My daughter turns five this month and I'm still not sure what to give to her. Two days ago she asked for a cellphone but it doesn't feel right. If you were me, what would you give to her?
No, cellphone is not a good idea. I would give her a doll or a beautiful dress.
I guess I need to come up with a good reason why she isn't getting a cellphone.
I wouldn't give her a cell phone, but a toy one might be in order?
If she is techy-minded, what about one of those cheap tablets that are on the market now? You could load it up with some free games and that'll keep her amused for hours, and they are low cost enough so that if she drops and breaks it, it won't matter too much.
Dolls and prams are great if she is a girly-girl, but not all are - you'll know what type of thing she likes.
Maybe her first bike with stabilisers? An educational computer game that will teach her to read and write? A play kitchen so that she can cook just like Mum? A junior artist's easel? The choices are endless. Just not a cell phone. Tell her they cause damage to junior ears. I think there is even some truth in that.

My husband recommends a bike with stabilisers because he thinks it would be a good exercise for her but now I'm thinking about getting her a tablet. Hmmm, I wonder what my husband will say...
