Ten year old girls will one moment show a great deal of maturity and the next it will seem that they are far younger than years. At age 10 they’ve reached a point where their bodies are changing and their emotions seem to be all over themselves. This is an age when girls’ interests become widely varied with some girl’s still wanting to play with dolls occasionally and others wanting to wear makeup and dress older than their age.
With all of this in mind we have chosen premium and highly rated gifts for girls age 10 that will cover a wide range of interests.

Our Criteria for Choosing Toys & Gifts for 10 Year Olds

We look at the educational value of each toy we choose including the toy’s ability to aid the further development of gross and fine motor skills, hand/eye coordination, ability to help the child improve their knowledge and gain new skills.
We also consider the ability of the toy to hold a child’s interest, helping them avoid boredom, and the ability to grow with the child and help them develop long term interests.
