Nooooooooo ... that was her No.1 gift request .... I am not all that pet friendly ... I keep myself a safe distance from them. (*shhhhh ... I am scared*)

Area of interest?

Trampoline ( http://www.amazon.com/Airzone-38-Inch-Mini-Band-Trampoline/dp/B000067Q0P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1279030400&sr=8-1 )

Games ( http://www.woodenhorsetoys.com/cgi-bin/item/244-SDKS/search/Family-Pastimes--The-Secret-Door---A-Cooperative-Game )

Games, the board version, not the electronic app. We have this and is endless hours of fun for teh whole family- ( http://www.puzzles.com/products/rushhour.htm )

DIY Scarf( http://www.woodenhorsetoys.com/cgi-bin/item/683-650/search/Harrisville-Knot-Your-Scarf )

DIY Quit( http://www.woodenhorsetoys.com/cgi-bin/item/AP1-383W/search/Alex-Toys-Knot-a-Quilt )

Blocks/Legos ( http://www.woodenhorsetoys.com/cgi-bin/item/1184-JR30/search/Infinitoy-Zoob-Jr.-30-Piece-Set )

The idea is mosaic sticker art, and the link is an example. They have a lot of varieties and DIY in mosaic stickers ( http://www.woodenhorsetoys.com/cgi-bin/item/134-1571/search/Creativity-for-Kids-Mosaic-Jewelry-Box )

I am anti-Toys R Us. Now you know my favorite toy shop in the Bay area :)

Jo-Ann's Fabrics also has a very decent collection of DIY art kits for the 5+ age group.

Well, what's her interest? And what will she use/enjoy for a longer time if you're buying her expensive stuff?

Loving the suggestions!

@Boo: I was looking for some lovely ideas from you ... :((

@d: We already have the bookshelf with books and easel ... I need to donate some books before I can make room for new ones. Scrapbook is a good idea... music player, not sure how long it will remain alive :)

@Swaru: Waiting for your ideas ... 6 ... I still remember July 6th, 2004 9:42am when she was born :)

@Utbt: Ah ... finally I see your comment ... made my day.
If you hadn't commented, I'd have mailed you :) I knew you would have some lovely ideas. I'll check out this store.
I kind of felt limited too, with Toysrus ... had very minimal options.

@Starry: She loves Art / craft ... I am looking for something to help improve her focus / concentration disguised in craft :)
Oh yes ... she loves girly stuff like nail polish, pretend play dressing up ... but I am not so much of the girly kind ... so need lot of help in selecion here.
