Christmas gift ideas girls aged 6-7 will love

It's that time of the year again when life catches you up and suddenly you notice it is a week until Christmas - and time to get those last presents! Here is my gift guide for girls aged six to seven, including some of the top toys for 2019, STEM and learning gifts, books, make-up and craft kits that girls this age would typically love to receive. 

Of course, you choose a gift based on the recipient, but from my experience there are a few things that tend to appeal to girls this age. Children's make-up and nail paints and accessories are popular, as they are entering that age they like to try big girl things. STEM kits and craft kits tend to be well-received, and fun things to do over the holidays. Frozen 2 toys are big this year, and generally speaking, baby toys like Baby Annabelle are always popular with this age range. Fairies and all kinds of animals and magical creatures are popular too.

But, without further ado, here are a few recommendations I think any girl aged 6-7 would be lucky to have... and have a look at my previous Christmas gift guides too for more ideas - Christmas gift ideas girls aged 5-6 will love and 9 best Christmas gift ideas for girls aged 4-5!

You can also win a Baby Annabelle doll and her Lunch Time Table accessory at the end of this post!

Top toys of 2019

Baby Annabelle is a great toy to play with for all ages. It is meant for children over the age of 3. It is battery-operated and this years version drinks water from a bottle, and cries real tears. It also sucks on a dummy, and the face moves, which is quite surprising and fun. You can burp it and cuddle it to sleep, and it does little giggles if you tickle its tummy. When you lie it down the eyes close, unlike some of the previous dolls where eyes opened using the battery-powered motor. It also snuffles and snores in a very cute way when it sleeps.

All in all, it is great interactive toy little girls will absolutely love and I think it is well worth the price tag. My daughter has had so much joy from it, she is now wanting to convert part of her room to a Baby Annabelle corner.

Baby Annabelle also comes with plenty of accessories and new this year is the Lunch Time Table Set. We have played with this a lot and it is quite funny to see your kid get frustrated when Baby Annabelle turns her nose up at everything you offer her - just like they used to do as babies ha ha! The Lunch time Table Set is fun to play with, and seems to randomly assign either a good or a bad reaction, and you will have to swap the drinks and the foods until you get a happy response. You can then feed Baby Annabelle who will make happy sounds (the sounds come from the table).

Check out my giveaway for Baby Annabelle and this accessory at the end of this post!


anna singing fashion doll


Frozen 2 toys are BIG this year - every girl seems to want something. The most popular toys will be the Anna and Elsa fashion dolls, which you can also get in light-up or singing versions - ours are the singing versions. Another very popular Frozen 2 toy is the Into the Unknown doll, which is a cuter child-like version of Elsa, and who sings and lights up.


walkie talkie toy


Walkie talkies seem to be a VERY popular gift this year, and often out of stock. I got ours from BrightMinds, who provide a wide variety of learning and creative play toys. Walkie talkies are great fun at this age, as you can use them with your friends or parents. I would say these are great to encourage your kid to go and have an outdoor adventure!


STEM toys and other learning toys

For STEM and learning kits I was introduced to BrightMinds this year - their tag line is "where learning is fun"! And looking through their website, there was lots of fantastic science toys, toys to help learning and fantastic creative play toys. They have a section for new toys for 2019, and lots of science toys too, for all ages.

From BrightMinds I got a Thames & Kosmos Magic of Magnets kit, which will be a great help in learning science and testing how magnets work. The kit teaches you how to build a compass and has games for magnets too. Another learning item I got was an Easyread Time Teaching Wall Clock - it uses colours and phrases to teach kids how to read a clock. I've never seen these before but they look like they would be fantastic learning tools. There are Easyread wristwatches too. 

And while not quite a STEM toy or a learning toy, this Moon Beam Light seemed like a fun addition  to room decor and something that could encourage an interest in space. It is apparently a faithful reproduction of the moon! 

Collectible toys

There are so many collectible toys girls this age love - LOL Surprise dolls seem like they are very popular. This year I have got these little Hatchimal Royal collegtible eggs - you hatch them by rubbing on the egg, and there is a tiny little animal toy inside. In the Snowball edition they are all dressed up in a wintery fashion. 

Sylvanian families were super popular in my childhood and I always wanted to have some, so now I got a Sylvanian family of rabbits for my rabbit-mad daughter. If you visit the pop-up shop in London you can find the limited edition Guardian Bear there. Sylvanian families also do blind bags with babies, which are only £3 and would be great as little stocking fillers!

Make-up and beauty items

Girls this age start to LOVE make-up, but I prefer if it is still child-like at this age. Hair accessories are great too. This year I got her some hair chalk pens, which also came with some hair accessories. This kit should be fun for her to play with. After testing it, it does give a very good colour coverage, even for darker hair. Lip balms and lip glosses are an easy make-up item too, and what would be better than a chocolate flavoured ones! Nail polishes and nail stickers are good fun at this age too! I also included a craft set for a fairy flower crown, right up a little girls streets!

Books

There are so many great books for this age range as they start to get more confident with their reading. For girls that love fairies and everything magical, Magic Fairy books are great! Isadora Moon on the other hand is a half fairy, half vampire and totally unique, and this Isadora Moon Makes Winter Magic should be a fun book to get into over the holidays. 




So here were my tips... but I would love to know your choices for this age bracket?
