Want vs. Need

Lately we have been talking to Anna about want vs. need.  She of course "needs" everything.  And every time she says "need" for something unnecessary, we correct her.  I'm not sure she really gets the difference.
Anna: Mommy, I really, really NEED that Pinocchio movie...  I really, really NEED that pink Cinderella gown. (etc)
Me: No.  You really don't NEED it.
Anna: Yeah, I WANT it, I don't NEED it.
