Great Gifts For Tween Girls (9 to 12 Years Old) – All Price Ranges
Get your tween (ages 9-12) thinking about high school with a 2-story dollhouse based on Monster High (even better if she already has Monster High dolls). If she likes to read, she’ll love Pippi Longstocking, a classic about an outrageous girl with red pigtails. If she’s musically inclined but not ready for a real instrument, try a toy saxophone by Bontempi (can play a full scale). Also on the list this year is a beginner’s microscope for amateur scientists.
Excellent Gift Ideas For Girls Aged 5 to 8 – All Price Ranges
For girls between the ages 5 and 8, you’re going to need something a little more complicated. Introduce her to the world of music with the 25-key starter piano by Schoenhut. Spark a curiosity in science with a kit that allows her to create a volcano, a miniature sunset, crystals, and more! For something the whole family can enjoy, try the silly “what am I?” guessing game HedBanz. For damsels in distress who like to play outside, get her a play tent – built to look like a pink castle, of course.

The best gift for a toddler (ages 2-4) is something to promote brain development while keeping her entertained. Increase her vocabulary and improve her spelling with a set of magnetic letters. Teach her hand-eye coordination with a colorful set of lacing beads. Let her creativity run wild with a doodler (the best part: no paints or crayons!). For a gift the whole family can enjoy, try Spot It!, a game of visual perception and matching.
