I need to buy a present for a girl who will be 6, I have all boys and no idea what girls are into. All ideas will be gratefully received after a very unsuccessful shopping morning!

my 3 girls all like a lot of the same things that boys like - they aren't a separate species. (2 of my dds loathe hair bobbles or girly stuff, don't assume all girls are into frilly accessories).

Mine at 6 have liked art and craft stuff, games, lego, playmobil, geomag, messy stuff like dinosaur swamp kits, science kits, puzzle books, skateboards and accessories.

Animals. Pink and princesses are out in my house, and animals and blue are in. As are all factual books - Usborne is great for these - science kits, sticker books. Arts and crafts are always a winner with my girls.

At 6 (she's now 7.5) dd was just outgrowing princesses and growing into High School Musical and Hannah Montana. She loved stuff for her hair, bags, books (Rainbow Magic goes down well with that age group), stationery (notebooks have always been received gladly). She's always been happy with a Barbie. GoGos and Silly Banz are very 'in' at the moment.

Hope that helps.

Oh - and she was and is into playing 'Spies' so a toy spy kit was both well-receivd and much envied by her friends. Skipping ropes also go down well as they are just starting to master it by this age.

I'm glad to hear Enchanted Forest is popular, I bought it for my 6yo dd's next birthday but don't really know if it's any good.

A perfect gift would be a diary that you can lock. DD just got one and loves it. M&S does one, I think.

can't go wrong with a sparkly handbag and/or jewellery/hair bobbles from claires or accessorise depending on your budget.

Stories on cd

Agree 6 is moving out of the princess stuff and into HSM or Hannah territory. My dd loves Build a bear , perfume, body spray lip gloss etc any clothes and hair , jewellery things etc
What about a nice jewellery box

7yo twin girls here, a year ago they were into sylvanian families, yoohoo and friends toys, anything crafty, hair stuff, hama, secret diary etc (and still are!)

My DD likes talking cushions off the sofa and incorporating them into various games. It is her absolute favourite thing. And I don't just mean the scatter cushions, I also mean the bit you sit on and lean against. It is really quite uncomfortable to sit in our house. Not sure how that translates to a gift though.

I would buy hamma beads, zhu zhu hamster or ottoline books for a 6 yo girl I did not know that well.

As a parent of a DD (6), i would avoid jwellery and make up as they probably have it in abundance already.

My DD loves Aqua beads, Hama Beads, HSM (Hannah Montana a bit old for her yet), Hello Kitty, Nice (sparkly) nighties and PJ's, Zhu Zhu hamsters and being a bit of a girly girl, dolls, barbies and build a bear.

Can't go wrong with craft stuff really as it suits most kids.
