toys for my nieces birthday

Today is my nieces birthday. A few weeks ago I asked my Sister in Law (SIL) what my niece would want for her birthday.  she told me Shopkins.  Something I have never heard of before.  Obviously I hopped online and found out what they are. This is what I found.

So I went off to target to pick up some for her birthday.  I got the toy pictured above.  I then could not bring myself to buy more of them, why i'm not really sure, so I took a chance and picked up these two toys.  

My thoughts being that if she likes miniature food maybe some miniature animals wouldn't be that bad of an idea.  I included a gift receipt just in case.

I also feel like kids need something sort of educational and so I picked up this book for her as well.  

A 5 year old does not need a board book but it was the only copy of the book I thought she would like.  

So how do you handle gifts?  Do you get exactly what is asked or do you try for something else?


  1. My niece was obsessed with Littlest Pet Shops! She still has a ton haha.

    1. I'm hoping that my niece likes them. I think they are adorable for kids.
