Searching for gifts for kids can be so hard especially with all the different interests. These tried and true gifts cover everything from birthdays, Christmas and everything in between. Some are expensive and big gifts and some are inexpensive and more affordable. These ideas are not from a research site just sharing what my kids, and friends input from their kids on toys our kids can’t live without.
I feel like 4yr old girl’s are such a fun age, and they are really using their imagination to the max. They live in the world of fantasy and pretend play. They are learning how to be little mothers and pick up characteristics at such a young age. I love when my little girl was at this stage because she seemed to love every gift she opened and was excited about it. I feel like kids at this age are really figuring out what they like so buying for them is fairly easy because they want what every other 4 year old is playing with or what they see on commercials. Their Christmas lists are always changing according to whats new and exciting that month.
Best Gift Ideas for a 4 year old Girl!
Dolls & Stuffed Animals
I love watching little girls treat their baby dolls like real life babies. You can never go wrong with a doll for a girl. If you’re up for a little mess the Baby Alive dolls are great in teaching you girl how to properly change a “poopy” diaper. I feel like little girls love to pretend to mom things and taking care of her baby the way mom does is one of them. Barbies are always a good buy for little girls as well. Every little girl seems to use her barbies and babies for a long time. My little girl is 8 years old and still plays with her barbies and babies.

Arts & Crafts
It’s always fun to let your child use their imagination and create a masterpiece. Kinetic Sand is a great gift if you don’t like to deal with messes. Play-doh is a little messier but my kids LOVE playing with it. I just keep all of the supplies in a Tupperware and let them play with it in the kitchen where it’s easier to clean up. I have to tell myself that I need to just let my kids be kids and make messes sometimes.
The fairy garden is my little girl’s favorite gift she ever received. Sometimes I have a love/hate relationship with crafts but theses sets are easy to use and clean up fairly easy as well. My little girls room is always filled with projects and masterpieces she has created.

I love hearing little girl’s giggle and play as they dress up like princess’s or superhero’s. I also love seeing little girls in Princess dresses. It’s so cute to hear your little one dancing and singing at the top of her lungs about being a princess. My little girl also loves wearing her princess dress every time we go to Disney.
Another toy that is used a lot is the tea set. My little girl loves to set up tea parties for her and her friends. If her friends aren’t around she sets up tea parties for all of her stuffed animals. She loves all of her animals so this happens frequently.

I know LEGO’s can be a headache and pain to clean, but kids LOVE them. My kids never get tired of their LEGO’s and they can play for hours and hours. My kids love to build houses and lands with their lego’s. I used to care if they mixed up sets but once I realized they were using so much creativity every time they build something I started just combing the sets and separating them by color.
I also LOVE Picasso Tiles. They are well worth your money and you will never regret buying them. Anybody that plays at our house always plays with those almost the whole time. You will not be disappointed in this purchase and you will find yourself buying these as birthday gifts for others.

At this age I feel like the consumer world pushes leap pads on kids. My personal opinion is they are a bit pricey for the small amount of time kids stay interested in them. Each game cost upwards of $5 and my kids usually only read them once.
I think that spending a bit more on an iPad or a galaxy tab is more worth your money in the long run. There are so many different apps and games to download for free. You can also store and download movies for your travels. I would however recommend buying a case for you device. I think our iPads have been dropped numerous times and I’m so thankful for the case.

Some of these toys are a little more pricey but last for a long time. As far as the bikes go I posted a high quality bike that would last a while and may be able to be passed down through kids and a little more affordable bike still good quality that would be work as well. Riding bikes is one our favorite things to do after school when the weather cools down a bit.
My kids also love going outside with sidewalk chalk or bubbles too. If you have a great big tree this swing would be so fun to have. Our friends have this swing and my kids love going over to their house.
