I know it depends what they're into, but any ideas for neat toys, activities, books, crafts or something you got a young girl one year that was a huge hit? What are you moms of 7-ish year old girls getting for them this year? Would love to hear your ideas. Pogo stick? Karaoke machine? Trying to come up with things that are really fun and could be enjoyed for awhile. Any price range (within reason. she's not getting a pony!) Thanks!

What can I do next?

If she doesn't already have a Razor Scooter - that'd be one of my top picks. Fun, practical, and much easier to take along in the car than a bicycle.

Other ideas: subscription to National Geographic Kids (IME kids *love* getting mail that's addressed to them), art/craft supplies, board games

Nintendo 3DS w/ Super Mario 3D Land & Fantasy Petz 3D
UDraw for the XBox 360

Bizu Studio Mega Pack (the bead animal braceletes that turn into figurines)
Lots of clothes from Justice (her favorite place on earth)
Rainbow Unicorn Pillow Pet (from Justice)
Nano Block Dolphin Kit
Ivy & Bean books
Mad Libs (she LOVES mad libs)
Rainbow Scratch Art Kit

A huge bin that I'm filling w/ tons of craft supplies & craft kits (she'll luv it!)
Glow in the dark stars for her ceiling

She is really easy to please right now. She loves reading and adores crafts. I'm thinking the big craft bin will be one of her favorites. Googly eyes, pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, pom poms, glitter, tape, glue, craft paper, etc. She will sit for hours and make crafts! LOL

answers from St. Louis on

scrapbooking, journaling, & any jewelry kit. Nail art kits are fun, as are painting kits.

What about music &/or an instrument?

Camera? & don't forget fun clothes!

I don't have a daughter, but my little cousin who is that age loves those jewlery making kits. You can probably get them for under $20.00 and I'm sure she would have tons of fun creating.

Playmobil - I started my girls when they were 3 and all my neices and nephews by age 4. ALL the kids to come over to my house play with these for hours. This includes my 12 yr old's friends (most of whom are already 13) and my 9 yr olds friends. A total hit for YEARS to come. And easy for everyone else to do - you just tell them "buy playmobil, the zoo/house/fairy collection" and just change which collection each year.

We even do Playmobil advent calendars each year

We got my daughter a scooter when she was 7. It was something she asked for & she loved it. We also got lucky because it was unusually warm that New Year's Eve so she got to ride it outside. She was also really into American Girl at that age.
