My 7-year-old niece is what one might call a “girly girl.” She likes makeup and shoes, and was very disappointed when I didn’t identify pink as my favorite color.
But she looooves sharks. So I want to get her a bad-ass shark-related birthday gift. Any suggestions?
What about one of those remote control helium shark balloons?
Land Shark Lager. Not a great beer, but drinkable. Buy a case, then drink it and put the remote control ballon in the empty box. Just an idea…
Pretty pricey, but my mind leaped to a fossil Megalodon shark tooth.
It’s from the largest shark who ever lived, it’s big enough to be a conversation piece, and no (currently) endangered sharks were sacrificed to produce it.
Accept no substitutes!
Stuffed animal shark. Maybe she already has one, but a 7-year-old can’t have too many stuffed sharks.
Holy cow! Now I want one of those!
In full agreement with this. Sew a pink bow on its head for extra girly-shark points.
Are you close enough to an aquarium to take her to see some real sharks?
How about a book about sharks?
Shark in a pink tutu. Duh!
There is an aquarium trip in the works.
If only there was a shark themed store.
Air Swimmers And seconded – I gave my nephew a shark Air Swimmer last year and he flipped. Great fun!
squishable shark My 7 year old boy has the Narwhal and it is his favorite thing in the whole world. He wants Santa to bring him the Shark this Christmas.
I am not available for relocation.
There are a lot of books for kids about sharks. I was trying to find the book that made me a shark freak when I was a little girl. It was a Scholastic book entitled…wait for it… Sharks. There are a lot of very good books though as I was looking, maybe a good book with shark info?
So happy to see more and more people realizing sharks are awesome!
What I would do in this instance is get a cool shark toy (probably a stuffed animals, they rock)!
And then get a funky pair of girly shoes to go with it.
(I am mother to a 9-year-old who is also a girly-girl when it comes to dressing but is fascinated with how the body works in all its bloody detail.)
