Tis the season!
As someone who reviews toys all year long, this is my FAVORITE time of year since it’s when all my favorite hot toys are about to be gifted to excited children. Everyone always wants to know what my favorite gift ideas are for kids and I are constantly testing out and incorporating new toys into our lives at just about every price range as we create content for ClassyMommy. Yes, Kenzie and Kyle LOVE my job and being my assistants. Lucky kids!
And as a Mom with a little girl, all those crafty and sparkly girl toys have an extra special place in my heart.
Here’s a list of 25 Gift Ideas for Girls this holiday season. These are not listed in any particular order and I’m including a range of price options too. Kenzie just turned 7 last week so this list features many of her top picks and is geared for little girls between the ages of 4-10. Enjoy!
