Gifts for Girls Buying Guide

Buying gifts  for anyone can get tricky, and little girls are no exception.  With so many toys on the market, it's hard to tell which ones are going to be long-lasting, entertaining and age appropriate.   But there's hope.  You don't have to go blindly wandering into the local toy  shop or spend hours surfing the web for the perfect gift.  All it takes is a little categorization before you hit the shelves  or click the mouse . 

Classify Your Girl

Okay, we know that no person can fit into a single descriptive mold.  We're not asking for that.  Instead, ask yourself a few simple questions.

  • How old is she? Some toys are better suited for an older crowd and vice versa.
  • Do you want an educational toy, an electronic toy, a recreational/outdoor toy or something else? The more you know about your gift recipient the easier it is to answer this question--cater to her interests.
  • Are toys the only gift option? What about clothing, jewellery, shoes or things for dress up play?  Supplies for arts and crafts projects?
  • What is her favourite colour? If you're unsure, pink is usually a safe alternative. A touch of sparkles never hurts either!
