a nice idea.
I'll definitely get
- Lego Friends
- Board Game
- Goth Girl books
But not sure what else

My DD is just 9 and wants lego Friends (the theme park stuff).
