What are you getting your 6/7 old girl for Christmas?

This is inspired by the 9/10 girl christmas list thread. I have no idea what to get my daughter. She has asked for a couple of Lego sets and an American Girl doll (even though she has the twins and 1 Just Like You that never get played with). She has soooo many Barbies and only wants 1 Ken. So what is on your daughters list?

Our DD is begging for an iPod, but I think she's realized after playing with my iPhone that it isn't as fun as it seemed at first. I'm hoping she cools down on the idea as it would be almost her only gift if we ended up getting her that!

Much to my chagrin, she's another one that doesn't have a lot of things she wants or asks for. Not that I want her being materialistic, but it really would make Christmas shopping so much easier.

Not sure if you have more than 1 child, but we are doing a family gift this year I think and getting an Xbox with Kinects.

My DD7 has an iPod(my old iPhone) and she would play with it all the time if we would let her.

Other gifts if we don't go the Xbox route could be color books, more art supplies for her easel, a new bike, ice skates, DS games, movies, American Girl accessories/furniture, Barbie house/car...

My soon to be 7 year old has a Nintendo DS and tons of games to go with it. We had also looked into the leap pad for her but it seemed to young for her even last year.

We did end up getting her a Mobigo last year which she played with for a bit but really would rather play with the DS. She has quite a few learning games for the DS and then of corse the fun ones. If she didn't have one, we would be getting the DS again.

I really don't know what my 6 almost 7 year old wants and we will have her birthday and then Christmas....

I do know we will get her lots of arts and craft stuff as she is always making things..... so I am looking for some ideas as well!

I got DD7 an mp3 player that has a camera and plays videos. Probably get a couple of CDs to load as well. She wants another American Girl doll but I don't think that's in the cards this Christmas. Probably get her the Taylor Swift DVD since we went to the concert this year and she loved it. Also got her a scrapbook craft kit from Target. Not going overboard this year since I'm no longer working, have a new baby and need to watch our funds.

For our 7 year old: headband design set, art supplies, pillow pet, American Girl accessories, DS and Wii games.

Her list changes weekly, so I'll hold off shopping until late November.

My DD7 has marshmallows on her list!
Actually, she is getting an American Girl doll and some accessories,and that will be about it. That stuff adds up quick! I think I'll get a bag of marshmallows for her stocking, though.

Like most 7 year olds, my DD changes her list daily.

I am getting her a Nintendo DSi and a few games. She didn't ask for it but she LOVES my nephew's and plays with it whenever she goes over to his house.

She has been asking for these Xia-Xia hermit crab toys. I only saw the commercial once and I have't been able to find them anywhere.

She has a DS, so maybe the Barbie Jet Set Style game and the Monster High game. Crafts are a good idea. We are really trying to buy things she will play with, not something that will be sitting in the toy room with everything else. I also have a almost 4 year old boy...he is easier as far as gifts go (Legos, star wars, Legos, star wars...)

Someone on another thread posted about this and it looks perfect for my DD. It is a DS game and an interactive/robotic dog that goes with it.

I bought one for my 7 year old and he plays with it daily. His 6 year old friend came over and played with my daughters for a long time, she actually wanted to take it with her for her ride home but dd wasn't having it. I think its different enough that it really captivates them. The camera and art studio are timeless and there are games for the 7-9 crowd. I think it has a much wider appeal than the previous leapster.
