Really stuck eith what to get our dd who was 5 in the autumn. Doesn't help that she has bike and scooter and the only thing she has said she wants is a baby doll. She has 4 already.

My dd was into role play and dressing up at that age.
I bought her a briefcase (to play schools) and teacher stationery bits like " Great Work" stamps and I printed out lots of registers and attached them to a clipboard.

My dd is that age and also wants a doll "that wees", even though she has loads of dolls. Managed to get her baby born interactive for 22.49 reduced from 39.99. She also wanted a double buggy and got a nice 3 wheeler one from john Lewis (own brand) for £28.
She is also getting some Lego friends which I think she will love and some sylvanian families (which she doesn't have yet).

Mine tends to play with small animal figures a lot - Littlest Pet Shop kind of things.

She's asked for the Baby Annabell Care For Me Doll and a Toffee the Pony for Christmas.

She hardly ever plays with dolls but we have got the doll because of the 3 for 2 offer in Argos. However, if she doesn't play with it then her little sister will so it won't be wasted. She'll love the pony though.

She also wants Aquabeads, which my mum is getting. She loved Hama beads so I think she'll like them.

Dressing up, sylvanian familes, drawing and her camera

Camera, bloody genius. DH is a photographer and she sends a fair bit of time borrowing my phone or camera and photographing everything in sight,

Mine likes playmobil and other small dolls/characters/animals. Does your dd have a dolls house?

playmobil, duplo, drawing things, she loves to make biscuits with me and has her own cutter.

Yes, she's got a dolls house and we were lucky enough to get one of those massive Sylvanian Family hotels second hand last year with loads of stuff, so she has that too hmm.
