Other dd only wants lego so that is easy!
She likes outdoors, elephants & space. Have already ordered women of NASA lego thanks to another thread. Budget about £30, no older friends/ rellies so she (and I!) don't really know what's out there! She might like girly things, says she likes toys but never plays with them (also never does kits!). I am stumped! She basically only plays with lego!

I have found just the think; an elephant you build out of lego! Perfect for your DD if she loves both lego and elephants and reasonable price as well. Link below:

Or maybe an elephant bracelet?

Maplin have a beginner's metal detector on offer at the moment and free delivery. If she is into the outdoors already she might find it interesting and quirky.

Is it just space or science generally? There's a magazine called Whizz, Pop, Bang that's meant to be good. I've bought an annual subscription for Christmas and it says you'll get one normal edition and a Space edition before Christmas so that you can wrap them up as a 'starter pack'. I'm hoping it's good!

Does she have a phone or access to one? What about a VR headset?

My DD10 also loves the outdoors and all animals... she really loves her existing camera and I'm probably going to buy her the Instamax Mini 9 as it prints your photos as you take them. DD loves taking pics of trees, flowers, birds etc in the garden. Just a thought...

Or else what about a telescope? Or a pair of binoculars so she can bird watch etc?

We got dd a microscope last year which was a big hit. Also a telescope.

Thank you! Fingerlings look fun - I'd never heard of them! And Tim peake's book is a good idea too!

Tim Peakes book is fab, I bought it last year for my step dad and I wish I had kept it for myself.

A telescope is a great idea but not sure if you will get a good one for £30, I bought mine from Amazon on a Black Friday deal so might be worth looking there next week?

My dd1 likes birdwatching and taking photos, she wants a camera from her Dad but to get one good enough for capturing birds is quite expensive. You could get a bird box with camera if she likes that sort of thing? If your lucky you might get birds nesting in it for spring?
