Fave Toy Picks for Younger Girls
Let’s be honest – you will never go wrong gifting dolls for Christmas. Plus, these Cabbage Patch dolls could not be cuter!
I remember growing up with Cabbage Patch dolls. I’m so excited that I can share my love for Cabbage Patch dolls with my own daughter. I love that Cabbage Patch dolls have so many fun options to choose from; exclusive, hand-stitched, cuties, toys, and accessories. Personally, I’m in love with the fantasy and woodland cuties.
Your little one will love role-playing rescue missions with this Hape Emergency Services HQ. This fun playset includes the police and fire brigade headquarters and the vehicles to go with it. Plus, train tracks integrated with the set for even more fun ways to play, and rescue.
The Emergency Services HQ playset includes 55 pieces with roads, rails, vehicles, accessories, and even the rescue professionals! One side of the building is a darling fire station complete with a fire pole. The backside features a police station and jail cell.
- Find the Emergency Services HQ and other adorable rail and playsets at Hape.com.
Girls are wanting Unicorn EVERYTHING this Holiday Season. Antsy Pantsy has all the Unicorn needs to create an imaginary paradise. She’ll love the Unicorn Hoppity as she can ride her very own unicorn! We found it was easy to inflate, soft and super bouncy. You can even deflate it quickly for storage.
All my kids love building forts and with the Unicorn Build Kit, my girls can build a fort for their secret Unicorn Club and also use the unicorn shape in their pretend play. Even bowling is more magical if it is filled with unicorns. Antsy Pantsy’s Unicorn Bowling Set is a perfect add on to either the Unicorn Build Kit or the Unicorn Hoppity for a completely Unicorn themed adventure!
- Check out Antsy Pantsy’s Unicorn Hoppity, Unicorn Build Kit, and Unicorn Bowling online or at Target.
What little one wouldn’t love a color changing night light to help them feel safe and secure at night. The VAVA Rechargeable Night Light transitions through a series of fun bright colors. Then, just tap the top of the lamp when it gets to your favorite color to keep that color selected. Choose from color or a warm white light with an easy toggle switch.
The Night Light’s 1-hour sleep setting will keep their room softly lit as they fall asleep. Plus, with the lowest usage mode, the lamp will last up to 100 hours on a single charge! Letting them take their night light with them on their fun and adventures throughout the day. Choose from a white or wood grain base to fit your decor.
If your kids love the first and second Frozen as much as mine, they will absolutely adore Build-A-Bear Worshop‘s new Frozen II collection. With characters like Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven, these furry friends will make your child’s Christmas magical.
I love how Build-A-Bear allows you to customize every bear to your child’s liking; you can choose to purchase bears and accessories separately or as a gift set. The Elsa Inspired Bear Gift Set and Kristoff Gift Set are to die for. I love the special touches like an Elsa wig, Frozen boots, etc. Such fun and creative bears that make Frozen II come to life.
- Be sure to check out Build-A-Bear’s Frozen II Collection.

Perfect Gifts for Tween Girls
Girls all over are going to be so excited to open a Vendees from Horizon Group this Holiday Season. There is so much fun in opening the interactive packaging. There are 6 fun surprises to find as they unwrap their Vendees dispenser. They’ll find fun surprises like erasers, stickers, keychains and more from the various pull-tabs and compartments surrounding the main activity (paintable ceramics, customizable lip balm, sweet-smelling bath bombs, Wild Nail Art, cool stationery and more).
Or, try the Discovery Break Your Own Geode Set that will bring exploration and fun this season. You can expose Geodes from 3 natural rocks! There is nothing cooler than breaking open a rock (using different methods) and revealing the shimmery crystals inside.
Your girls will be the talk of the neighborhood if they are scooting around on a LaScoota scooter. There are two varieties: for ages 2-8, and for ages 8+. The kids’ scooter has some of the coolest features including light-up wheels and an adjustable/removable seat. The 3-wheel base gives a smooth ride with extra stability, and it is one of the most durable scooters around, so your child enjoys it to the fullest.
Your older child will be unique riding around in the styles of LaScoota. It is not only safe, light-weight, smooth riding (and even has front suspension), but it has eye-catching colors and designs. We LOVED the fact that LaScoota comes completely assembled, with an easy fold/unfold mechanism and even includes a carry strap! My favorite aspect about LaScoota is it is a scooter your child will not grow out of-even into adulthood!
- She’ll love receiving a LaScoota scooter this year!
My girls fell in love with the smart robot Novie from Spin Masters Toys. It’s ready to play right out of the box! They loved being able to teach their Novie 12 different tricks and watch it perform 75 actions. You can even control your Novie with hand gestures (14 different ones), it gets even better with practice.
Spin Masters Hatchimals are always a favorite during the Holiday Season. This year the Hatchimals WOW! is a rehatchable egg that happens to be the LARGEST Hatchimals egg ever! You can hatch it in only 5 minutes and hatch it again and again, and each time she wakes up, she’ll be in 1 of 10 surprise moods! And, who doesn’t love GIFs? Now you can draw, color and customize your own GIF and bring it to life with the Gifeez Spinner from Spin Masters. Once you have a finished disk on the spinner, dim the lights and watch as your art spins to life!
LeapFrog’s new game RockIt Twist is a must-have this holiday season. There are four sides of buttons, spinners, sliders and switches that will have your children hopping with new exciting video games. Your child won’t even realize that they’re learning literacy, math, problem solving and science, they’ll just be having creative fun as they play one of the pre-loaded games. They can play with the cutest digital pets and nurture them to grow.
If you want additional play, you can add on Game Packs like Banzai Beans Showdown where you have to help the Banzai Beans ninjas defeat shiitake shelf and his mushroom minions by navigating mazes, battling through visual memory and perception skills. This Game Pack also includes a new virtual pet and includes a cute figurine to match. Hours of creative and fun learning with RockIt Twist and extra Game Packs.

Your girls can stay in constant communication through all of their adventure play with the KidiGo Walkie Talkies from VTech. These two-way radios use a digital connection that keeps their conversations secure and clear so you won’t have other walkie-talkie users listening in or chatting with them. I’ve caught my girls using the KidiGo Walkie Talkies to raid the pantry and take the spoils out to their fort outside-there’s quite a long range (up to 500 feet) between the walkie talkies.
For even more communication, they can send each other messages from the preset animated messages using the screen. There is also endless hours of fun with the four two-player games for real-time gaming activities between the two devices. KidoGo Walkie Talkies bring fun technology into your child’s creative play.
