Buying presents for a 7-year-old is hard!
She's MY 7-year-old too... which makes it seem strange, but once I explain, hopefully you'll understand and be able to offer some great suggestions!
*I don't think she's THAT into toys anymore. Advertising gets to her, but she never really plays with the things she has... she's more likely to read, write stories or play with electronic crap.
*She has a DS, a computer and a TV of her own. She has access to a ps3, a wii and an xbox 360. We have iPhones that she has played on before. She has used DP's iPod touch too. She has her own stereo. DP wants to get a new WiiU. Basically, I don't think she needs an iPad or any such thing... she's got enough technology to waste her time on already (BUT if there are excellent games/etc for any of hte above... let me know!).
*She has no sibling to play with her, so any games that require more than her, mean I have to do it... and I will... sometimes... but I'd rather her not have a large amount of objects that require me to play... kwim?
*She is quite bright, and loves reading - any book suggestions?
*She already has a trampoline, a swing set, a bike, a scooter and a paddle pool.
*She owns a million Barbies, lego things, polly pocket junk, etc.
*She has a pet mouse and 2 pet fish of her own.
*She can't do "experiences" at animal parks because she's not really old enough yet.
*She is unco and is quite pale - therefore she kinda sucks at sport and doesn't like spending lots of time outside... so she plays on the things above outdoors, but actual sporting stuff is not something she'll be happy with.
BLEH! I dunno what on earth to get her.
I asked... she wants a hula hoop. Lol. That's setting the bar REALLY LOW - those things cost about $10. She's no help, clearly.
PLEASE HELP ME! *cries*
