Anyone know where I can find a cheap Doll for a 3 year old girl?

Topic.
It's my niece's 3rd birthday next week, I want to buy her a little Doll or something but I'm under orders from my Brother (her Dad) to not spend a fortune, I've had a look on Amazon and eBay but the nice ones are expensive.
Might pop down to the new TJ Hughes in Town tomorrow and check out their toy department, I know where it is now, it's where Woolworths used to be on the Moor in Sheffield City Centre.
But while I'm looking round, does anyone know anywhere that's cheap? I have a budget of around a tenner or less ideally.

Local Charity Shops, sometimes have some nice ones...  worth a look...
also look in the "replacement" woolworths type shops, Poundstretcher, etc... usually have some good looking cheap toys in there.

How about (being inclusive) some good secondhand Action Man figures from eBay?

On a more serious note, grab something from a respected shop such as Toys'r'us or similar. You don't want to buy something that is potentially dangerous or wrongly safety marked from China for a three year old.
Have you considered buying her a book or something similar that you can read to her ? My sisters kids love being read to.

Ignore the orders and buy one with a seriously annoying repertoire of pre-recorded messages.

Been up there before, long trek on the Tram, not sure if I can be bothered to spend an hour on the Tram to get there.
Oh well, might go to Meadowhall after dinner and look, or to Town to Cole's.
