    The computer was the best, its not plugged to the internet, but there is alot of enexpnsive educational games for computer, like math blasters, or zoo tycoon... my kids love it.

  • pillow pets were a hit at christmas time, wii games and have not found one they have not liked, a play tent school house from website called tinket tots,oldest got her first jewely box and a big girl necklace and even my middle girl got one. Ages of girls 9 and 7. A purse was a big hit for when shopping has her own purse for things like sunglasses or gum or hard candy.

  • My DD's are all about nail polish, pretty things for their hair, shoes, clothes, purses,etc..... I found that giving them educational toys is usually a bust. They use it for a few days, then it gets tossed to the side. Pillow Pets are something all of my kids love!

  • My daughter will be 8 in August. She loves to read the Magic Tree House book series and there is a new one out called Day of the Cobra I believe. She still likes Webkinz somewhat. She loves to be outside studying bugs so we get her alot of that sort of thing-nets to catch them, books to identify etc. She likes gift cards too. Oh and jewelry and headbands!
