I got my DD to write Santa a list. So she did. And she emailed it to me with a $ sign beside the things she REALLY wants!!
So I am going to get her a $15 skateboard, a dvd, a book, I have her a justin beiber perfume and I am not sure what else.

Monster High dolls are on the list here - and the DVD that goes with it!

DD wrote a list..here is some of it :
Littlest pet shop stuff
Fur real butterscotch
Moshi Monsters DS game
A jewellery box
Ear rings NOT studs
Moshi Monsters membership
The new Tinkerbell DVD
AND as her main present she wants an ipod touch, ipad, iphone and a Wii U
Obviously she isn't getting all that, but it gives an idea of what she wants.
Oh and she wants $$ so we can go shopping together for a girlie day out before school starts.

That was the year we got DD1 an iPod.
If yours already has one, then a $50 itunes voucher could be the main present & she could go crazy with music & games.
She hadn't been into toys for a few years prior.

My DD is seven and a half and on the younger side when it comes to interests I think. She is getting:
A dollhouse ( that's her number one request. I didn't get her one last year as I thought she'd outgrow it!)
A couple of mini la la loopsy sets
A my lps set
A boogy board
A few sets of clothes which she loves getting
New swimmers and rashies
She's also asked for some lego friends so I might get that
Might also get her a barbie DVD
She would desperately love an ipad or iPod but she'll have to wait. We all share one ipad and 2 iPhones without an issue at the moment.

I have got my DD 8 a Furby (I don't think she even knows what they are but figured she would love it as she is obsessed with animals and the like), some Littlest Pet Shops and small bits and pieces and a few clothes.
Unicorn, My kids have those scooters and they are brilliant and alot safer than traditional scooters as they have a hand break so can stop with minimal fuss. Plus you can ride them uphill easy enough.
