Below is our “Top 10 Gifts for Girls Ages 8 to 10 ” List. All the gifts have been given excellent reviews by online consumers!
1. “My First Sewing Kit” by Alex Toys
Ages: 7 to 12 (although we think it should be 7 to 11 years old)
Price: $15 at Amazon.com (SALE)
Description: This is a super cute sewing kit for girls. Included are 28 “pre-cut” felt shapes, fabric, “stuffing”, 8 colors of embroidery floss, scissors, measuring tape, pins, needles, rick rack, thimble, pin cushion, 6 buttons and pom pom strip. Online consumers are giving this gift great reviews because they say the kit is a really fun way to learn to sew and the projects are easy and easy to follow.
2. Melissa & Doug Suspend Family Game (31 pcs)
Ages: 8 to 15 (up to 4 players)
Price: $14 at Amazon.com
Description: This Melissa & Doug gift idea is typical of their products… awesome! It is basically a balance game. Players place little “rods” on top of one another, making sure they don’t fall. The person who runs out of rods first wins. This is actually a great family game… and people of all ages are playing it (although we wouldn’t let kids too young use it in case they stuck the rods in their mouths).
3. Magnetic Mini Tile Art (4M 4563AM)
Ages: 8 to 15 (although we think it’s more like ages 6 thru 12)
Price: $9 at Amazon.com
Description: This is a super cute gift idea for the price. It comes with 10 2 inch tiles that are magnets. On the one side of the tiles area magnets and the other side is blank. It comes with a “paint strip” and paint brush so girls can paint a design on the back of the strips… and then put them on the refrigerator to display or give them to friends or family members as gifts.
4. Spirograph Deluxe Design Set by Kahootz Toys
Ages: 8 to 15 (although we think more like 7 to 12)
Price: $18 at Amazon.com (SALE)
Description: Spirograph has been around for years… since 1965 to be exact. I remember loving this gift when I was a young girl! This set includes 19 “wheels”, 2 rings, 1 rack, spiro-putty, 3 pens, 14 page instruction book, design paper and a carry-along storage case. What I always thought was so great about Spirograph was that even if you couldn’t draw (like myself), you could draw with Spirograph! Parents are saying the same thing as their kids are loving it!
5. Craft EZ Oven
Ages: 5 to 9
Price: $43 at Amazon.com
Description: The first thing we’d like to note is that this is an “oven” for crafts not for baking. That being said, this is a super cute gift idea. It comes with polymer clay and a crystal creation stained glass project (you can purchase more projects if you want). Girls make their projects (or boys) and then they bake them in the oven. The cool thing about the oven is that it waits until the project is cooled off before the door to the oven will open. Such a great feature!
6. Shrinky Dinks – Crystal Clear Pack – 10 Sheet
Ages: 5 to 15 years (although we think it’s more like 5 to 11)
Price: $6 at Amazon.com
Description: 10 8in x 10in Shiny and clear, transparent sheets and instructions. Note: These are just the sheets. People are using colored pencils, sharpies and washable markers with them (You’d have to buy them separately.)
You just draw something on the sheet… color it… bake it and you’ve got a “shrinky dink”. Kids love these things!
7. Space Hopper Ball – 20 in
Ages: 7 to 9 (although if you have a 10 year old or a tall 9 year old, you can buy the 22″ hopper ball online)
Price: $12 at Amazon.com
Description: This is a “must gift”. When our daughter was little, she spent hours hopping on this thing… inside and outside. We have lots of memories of her giggling away on her hopper ball. This one is 20″ and it holds a maximum weight of 200 pounds. It includes a two-way hand pump. You just take out the white plug from the ball, put the tip of the pump in and inflate the ball. Then, you give to the girl and she bounces on it! It is great fun to get two of them so kids can race each other.
8. Nerf Rebelle Pink Crush Blaster by Nerf
Ages: 8 and up
Price: $21 at Amazon.com
Description: This pink “nerf dart blaster” that includes 4 darts will fire darts up to 75 feet. Since you’re dealing with nerf darts, it can be used inside the house as well as outside. Consumers are saying their daughters and granddaughters love this nerf blaster.
9. “Bop it” Game – 2016 version by Hasbro Games
Ages: 8 and up
Price: $14 at Amazon.com
Description: This game is the new version (2016). It gives kids commands (10 random ones) and then the child needs to follow what it says. Like, it will say “bop it”, and they have to hit the “bop it” sign on the toys… and then it will say something like “pull it” and then they have to pull out the blue part on the game, etc. The game keeps giving commands faster and faster until the child can no longer follow the commands fast enough. This is a game with great reviews!
10. How to Draw People
Ages: 5 to 10 (although, we think it should be more like ages 6 to 12)
Price: $4 at Amazon.com
Description: If you are looking for a super cheap gift for a girl (or boy), this is a great idea. This book teaches kids how to easily draw people. It teaches them how to draw 30 different types of people. For instance, a fireman, a drummer, a mailman, a cowboy, etc. Super great gift idea for a girl that maybe isn’t the best artist but has a desire to draw well!
