Our daughter is turning 6 soon and isn't into anything in particular so we are struggling for suggestions to add to her wish list for friends and family to buy for birthday and Christmas. What is in these days for this age and stage - all ideas welcome. She has LEGO (doesn't give it that much attention), and plenty of small Disney princesses!

I always say crafting equipment, paint, paper, craft sets etc.

It's my 6 year old's birthday today smile
We have got her:
Sylvanian Families (a few different sets), a beauty and the beast dress with shoes and a headband, magformers, a barbie, some rhythmic gymnastics ribbons, some books, a maths game, Trolls lamp/nightlight and a beauty and the beast play set.

Crafting stuff

Spirograph. My dd loved that for Christmas (she's nearly 6).

A construction toy called plus plus.

Little games eg dobble.

What kind of Lego does she have? The non girly stuff is better eg Lego creator.

Marble run

Playdoh is still a hit here.


A flower press.

Thanks, some of these things are new to me so I'm off to google to check them out. She has recently been given a sylvannian family of cats but I was reluctant to add to the collection as it gets expensive if she becomes a big fan! She does still play with her dolls house from time to time and drowns care what characters are in it so may give this a rethink.

I like the idea of dobble or getting her into other more 'grown up games' but not sure what is right for this age and stage.

Are there any other good educational games/activities that you might recommend. She is slow to get excited about maths and I need fun ways to keep her engaged in reading aloud.

Orchard toys do some fun maths games - one is around a wizard thing I think and can't remember the other. Hey have little cards and you touch with your finger and the heat reveals the answer!

My 6 year old got design a friend doll and clothes, Mia and Me and shimmer and shine toys.

Build a bear is great for that age but again can turn into an expensive collection!

If you have an iPad check out OSMO.

Games - dobble, link it, qwirkle, uno (card game), connect four, frustration, monopoly (there is a junior one if you think the adult one is too hard, but you may be surprised, I find that kids get the adult one earlier than you'd expect), operation, guess who.

Play doh.

Dress up.

Something special for her room - Door sign, new bedding

A pet - fish?

Lego juniors is good for Lego reticent children.
