Im sure this has been done before however im really stuck and in need of some ideas.
Its my DD's birthday in a few weeks and we are very stuck as what to get her. She has tons of toy (that she doesnt play with) so dont want to buy toys.
She is very arty something she does everyday but because ive always encouraged art I buy stuff all the time so she doesnt really need anymore. she has lots of books dress ups ect.
Any ideas would be great

Does she have a scooter? or bike?
Did you ask her if there was anything she wanted? My 4 yr DD came up with a spiderman suit and a remote control spider..both of which were inexpensive and been much loved.
A new dress? if she is into them. A cute back pack? Jewellery box/music box?

She has all of the above. I have asked her what she would like but she asks for stuff she already has lol. Oh I just thought maybe an educational compter type thing? She is right into number and Letters atm. Is there any good ones?

My 4 year old also has an abundance of toys, but she does actually play with most of them.
- My Little Pony
- Disney Princesses
- Littlest Pet Shop
- Dinosaur Train
As far as educational type computers go, my DD has an iPod Touch, and I just download free games onto it.
I just buy craft stuff and books as I see them too, I don't really save them for gifts.
We recently went to Build A Bear and she enjoyed that, it kind of combines experience / toy.
She's been asking for rollerskates (currently no, she's very unco, I said maybe next year), and also more dress up stuff.
Non toy stuff - dress up jewellery, Disney Princess perfume, nice hair brush, quality sunglasses.

Sounds like my 4yo DD. She has oodles of toys and rarely plays with them. All she wants to do it draw, paint, craft stuff. I think an outing would be better than a gift. Where are you located? If in Melb you could do ice skating at Docklands followed by lunch, or if you want to spend more maybe tickets to Disney on Ice which is coming soon.

My mum got our two crazy crabs for their 4th birthday, and we got them all mice for Christmas (they turned 4 last sunday). What about a DSi or 3DS?

My DD is 4 in May. I will be getting her a new kindy backpack. A nice one, not some revolting themed one (she currently has a hideoous Abby Cadaby one her granny got her at the royal show).
A new dress. My DD is very into clothes.
She loves her Barbie CD player she got last year. I might get her some new CD's.

A pony trail-ride? Pack a special picnic lunch and make a day of it. The minimum age is 4 years at one we've booked in to. (DD & I are going next weekend).

I bought my niece a VTech digital camera for Christmas. She's 4.
At Costco it was $30, at big W 2 weeks ago it was just under a hundred!!!
Wish I'd bought one for my daughter, even if she is only 2.
