A woman who gave her daughter a boob job voucher for her sixth birthday is to start holding children’s parties in a Botox clinic.

Sarah Burge, who is known as the ‘human Barbie’, will organise pageant parties for young girls in the salon where the injections and breast enhancement procedures are performed.

The 51-year-old plastic surgery addict said that girls as young as seven will be given spray tans and hair extensions as part of the makeovers at the clinic with ‘kids rolling up in their limos for beauty pageants and parties’.

Mrs Burge said that the makeovers would be designed to give young girls the ‘wow factor’.

‘I think the demand in this country is huge for young people’s makeover,’ she said. ‘I’m not talking about just a little bit of nails, I’m talking about spray tanning to the nail art to the big hair, like the real beauty pageants.’

She plans to hold the parties mostly for girls between the ages of eight to 13, but said that she would also allow seven-year-olds to have the makeovers.

It is expected that the parties will
be modelled on the 12,000 ‘exotic pamper party’ the surgery-obsessed
mother organised to mark her own daughter’s sixth birthday.

Her daughter Poppy and seven friends had manicures, pedicures and makeovers.

They dressed up with fake tattoos, drank pretend champagne in the back of a pink pamper bus and ate a designer cake costing 250.

Poppy wore a 300 dress for the party, with nail varnish, eyeshadow and hair extensions.

Mrs Burge, who has spent 500,000 on surgery herself, said her daughter was not interested in bouncy castles or pass the parcel so she splashed out on ‘something a little more grown-up’.

‘Girls don’t want Snow White and Cinderella anymore,’ she said last year.

‘They want to be WAGs and famous like
Cheryl Cole and Lady Gaga… Looks are a big part of how our futures pan
out – there shouldn’t be a stigma around wanting to look good.’ But last
night Mrs

Burge’s
plans were described as ‘disturbing’ by critics who said they formed
part of a worrying trend of the sexualisation of childhood.

Mrs Burge laughed off concerns saying: ‘I couldn’t care less about critics. At the end of the day are we promoting being ugly and not caring about ourselves in this country

‘Or are we encouraging children to take control of the way they look and be creative because after all if you don’t encourage them in their creative ways and show them how to do their hair and make up then they’re going to look minging when they’re older because they’re not going to know how to do it.

‘I laugh in the face of the protests of
these people, have they not got anything better to do’ Mrs Burge is
currently looking for investment in the clinic, which she says will be
‘quirky’ and ‘unique’.

She told potential backers on an
investment forum that ‘kids makeovers’ will ‘play a big part’ in the
clinic, which she is considering making the subject of an ‘entertainment
reality show’.

Mrs Burge, who has admitted to teaching her daughter to pole dance aged six and giving another botox injections aged 15, describes herself on the forum as ‘upper class’.

The mother-of-three, who holds the record for having had the most procedures carried out one woman, lives in a 500,000 four-bedroom house in St Neots, Cambridgeshire with her third husband.
She celebrated her 51st birthday with 51,000 of surgery including a facelift, bottom implants and liposuction.

Chidren’s charities last night told parents that refusing to pay for the parties would help stop children being targeted at such a young age.

Claude Knights, director of children’s charity Kidscape, said: ‘At a time when there is justifiable concern about the commercialisation and sexualisation of childhood it is disturbing to hear about the proposals.

‘The message that they send out is very regrettable as it encourages a focus on outward appearance and neglects the development of the whole person.

‘Encouraging young people to look their best is important in this very visual world, but this must be in the context of also developing skills and qualities, which will endure throughout life.

‘It must be remembered that children are unable to give informed consent to some of the ideas projected onto them by parents and other adults’.

A spokeswoman for the Mothers’ Union said: ‘As with any product or service aimed at children, parents need to think carefully about whether or not they feel it is appropriate.

‘Ultimately children will learn from, and be influenced by the choices their parents make. If parents don’t book these parties for their daughters, ultimately beauty companies will stop targeting the child market.’
