What is the equivalent now of a popple - present ideas for a 5 yr old please.

I remember really wanting a popple when I was about 7 or 8 (late 80s), and I am trying to think of a present for my niece (5.3) for Christmas. I wondered if there is an equivalent now - I looked up popples in Amazon but they dont seem to be the same anymore.

I am a bit clueless about buying for girls, so any ideas for 5 year olds girls would be great. Thanks.

Never heard of popples. Suspect I am too old!

My DD is 6 and has asked FC for Pet Shops (little plastic animals with oversized heads). HTH

What's a popple? I was 12 in the the 'late 80s (1989 to be precise) and I've never heard of them?

Sorry went away too quickly from that. Popples were furry ball shaped animals that you could turn inside out and they became a ball. Sunds a bit rubbish now actually, but I remember everyone I knew having one.
