  • Do you remember those little boom-box type toys with the micraphone attached to it ( like the one in toy story) That would be wonderful for her and appropriate for her age. She can carry it around with her and sing all day long. Im not sure if they still make them but its worth checking it out. If not I'd try and find a product similar to that one which wont cost you so much and if it happens to get broken it won't be that big of a deal. Good Luck!!!

  • How about a big tub of assorted craft materials? Glue, pipecleaners, feathers, popsicle sticks, paper, etc You can get them at walmart usualy. Or, Aquasand, moon dough, moonsand. You could get her one of those dance mats, that have a video that plays music and teach how to dance....I'm not sure I"ve seen a karaoke machine for kids(would she have to be able to read?)

  • Hobby stores have so many great things for crafting. I personally love making jewelry and have found so many great things (for all ages) at Hobby Lobby. Getting her a container for holding beads and wire and charms would be a cool idea if you think she might like to make jewelry!

  • Karaoke machines are not that expensive you can get one at Walmart for around $40-$50
