  • It just depends on what she is into. I like to get my dd books, science kits, barbie stuff, american girl stuff, mp3 player, DS,portable DVD player, dvds are a few ideas.

  • My 9 year old loves craft kits - books with supplies and how to instructions. Friendship bracelets, basic knitting, etc.

  • My DD wants a netbook, I saw a new one for only a $100, but her dad says she is too young for it. She only wants it to stream movies and play games.

  • It depends on what your daughter is into.
    If you're going to get a Netbook for videos and games you have to look into one that can support videos and games. Which means a large memory, great memory card, large hard drive, etc. You can't just get just any old netbook (especially) and expect it to perform well with games and videos. Both of those take an extremely large amount of memory and video card quality to perform nicely.

    I personally think an 8 year old is too young for one as well.

  • Choosing gifts based on the individual's preferences always worked for me!
