Nothing makes a mother or father happier than seeing their little girl grow and flourish into a beautiful young woman. At the age of 9, she knows what she wants, the kinds of gifts or toys, what colors they should come in.

 Through the years buying her all she wants, as parents and guardians we would be tuned in to what she most likely would appreciate, and the onus is on us to get her age-appropriate toys. And with her new age, she needs a couple of things new. 

We understand that getting her the gift or toy of her dreams in a world where there re too many options is not that easy, with many companies and factories producing very similar products, we took it on ourselves to compile a list of the best toys for your 9 year old girl. But before you are ready to raid the store, there are a few things you have to put in mind. And they are as follows:

Considerations choosing gifts for girls aged 9


Age: The most important factor would be your daughter’s age, whatever gift you are buying must factor her mental and physical development. Toymakers usually sort this problem out for you by putting stickers indicating what age range their products are best suited for. If you want to buy a meaningful gift for your daughter, and you want her to have all the fun in the world playing with it, remember to look out for these age stickers.

Size: The size of the toy has to be just right, too big or too small and the gift would not have the anticipated effect. It has to be just right. To ensure you get it just right, you have to factor your daughter’s weight and height, and also how much space she has to play. If she spends most of her time outdoors, you can get her something relatively bigger. But if she spends her time in her room with friends, something small like a cuddle pillow, stuffed animal or tea playset. 

Price: As with anything currently on sale in any market, the price for which it is being sold is a factor that can not be overlooked. When shopping for a toy or gift for your beautiful daughter, it is advised that you shop on a budget. So you do not end up overspending. For whatever budget you have, we assure you that you would find a meaningful gift your beautiful girl would appreciate the same.
