YOU might think buying gifts for little girls is as simple as choosing something pretty and pink. But even at an early age daughters, grand-daughters and nieces can be a lot more demanding than that.

So, here are a few suggestions for presents which the pickiest young ladies in your life will love.

High School Musical is all the rage with little girls, reflected in the vast number of related gifts out there.

Among the best is the High School Musical Design ‘n Create Stylin’ Keyboard (from Mega Bloks, £24.99, for ages 6+). It offers great value for money being packed full of arty bits and pieces to keep little girls busy over the hectic Christmas season.

There are gems, foam stickers, glam glitter glue, photos of the High School Musical and much more – the keyboard is even MP3 compatible so they can listen to their favourite HSM songs while they create.

Next is the High School Musical Electronic Microphone Alarm Clock (from Worlds Apart, £19.99, for ages 3+).

This digital alarm clock will not only get them up in the morning but it will also look cool on their bedside table. Plus it has a microphone with voice amplification so girls can practice their lyrics in time for the High School Musical 4 auditions.

High School Musical Singsational Dolls (from Mattel, £16.50, ages 4+) are bound to be in hot demand. Girls can now sing along to their favourite songs from the hit movies with Gabriella, Troy and Sharpay. Each dolls comes with its own microphone and each character sings his or her signature song.

The High School Musical Cheerleader Dress (from Disney Store, £20, ages 3-12) will gets HSM fans noticed with its red and white sequin design.

If it’s not High School Musical that’s getting little girls singing and dancing, then it’s Hannah Montana.

The Hannah Montana Design ‘n Create Rockin’ Guitar (from Mega Bloks, £24.99, for ages 6+) is very similar to the HSM keyboard so you can satisfy both favourites in your house if need be!

Girls will love the flip-open centre compartment crammed full of sparkling gem tattoos, mini photo frames, stickers and more.

When they’re done making things, the Hannah Montana DVD Board Game (from Mattel, £22, for ages 6+) lets girls test their knowledge and try out Hannah’s coolest moves.

If you’re looking for other options, girls will be delighted to play the Disney Fairies Magical Flower Garden Game (Ravensburger, £14.99, for ages 5+). Fairy fans must travel the grassy pathways of Pixie Hollow, across butterfly bridges and up to the magic water pool to collect water droplets to help their magical flower grow.

For young business women of the future, there is Cherry Blossom Stores (£59.99, from ages 3+), the newest addition to Worlds Apart’s multi-award winning Dream Town collection.

It offers hours of entertainment, bringing imaginative role play and a beautifully designed playhouse together under one roof.
