My 5 year old dd is obsessed at the moment with anything from other countries - any Christmas present ideas related to this please?

How about some foreign currency?

Mancala game (played in Asia and Africa usually)
Soap stone sculpture in animal shape from whatever country it’s made in
Story books with tales from other cultures

Atlas (usborne do some good children’s ones)

UNICEF used to do lots of “children around the world” games and dolls

I'm brazilian and anything from Turma da Mônica is a huge hit for kids who are 5yo. You can probably find a few Turma da Mônica comics to buy in UK but i'm not sure if toys can be found easily...

Not a toy but there are tons of kids Havaianas too... i could send you a pair for free, they are incredibly cheap here. Just PM me if you want.

There is a Sticker Dolly Dressing book about "around the world costumes" that she might like?
