My girl is 4.5 & is really crazy about beading right now. I got her some tri-beads, pony beads and beads that are animal shapes. I'm planning to make some newspaper beads with her this weekend. You can google it for directions. For a gift you could put together a package with beading supplies and some music for her to listen to while she works, or arrange for her to have her own desk well-stocked with supplies. If she's into crafty things I bet that would make her feel very special and grown-up.

My daughter got a barbie house when she turned 4 that she loves! It all depends on what she is into. My daughter is turning 6 in July and SHE just decided to get rid of all of her baby doll stuff - kitchen, crib, stroller and babies!! She only likes to play with barbies now as far as dolls go. There are alot of cute computers out for little girls. Art supplies are always a great thing too.

I have two girls, ages 4 and 6. Here are some things they enjoy...

-hula hoops, sidewalk chalk

-sticker mosaic kits, painting, rubber stamps, craft kits to make cards or pictures (Alex brand has a lot of neat art/craft projects)

-Build-a-Bear stuffed animals w/ clothing and accessories (you could take her to build her own stuffed animal and pick out some things to go with it)

My lil girl is turning 5 next week and I got her a new "big girl" two wheeler pink radio flyer scooter...they are more stable than a razor but "cooler" than a 3 wheel one... I also got her some polly pocket sets and a little "girly" set with lipglosses, hair clips etc.

Oh the joys of a little girl!!!
My daughter is 5 and she is really into crafts... someone gave her a box full of color wonder stuff, 3-d chalk, paper, stickers, glue scissors, glitter, foam art pieces, paint, etc and she loved. You could get her an art little girl loves hers. She also loves games like princess memory, or candy land, don't break the ice, old maid, etc. She loves her polly pockets and my little pony. She is not inot barbies right now. She also loves her CD player and her Kid songs CDs. And ofcourse she loves her leapster and V-tech. She just got out of the dress up clothes stage, but that was fun. Another thing would be a vanity and some play makeup and hair accessories. My daughter also likes her outside toys... girly legos, bubbles, hula hoops, sidewalk chalk, scooter, bike, wagon, etc.
Have fun...

2 of our daughter all time favorite toys were the "Twizzler" and the "Air Pogo".

She also ran around in all types of fancy dress up clothes and shoes.
She would spin on the twizzler for hours in her fancy dresses to "watch them swirl"
