Things to Consider When you Pick Toys and Gifts for 10 Years Girl

Girls at 10 will rather have common interests such as scripting in their diaries or forming social groups for games and other interactive behaviors. They may also show a heightened level of creativity or sportiness. As such, there are some factors/tips that you should always consider before surprising your little girl with a gift.

2. Her Personality

In general, kids have varying and unique personalities, and so does your ten-year-old girl. These personalities help in defining the kids’ abilities and interests. Some girls at this age may be introverted, while others may be quite extroverted and outgoing. As a parent or guardian, it is your responsibility to understand your growing girl and her personality traits that make her unique and special. With such an understanding, you have a great opportunity to identify and select just the right gifts that will suit her, while positively influencing them, despite the season or occasion.

3. Your Girl’s Learning Style/Approach

Learning is a unique process for every child, and that includes your ten-year-old girl. Learning styles include developing visual, sound, touch, taste, among other cognitive abilities. Discovery of new things/methods/approaches, exploration, and problem-solving are among the top learning styles used by girls around the age of ten especially during their playtime. Therefore, always be keen to learn your young lady’s style of learning to help you pick an appropriate gift that she will also enjoy and embrace.

4. Stages of Development

As your young girl grows, she goes through several stages that have a direct influence on her behavior. Having a connection with your ten-year-old girl will immensely help you understand this dynamic process of grown and development, and it will indeed help you in selecting the right gifts for her.

5. Her Interests

The most perfect gifts are those you buy after pondering carefully as to what your child’s interests really are. Your own interests do not automatically translate into her interests. While kids have been known to develop a liking for toys that they initially had no interest in, it is in the best interest of you and your little girl if you go for gifts that excite her. You do not want a disappointed look on her upon realizing that the gift you got her inspires no interest after spending your hard-earned cash.

6. Family Values

Buying a gift is not just for the sake of it. You must consider the values you have been instilling into your daughter when buying her a gift, otherwise you will be contradicting yourself as a parent. For example, if one of your key family values is promoting physical fitness, you may select a gift that tends to promote physicality such as a basketball or a tennis racket, especially if she has a keen interest on a sport. Go for educational toys if you often stress about the importance of learning and education.

7. The Safety of the Gift

The gift you opt to buy your 10-year-old should not be a safety hazard for your baby. According to your basic judgement, you already know if your child pays attention to gift or toy instructions. This also goes with her personality. Choose a gift idea you are sure that it will not pose any safety risk to your 10-year-old according to her character/personality.
