This list is PACKED with TOY ideas for your 3 year old girl. Searching for the right toy to give to your little one for their birthday or Christmas can be time consuming and frustrating with all their different interests. These tried and true gifts cover everything from expensive to inexpensive to fit everyone’s needs. These ideas come from a group of moms and lots of kids between all of us.
I truly think that 3 is such a fun age for little girls. They are starting to use their imagination with play and learning to share with others. I know my little one lives in a world of princess and pretend play.
The BEST Toy Ideas for 3 Year Old Girls
This age is also fun because they get excited each time they open a gift or receive a new toy. I feel like 3 year olds are still figuring out exactly what they want so it’s fun trying to figure out what they love.
Best Baby Dolls/Animals
Little girls are always mimicking what moms do and it’s so cute to see them with their own baby dolls. They have that natural mothering instinct. You can never go wrong with a doll of any kind for a little girl. I also love to have accessories for them to pretend with as well.

Best Pretend Play Toys
I love when little girls dress up and play like they are a princess. My little girl loves to wear princess dresses and she wears them every time we go to Disney. Another fun thing with pretend play is tea sets, play kitchens and anything to do with housework. Kids like to replicate what they see adults doing.
