Durability might be another story, if she wants to knock them around a bit. (in reference to the "i can't break those" comment)
Here's the Head.Fi review: http://www.head-fi.org/t/630565/monster-diamond-tears-review-added-10-6
...that is the problem. it's primarily purpose is a fashion accessory rather than a pair of headphones. you end up paying too much money for the looks/brand, and you don't get the audio performance of cheaper, more audio-focused headphones. a lot of audiophile-focused companies w/ lots of headphone experience are now making their headphones look jazzier d/t the consumer-focus on fashion.
if you're going monster, skullcandy, beats, etc... might as well just get the beats b/c it's the brand-name fashion headphones that all the popular kids in school are into.
you can't let your little girl grow up w/o appreciation for high quality sound, can you?
if you go for the momentums, I think you would have to go for the on-ear versions, b/c they have funner colors! hahaha... i don't think a girl would think brown/silver or black/red is very hip. however, just imagine your daughter rocking this. she'd be the most popular kid in school lol
