Best Gifts And Toys For 6-Year-Old Girls
If you're buying a birthday gift or just a you're-a-great-kid toy for a 6-year old girl, you'll want options that fit her personality. Lucky for you, there's almost too many to choose from, which is exactly why we narrowed down the best options on Amazon (which means fast shipping options for you). At this stage, they want to build (hello LEGO's), ubox stuff (LOL dolls are still a thing), and may even be big into collecting like, um, slime. Or unicorns. Whatever she's into, we've got all the no-fail options that will have you winning any gift-giving event.
A cute twist on the surprise doll trend, new Blume collectibles actually grow out of their "flower pots." Sprinkle water on the top of the plastic pot and watch this doll's sponge-y hair "bloom." Each doll has decorative hair that matches her theme and look, plus accessories and stickers. Also, the flower pot opens up and reveals a playset inside, which is kind of like getting two unboxing hits in one buy.
For The Maker
A slime caddy is kind of a no-brainer if you're completely clueless about what to get a 6-year-old girl. This one comes with three cans of slime mix (just add water and the included glitter, confetti, and surprise figurines). Makers-in-the-making will love coming up with names for their disgusting concoctions which they can write on the included labels meant to be used on the reusable cans.
We know. A backpack doesn't count as a toy exactly but we love the idea of giving a backpack she can use at school or for sleepovers if your kid has too many stuffed animals and lego bits lying around the house. It's got space for a laptop or tablet, padded straps, plenty of pocket storage, and the signature gorilla keychain, which most definitely counts as a toy.
For Unicorn Fans
Fact: Unicorns are the province of quite a few 6-year-old girls. We particularly love this collectible one for its jeweled rhinestone rump and glittery, rainbow mane and we wouldn't be surprised if she'll want to collect everything from German toy company Schleich's fantasy series, Bayala. This mare measures nearly 5 inches tall, and she also makes for great unicorn-themed party decor.
For Budding Beauticians
If you're looking for the "it" gift, this is the winner. The latest L.O.L. dolls feature real hair and come inside a hairspray container (that transforms into a purse, obviously). Unwrap the layers and see if you've got a prom queen, bowling gal, raver, or another of the 12 characters. Plus each doll has a "water surprise" — is she a color change doll? The surprises keep coming.
For LEGO Lovers
Builders gotta build, especially outdoors. This cool camping set includes a realistic RV, a minifigure family (mom, dad, and son), all the tools for a fish fry, a pickup truck, table and chairs, and more. We love the colorful detail of this 344-piece set, especially the star of the show: the caravan trailer.
For Active Types
Kids can't resist these fun can steppers. (Fun fact: In the 70s these were called Romper Stompers.) Braided plastic handles ensure kids have a good grip when they're stomping around five inches taller. Not only are these step cans fun, they promote balance, exercise, and gross motor skills. Best of all, they just might encourage cooped up 6-year-olds to head outside.
The latest interactive "pets" are Skyrocket's furry cat balls! Portable Pomsies have an adjustable tail so they can hang out anywhere — they can be wrapped around wrists or hung off backpacks, for instance.
When you touch Pomsies they react; there are up to 50 different sound responses to petting, cuddling, and tickling motions. The first litter of Pomsies come in various pastel colors and have adorable names (Blossom, Boots, Sherbert, Speckles, Snowball, Patches, and Pinky).
When you press a Pomsies' nose it comes to life thanks to the tester battery that's included (but you'll want to swap this out for a fresh AAA battery so it will work interactively).
The Night Light
You can make a real rainbow in your child's bedroom with this light projector that throws up an amazing visual on the wall using LED lights. Rather than rain and sun, this rainbow just requires four AAA batteries. The auto shut-off feature makes it ideal for use as a night light, and the price makes it a total score.
Lite-Brite is a classic for a reason—it keeps kids busy for hours on end with all of those colorful plastic pegs that glow when plugged into the screen. This modern version comes with templates to create all kinds of designs—a dune buggy, a rainbow unicorn, a boat, and more. Also? A carrying case makes sure those little pegs don't get stuck to your feet in the living room.
