It seems when we enter the realm of toys for 6 year old girls, the selection moves a step forward from “little kid” toys into a lineup of choices involving a bit more challenge, creativity and some delightful toys in general.
What’s here: On this page is a “top 10” list of the best toys for girls 6 years of age through the 2017 Christmas season and into 2017. Rankings given for the list are based on holiday tips from toy merchants, general popularity (numbers of sales), also taking overall consumer ratings into account.
For shoppers: For those who are interested in purchasing any of the toys on this list, top online resources have been chosen based on low pricing and having reputations for safe, easy shopping. (Links to reviews have also been provided for each toy, where possible.)
Yep, this is a Build-a-Bear Workshop for home! This set-up comes with a spinning cotton machine, tee-shirts, adoption certificates, and teddy bears with lots of cute accessories. Girlies can build their favorite stuffed bear, then build and share the other with a beloved friend. Includes the signature Build-a-Bear wish hearts.
LEGO Friends is a favorite of mine because the collection captured the interest of girlies who wanted to be builders. This set is an advent calendar with 24 doors, each hiding a holiday-themed collectible. So, basically, there are 24 LEGO Friends gifts for the 24 exciting days leading to Christmas.
Furby Connect is a new version of a tried-and-true original. Consider this your girlie’s new favorite, as each Furby connects to an app for a customizable, interactive experience. These express themselves with color-changing eyes. Since these toys are notorious for waking up randomly, these include sleep masks for nighttime snoozes.
Ice Cream Castles? Talk about a dream come true. But these ice cream swirls, cups, and cones are made from Play-Doh. Which, despite our better judgement, many of us have tasted in our youth. But trust me, this stuff is totally inedible. These ice creams LOOK delicious and scrumptious though.
Lite Brite was a big deal in the 80s and 90s. Then POOF—it disappeared. And now, this awesome toy has returned with a new look and new accessories. There are lots-a detailed templates and over 150 colorful pegs. But kiddos can also freehand their art. Lovin’ this so much!
We can all agree that having a pet dragon sounds like a really awesome idea. Especially if that dragon’s name is Torch and he is an adorable baby critter. Torch belches rainbow-colored mists, wiggles his ears, bats his eyelashes, and makes over 50 unique, quirky sounds. Snuggle him oh-so close!
A new VTech “techie toy” makes it as another favorite pick among toys for girls age six – the Kidizoom Camera Pix.
Camera Pix, courtesy of Kidizoom, is a VTech original, decked out in hippie flowers and adorable pink. There are several modes, but selfie mode and classic are sure to be the two favorites. There are also fun collage templates, filters, and a few apps that let girlies improve their photography.
Meet Crystal Winter—the new addition the Ever After High from her Netflix original movie Epic Winter. Daughter to the frostbitten Snow Queen, this chill beauty is decked out in ice-blue favorites. She carries an icicle wand, dons a gorgeous crown, and comes with a short story about her adventures.
When I was around 6 or 7 years old, I was obsessed with all things glowy and fun. Still am, actually. So, Get Glowing is a super-cool set to me, because kids can make their own glow-in-the-dark stuff. Like bouncy balls, stickers, ceiling stars, and glow sticks. Includes black lights.
