DS1 has been invited to the 6th birthday party of one of the girls in his class and he really wants to go - BUT I have no idea what 6yr old girls like to play with/do as I only have boys - need ideas that cost no more than £10....PLEASE

My dd turned six recently and she liked the following presents from her party:

Craft sets - all sorts
"Secret diary" type thing, with pens/stickers included
My Scene doll
Real China tea set

Meant to add, craft sets are a safe bet IMO

£10? That's extremely generous, I never spend more than five on party presents.

DD is five and a half and I think anything sparkly goes down well, or one of those craft sets like 'make a fairy from a peg' in bookshops, or even a book?

Stationery sets - usually cost around £5/6 or just buy bits and pieces (little notebooks, 'pretty' pencils, stamps, stickers, postcards etc)

Galt do craft kits for about £6 - make your bracelet etc type stuff

My dd wouldn't really appreciate a voucher yet - she would prefer something there and then.

Stationery very VERY popular in this house. My dd has about 500 notebooks, but her eyes still light up when she gets a new one.

emkana - same here! We are ankle deep in little messages, drawing, stories etc.

Not sure about the Claire's voucher - good idea for maybe 8 or older?

Hama beads
Lockable note books with annoyingly small keys that always get lost
Gel/glitter pens
Hair bands/slides
Pretty notepaper and envelopes
Craft kits (tesco v.good)
Pop Party CDs (tesco again)
Rainbow Fairy books (awful but DD loves them)
Flip flops
Sparkly t-shirts (Tesco/Asda)
Plenty of stuff for £5 that my DD would be pleased to be given

cod you are not a six year old girl though are you?

fannyannie Fri 29-Jun-07 00:57:40

ooo lots of lovely ideas here - usual budget is about £5 but he's good friends with this girl (he's got a birthday party the week before for a boy in his class - who'll get up to £5 spent on him as they're not really that close)

my 6yo DD loves reading, esp Horrid Henry books & Famous Five ( i knwo , Enid Blyton not very pc but she doesnt care)

she hates barbie tat (me too)

MrsCarrot Fri 29-Jun-07 10:22:22

That is the point though, Cod, you have to get them back for all the craft kits they've given you

craft kits are a pita

except pens and papery things and hama beads

I can highly recommend the Galt mini stationary set in a metal tin - 9.99 most toyshops/smiths do it

Agree about craft kits. At 6, they still need a good deal of parental involvement....and it can be no fun.

Besides lots and lots of books, DD's favourite presents were a few board games (Monopoly Jr was best), a magic kit, and a Tamagotchi.

Enid Fri 29-Jun-07 10:39:51

oh yes board games are good at this age

also those invisible writing pens
a pinboard (dd1s fave present last year)

avoid pink plastic - some girls have really grown out of this by now

Earlybird Fri 29-Jun-07 10:45:38

Yes, dd also loved a variation on a pinboard - hers has magnets.

She also really likes pretty hairbands/hairclips/necklaces - Monsoon has some great ones. With some birthday money, she chose some Barbie perfume for girls (not too obnoxious smelling) that she is very pleased with.

MrsCarrot Fri 29-Jun-07 10:45:45

oh yes, hama beads are great, mine love those. Our windows are adorned with various designs though they get stuck in the sashes.

There are lots of those invivible pens around too, a dairy set might be fun
