Dear Girl Geek: Which is the best netbook for my daughter?

Dear Girl Geek

Please can you give me some advice about netbooks. My daughter is ten and is always nicking my laptop. I thought I might buy her a netbook for xmas. She loves going on sites like stardoll. I know she would want a pink one, and yes I know it is poor to base decisions on colour, but she is a proper girl and that would definitely score 50% of the points with her. I don’t want to spend a massive amount of cash on it as she will probably treat it badly. There seem to be a lot of them out there but for her she just needs to be able to access a full screen of a website and perhaps msn and she also uses it sometimes for her homework research. The reviews don’t seem to focus on these points

many thanks

Compact Mirror Torch

This is neat, it’s a compact mirror and torch in one, so if youre ever stuck somewhere dark and in need of a bit of lip gloss, look no further with this mirror torch combo. Personally, I think it’s just pretty cool to have a torch in your handbag anyway. It comes with 3 uber bright white LEDs, 2 mirrors magnifying (eeek not flattering) and standard (much better) and it comes in pink.  You also get 2 long life Lithium batteries included.


 Available on line at True Utility for £8.99

Friday Frolics – I rub my duckie

Bored with your average rubber ducky ? Well girlies check out the Paris Duck .

It looks so cute with its Swarovski crystal beak and removable marabou boa but quite frankly that isnt the reason why we like it. Simply squeeze its back and all will become clear.  

Dubbed as a personal massager (oh yeh, that old chestnut), it has a powerful yet quiet motor so no tell tale noises coming from the bathroom, just hours of fun with this *quackers* little toy!!

 Retails at  £15
