Dd is just 8 . I'm on a very limited budget. Not sure what I could afford, but any ideas for somethibg nice under twenty quid? She likes smellies, cats, rabbits, arty stuff and snuggly things.

She's not going without by the way...she had loads for her birthday just gone, including a new bike from a very generous friend.

Are you anywhere near a Tiger store? They do loads of very low-cost craft stuff. (If you haven't ever been, it's like the market place bit of IKEA, with loads of low-cost but really useful stuff at unbelievable prices.)

They don't have a webshop, but their store locator is here:

Dunelm mill have kids 'teddy' throws for under £10(they are super snuggly), could add to crafty crocodile bits?

Dammit, posted before saw your broken foot post! Do sign up to Cass Arts email - their stuff is amazingly expensive, but then they will have a flash sale and this really high-end stuff is 85% off for a day or so before it goes back up. Their online store is here:

It's ok I could beg a lift from a friend if it was only a one off for a few things....

This looks like fun:
foil art set . There are various sets, she might prefer an animals one.

Primark has some really snuggly fleecy pjs for a tenner. I just got DD some Olaf ones for her birthday, for lounging about in rather than sleeping in.
