DD has just started getting into ballerinas and fairies, but I don't want to go down the whole Barbie route yet <sob>

Her birthday is close to Xmas, and for that she is getting a scooter, so Xmas presents don't need to be huge. She is also getting some ballet-related stuff.

For Xmas I have ordered a DVD, a few books, a jigsaw and that shopping list game. Anything other non-princessy suggestions?

£10 and Argos has it as part of 2 for £15 on toys.

Easel (ikea have a fairly inexpensive one)? Duplo? Cash register/wooden play food for pretend cafe/shop play? Marble run?
