Top Toys for Girls

November 17, 2014

When choosing top toys for girls this Christmas, it’s worth considering both traditional and some non-traditional gifts too. Disney’s Frozen is top of many lists this year but if you aren’t a fan of Elsa and Anna, or are looking to supplement those gifts, then have a look at some of the alternatives available. Mixing traditional and popular toys can increase their longevity and improve your child’s development so make sure you strike the right balance now for the year ahead. Remember these toys aren’t just for girls either.

Role Play Sets

Good-Toy-Guide_690_Pick-and-Mix-Sweet-Shop2Girls like to pretend and role play with their siblings and friends, often dressing up for the occasion and introducing a new accent too. Role play is such a wonderful way to encourage your girl’s social development and let her explore her creativity. With that in mind either this Post Office Set or Pick & Mix Sweet Shop is perfect and, as both bring maths skills and a knowledge of currency into the game, they will learn life skills through play. A fun way to practise interacting with others, taking turns and an early lesson in customer service!

Traditional Kitchen

When looking at traditional top toys for girls, nothing jumps to mind more than a wooden kitchen and this Wooden Tabletop Kitchen is kithchena beautiful example. A great toy for child-led free play, it will be an educational addition to your home and this is the reason a kitchen is in the top toy lists year on year. Role play is a wonderful way to enhance development so add in a Fruit & Veg Basket and watch as her imagination brings a new world to life.

By doing so, choosing carefully and mixing both new crazes and the more tried and tested toys, you will have a very happy girl on Christmas morning!
