I will spend more on her for her birthday next year (9) but it always depends on her age, what she's into, and what I feel is value for money. For her birthday I will buy her a stereo system with iPod dock, CD player, radio and turntable with her own set of Iron Maidem records and some CDs. My mum has an old-style iPod for her. The type like an average cheap MP3 player. It will come to over 2k all up but I know she will be ready for it, and will have outgrown her current Hello Kitty CD player/radio she got for her 3rd birthday.
