My little girl turned 8 this year and we gave one of her friends a lava lamp as a gift. It was a huge hit, and it is now the 'gift-of-choice' for Ella and her friends.

I'm up to about 6 .... the local toy shop I buy them from knows me on a first name basis and know exactly which section I'm heading to when I enter the store!

And I've found the boys think they're pretty cool, too!
