Let’s face it, these days it’s extremely hard to find gifts for kids which don’t deal directly with new cell phones or laptops/tablets. There are however, many very cool choices for girls ages 4-11 that make for wonderful gifts which will be used and enjoyed.
1) Hue Animation Studio
The Animation Studio will bring back fond memories of the old clay-mation moves like Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman. The software, the clay, and the bending cameras will help young girls make their own movies, and they will spend hours making something very cool!

Bicycles are all the rage. Some folks in bike-friendly states are actually selling their vehicles and going to riding their bikes full time. Regardless if you get a simple pedal bike or a speed bike, one thing is for certain- girls love bikes and the exercise they get from riding bikes even for fun, is very healthy and sometimes even life-changing.
3) T-Shirts with Likes
The ‘in-thing’ with younger girls is to have ‘I like’ t-shirts. The shirt might say something like ‘Sarah likes soda, clean sheets, gossiping, her iphone and her little brother.’ The more focus a young girl gets, the better. These t-shirts can be made from several different manufacturers and they are very popular with younger girls. You can customize a t-shirt like this at redenvelope.com, and here is a link to show you what the t-shirts look like:
4) Sea Monkeys
If you want a scientific gift, sea monkeys are so much fun. Kids can put seeds into an aquarium and watch the sea monkeys come alive and grow in the water. Another fun thing to do is get a girl a goldfish or ‘aqua farm’ and give them the responsibility of taking care of their very own pet. Feeding and changing the water is a great idea to show your daughter/niece/whomever how to take responsibility for another living creature.
5) Choose Your Own Adventure Books
Choose your own adventure books are very neat, and they can encourage young girls to read. Reading is one of the most essential tools a child of ages 4-9 can master and love, and the choose-your-own-adventure books are an incredible way to get your child reading, as well as having them interact in a book where you can choose your ending or adventure.

6) Roylco Straws and Connectors Building Kits
Roylco Straws are amazing tools for young architects to build buildings, boats, towers, and whatever a young girl wishes to build. They definitely are not just for boys. The possibilities with these straws are endless and little girls learn how to build a project from the ground up. This is unique and interesting, and something that little girls who enjoy building would be a perfect fit for.
7) Reversible Batman and Superman Capes- Pink and Black
Why should all of the boys have the superhero-cape-wearing fun? There are many companies that make beautiful pink capes for girls who like to dawn the symbol of their favorite superhero as well! This makes a great gift for girls ages 7-8 and believe it or not, it enhances a little girl’s self esteem and worth!
