Could someone please help with some gift ideas for a nearly 5 year old, as I have no clue what to get DD this year.

She currently likes playing with

- barbies
- dolls house with Sylvanian families animals
- toy kitchen, dolls, role play toys.

Every time I ask her what she wants she says "a mermaid, and not a toy one mummy a real one" confused

Last year she got spoilt so has the usual things like bike, scooter, dolls buggy etc.

Thanks in advance.

Playbook campervan. Dirt cheap today. I have been reading rave reviews of it on this forum.

What about robo mermaid? Iv got my daughters these. Basically same as robo fish but mermaids around £8. Activate in water. Iv got them one each for playing in bath but u can buy a mermaid tank about £20.

Other things Iv got for them is
Leapfrog scribble and write
Make up stuff
Dance & fly fairy

Posted a reply but it ain't showing up...

Playmobil campervan sounds like something she would really like, do you think it would work with her Sylvanian animals, would they fit in it ok?

Hadn't thought of a real camera, we did look at a hello kitty one in the summer but it didn't look too good and was only 1.3mp, maybe a real one would be a good idea as she does like taking photos on my phone.

Ah robo mermaid looks pretty good! I have a big smyths near me so will go over in Friday and get one I think!

Thanks again! thanks

I agree with you about tablet - DD prefers the apps on my ipad and uses that way more the tablet she had, it was a innotab one so not the same as a leapfrog but there's just so many apps on the ipad and the other various things.

I'll check out tesco for robo mermaids - thank you!

Marble run is something DD might like, thanks for that!

Thanks sunshine - I think leapfrog are kind of the tablet parents buy who feel a bit guilty about getting a tablet so get the 'worthy' one - rather she had something we could add films, music, photos etc and v v v v v slowly introduce her to the internet.

We found the bright minds website useful for ideas it is v pricy but you can find most of the stuff cheaper elsewhere.

Ha, you're spot on about Leappads being worthy.

Quokka - yeah it's great that she can watch the odd film on the ipad, she has a playlist of her favourite songs on it too, plus I've managed to find some really good educational apps.

The my little pony sounds good!

Thank you for all the ideas it has really helped! I was just at a total blank this year thanks
