What would a 9 year old girl want?

There was a really really horrible abuse case in my state that was reported last week. I usually avoid the news as much as possible because it weighs too heavily on my mind. I happened to click on the local news last week. People were asking about sending gifts or donations to the little girl. I believe she will be in DCF, but the police department is accepting gifts for her, no cash and no food. I have no idea about kids that age.

What would you get?

Clothes, clothes, clothes. And shoes, sox, and underwear. Sheesh, she might even need a bra or two.

That's so nice of you to get her a gift. Some ideas clothes, cute socks, art supplies, polly pockets, headbands or other hair items.

art supplies, journalling supplies. Maybe even a small piece of luggage. It's possible she needs a backpack or something to carry around any gifts or whatever that people send her.

clothes are also good, but only if you can find out her size.

Re: What would a 9 year old girl want?

my 9 y/o dd loves Justice stuff, but they are pretty pricey. How about some stuff from Claires? My girls also love that kind of stuff (nail polish, headbands, etc)

Re: What would a 9 year old girl want?

Thanks so much everyone for the ideas! I was thinking some kind of toy or I don't even know what. I guess I didn't have any concrete ideas. I LOVE the backpack idea and will fill it up with some fun stuff. Any ideas re: what kind of backpack? Like with a character on it? Or, would a plain one (Old Navy?) be a better idea?

I wish I knew her size. I will call the PD tomorrow to see if they have any more information in that regard. I do believe I have to drop everything off in person, at the PD, so hoping to get everything together tomorrow.

Natasha - I would totally get her some Justice stuff. Will see what they can tell me tomorrow re: size. I am guessing they won't know, but wouldn't hurt to ask.

Onegratefulmama - You're so sweet! I will pm you.
