Some great ideas here. We are only blessed with sons and we find it difficult to get inside the minds of nieces and friend’s daughters to choose an appropriate present. I strongly suspect some of the lines in toy stores are aimed at what adults believe young girls want rather than what the actually want.
Debbie P says
These really are great gifts. My nieces will love these for Christmas.
These would make an awesome gift! Makes me wish I had a little girl to buy for.
Oh wow, these are all so adorable! It brings me back to being a kid and wanting a doll house so much! I’m sure a girl would be thrilled to have any of these!
