Will you adopt me? I will do dishes, take out the trash, do my homework...oh, and I won't eat you out of house and home! ;) lol

Kidding aside, that would be an awesome gift! Does she play, or is she going to learn?

That is so cool! My God daughter who lives with me and is the closest thing to an actual daughter I have, is turning six in ten days and she has a blue Ukulele under my bed wrapped up in dinosaur paper! She doesn't know she's getting it, but I didn't think to break in the strings for her, I do have new strings to put on it, but I guess I could do that while she's at school after she's opened it!

I bet Santa's gonna be loved by your little girl!

I bought my Grandaughter "Lily"a bright red ukulele last christmas, she took one look at it and said," I prefer your Clearwater" and she's never touched it since although she still wants to play MY Ukes, but as she's only five I can't take the risk. I do let her have a strum now and them when I'm around.....Kids these days!
