While most eight-year-olds dream of getting a new bike or maybe a doll for their birthday, little Poppy Burge will be getting something more extravagant - £8,000 of vouchers to spend on plastic surgery.
Her surgery-obsessed mother Sarah, known as The Human Barbie, has spent £500,000 on enhancing her own looks and wants Poppy to be just like her.
For Christmas she gave her daughter, whose two front teeth are yet to come through, £7,000 of vouchers for lipsocution.
Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, she said: 'I'm investing in my child's future. It's empowering for her to be able to take charge of the way she wants to look.
'The reality of life is people don't think they look fine as they are.'
Miss Burge first made the headlines in 2010 when she confessed to teaching her then six-year-old daughter to pole dance.
And last year the mother-of-three, who lives in a £500,000 four-bedroom home in St Neots, Cambridgeshire, boasted that she gave a £6,000 breast enlargement voucher to her daughter.
She says she will keep buying Poppy the vouchers for Christmas and birthdays until she is 18 when she will be allowed to spend them.
Poppy's birthday party promises to also be a flamboyant affair.
Wearing a designer dress and diamond encrusted boots, the child will be paraded through her village on a horse and carriage before 100 guests will party in a barn-themed marquee with pink carpet.
There will be an X-Factor style competition in which her friends will have to strut down a catwalk and the world's largest rabbit, which is 4ft long, has also been hired to make an appearance.
Each reveller will take home spray tan vouchers, a signed photo of Poppy and Sarah and luxury chocolates in party bags worth £200 each.
Miss Burge, a former nurse, is more than capable of paying for the lavish parties and gifts thanks to the lucrative business she runs organising plastic surgery and swinging parties and writing erotic novels.
Poppy, who wants to be an actress and regularly jets off to LA for mini-breaks, also works as a model and takes part in beauty pageants.
She said: 'People that don't actually know me say it's weird. But people that do know me say I'm lucky.'
