DH and I have just been invited to a party for his friend's little girl this Sunday, so 2 days away. I'm always stumped when it comes to birthday gifts for children. Last year we got her a Melissa and Doug puzzle. We'd like to keep it in the $10-12 range. Any ideas?
ETA So far it has been communicated that she's very much into Toy Story (especially Buzz) and horses.
A doll, stroller, art supplies (my dd is 3 and loves to color, cut and glue), books, purse, tea set all would be good choices!

I vote playdoh, maybe some toy story coloring book, and a big box of crayons. My dd got a bucket of 150 craylola crayons for christmas and was very very excited that she now had a dozen different shades of pink to choose from
This sounds AWESOME! The only thing is I can't find it locally. I have to order it online and I don't have time. But I think it would really work, as she has a 4 year old brother who might enjoy playing, too. Hmmm...
Where did you get yours? I looked at Toys R Us and didn't find any EeBoo games.
Thanks so much to everyone for sharing ideas! There are so many good ones in this thread.
i'm able to find eeboo games at a local teacher's supply store. do you have something like that near you or an independent toy store?
since you only have a day and toys r us may be your only option, perhaps you could just go with the toy story idea (since you know it's something she likes). i think the coloring book and crayons (or colored pencils) that someone mentioned is a good idea. i also found this and this and this. and all for $10 and under.
or you could go with the horse theme. i liked the stamp idea someone had. this combines both.
or what about memory? dd loves hers. there's even a toy story version.
dd also loves this game.
i'd have many more suggestions, but i'm looking for things you can find at toys r us.
what about a set of card games? dd got go fish and old maid (the eeboo ones, which are really nice) for x-mas and she loves them.
this is another fun game.
good luck! i'm sure she'll love whatever you end up getting.
