Our Criteria for Choosing The Perfect Toys & Gifts for a 7 Year Old Girl
When choosing each of the gifts on this list we use two criteria in determining which toys are best for young girls of this age. The criteria we use are:
The first thing we look at is the educational value of each toy we select including the toy’s ability to aid in the physical, mental, emotional or social growth of the child. We look at how a toy may help a child develop their fine and gross motor skills, help them develop logical thinking and problem solving skills, aid in the development of their self-esteem and help them learn socialization skills.
We also look at the entertainment value of each toy including the toy’s ability to hold the child’s interest, whether the toy will grow with the child providing them entertainment for a longer term, and that elusive fun factor that is hard to define.
