My wee one is turning six in a couple of weeks, but the wife and I can't figure out what to get her. She pretty much has everything she wants; its not that she is spoiled, its just that she has an older sister so between the two of them,there are plenty of toys and educational and art things around the house.

Help is appreciaited.

I asked my 7 y/o. She suggests an American Girl doll or a baby doll.

My thought was golf clubs.

Your daughters are probably like mine, already have everything they want or need. That's why we buy lots of books and clothes these days.

It was fricken cheap. $150.00 for 2 hours. guy & son show up in 2 trucks & two trailers.
Set up the Merry-go-round in the circle at the top of my street.

The 7 y/o finds this idea amusing.

She also suggests Junie B. Jones books for the 6 y/o.

Do you let her watch movies? My daughters have really been enjoying the Barbie movies lately. Thumbelina, Barbie Mariposa, etc.

Warmer weather is starting to arrive (at least where I am), how about something she can enjoy outside? Burn off some of that spring fever.

Perhaps she would like a nice, new table saw.


Seriously, have your wife take her (just her, not her older sister) to get her nails and toenails done like a big girl. The same day, you can take her (just the two of you) to go shoot cans, go to the zoo, or whatever non-Chuck E. Cheese activity she likes.

That's a terrible idea.

Part of the fun of receiving gifts for a child is the anticiaption of opening the gift and finding out for the first time what they received.

Well then just ask her and then she can open up what she knows she is going to get or don't ask her and she gets something she plays with 15 mins and she's done...

Maybe.

But the moment means more to the child than the gift.

And then get them something else, preferably something they don't want at all. Might as well get them used to life's disappointments at a young age.

Take her to a restaurant on a daddy date where she can make her own pizza. My 18 year old daughter remembers that one to this day and neither one of us could tell you what kind of toy she got that year.

That sounds like a pretty good idea. In terms of toys and dolls, she's got what she wants (grandma likes to spoil the kids). I think between her and her sister, they have like 7 or 8 American girl dolls; my mom even made (handmade) American girl doll furniture so each of our girls have a bed, sofa, lazyboy and ottoman set. We will probably get a lot of art supplies; they have tons of that as well, but art is her favorite activity of all. She will literally spend hours working on her art.

I really appreciate all the ideas and suggestions.

Keep them coming.

We shopped Discovery Toys alot for our four kids--especially when they were younger; they liked more of the stuff we bought....other than, of course, videogame/Wii/XBox stuff, later (we still regret that.)

Camp tent, sleeping bag, LED lantern.

Even if she never goes further than the back yard with it, it can be fun. My daughter is quite proud of her little set. They come in many little girl decor options.

Take her to an art store and let her pick out some things she "needs." Then, do Phobia's suggestion.

When I was six, I wanted Barbies. I she already as a bunch, and more than enough art sets/supplies, then I suggest giving her cash and going to the store. Let her pay the cashier herself. My nephew loved that, because he wasn't used to spending his own money to the point of paying for it himself. If she already has everything, then you have to go with "experiences."

I do really like Phobia's idea. If she's into art, see if your local art museum has any attractions for kids that you could take her to as well.
