73 Inspiring Toy Gifts for Girls

From Disney Ice Queen Dolls to Educational Plush Toys

— December 24, 2015 — Life-Stages
While traditional toy gifts for girls like dolls and dollhouses have gotten a bit of a bad rap, these products get young kids thinking beyond appearances and at issues like technology, sustainability and positive body image.

In place of dolls that are only good for dressing up, there are some great toys like the action figure for girls by GoldieBlox, LEGO's line of female scientist toys and figurines from IAmElemental that show that girls can be superheroes too. To go along with these awesome and inspiring toys are accessories like high-tech dollhouses and Roominate's toys, which encourage young girls to build houses rather than decorate. With Christmas right around the corner, these are toys for girls that will have a lasting and positive impact on development.
