What would you buy for a 3yr old girl?

My husband's Goddaughter is turning 3 this weekend. He asked me to go pick up a birthday present for her... however, I grew up around boys, have only brothers and have 2 godsons!
I haven't the slightest clue what to get for this little girl... I dont want to buy her barbies or any of that Bratz junk.
I may have a daughter of my own, but she's only a month old (1 mo today actually) but I don't have to worry about buying her anything girl specific for quite some time.

What idea's do you all have for a 3 yr old girl?

  • My dd loves any type of dress up stuff....she also has a light up teddy bear that she loves, called a Glo Bear...they have them at Walmart....you squeeze them and they glow....cute

    Movies are also a good thing,

    What about a gift certificate to see a new movie! Thats a different idea!

  • My daughter is about that age and loves princess stuff and dressup (the sparklier the better). They have some cute costumes out there- she is really getting into that (and my niece LOVED it at that age). They are also just getting into the pretend play so tea sets and play food is a good bet. I soo agree with the Bratz stuff- will never buy my DDs that stuff.

  • I second the dress up clothes! My daughter loves playing dress up and at 3 they are able to somewhat dress themselves!

  • Well, my 3yo is into Barbies. That's what she got for Christmas (she was 2 1/2). For her 3rd birthday she picked out some furniture for her doll house and some Littlest Pet Shop toys. But she's pretty mature for her age and has been playing with toys that say 3+ since she was 2.
    Always a hit with her: coloring books, books of any kind and building blocks (she has those duplo sized ones and wooden ones but also loves regular legos).
