Toy Guide for Girls Aged 5, 6 and 7
Five minutes after girls start school, they will declare themselves too old for toys. Don’t be fooled. They want permission to play. Use this toy guide to find something your daughter will love.
Craft, construction and creativity
Love or hate the idea of LEGO for girls, there’s no denying the popularity of the Friends range of LEGO sets. Spend anything from £10 to £100 buying pastel coloured bricks, that construct a girl-friendly play scene.
This is around the age that your daughter will be asking for food related toys, like the John Adams Chocolate Coin Maker, and the new Chocolate Lollipop Maker. Before you buy, read the reviews and consider what refills you will need to buy. I am still burned by multiple Christmases without a Frosty Snow Cone Maker, so you may decide that the smile on her face is worth the messy hassle.
If baby dolls are no longer her thing, she may still like the Cabbage Patch and Lalaloopsy dolls because of their quirky styling. Barbie is still going strong, but for something a little different take a look at Moxie Girlz. Novi Stars, Winx Club and Stika Lulu are all new for 2012.
For teeny tiny playsets take a look at the new Playmobil Princess range, Squinkies, Zoobles and Sylvannian Families. Also new for 2012, is the Tatty Teddy range of toys, which includes a lovely fold away house (I always love toys that create their own storage).
Something soft and fluffy
There are so many seriously cute animatronic pets available this year. Look out for deals on last year’s releases: Animagic My Best Friend Benji, Emotion Pets Milky the Bunny, and FurReal Friends Cookie My Playful Pup. New for 2012 are: Emotion Pets Cherry the Cat, FurReal Friends Bouncy My Happy to See Me Pup, and the beautiful FurReal Butterscotch Baby Pony. For something less realistic, but more interactive take a look at the new Furby.
