Christmas is a magical time in the eyes of a child. Although it seems like Christmas wasn't long ago to you, your daughter has been counting down the days -- probably since the day after Christmas! Round out her wish list with a few of the best toys on the market to help her learn, stretch her imagination and provide her with year-round enjoyment.
Little girls enjoy playing pretend. Yours might like a baby doll with accessories such as a crib, high chair, diapers and a stroller. If your daughter enjoys playing with Barbie dolls, buy her some extra accessories such as a car to drive around and clothing, or try Barbie's Glam Vacation House. This dollhouse has all the amenities that Barbie needs for a fun-filled afternoon. Purchase the Disney Deluxe Dress Up Trunk for your little princess and add some kid-friendly makeup or nail polish for a glamorous gift. Your little chef may enjoy the Easy Bake Oven or a play kitchen.
Purchase supplies that will allow your crafty, artistic daughter's creativity to flow. Crayola's Color Wonder Sound Studio will provide her with hours of colorful enjoyment without the chance of a mess, and the Disney Evergreen Princess pack will make this gift fit for your princess. The Melissa and Doug Deluxe Standing Easel will make your daughter feel like a real artist. Other little girls will enjoy a scrapbooking or jewelry-making kit to show off their artistic skills. The Alex Silkscreen Factory will let your little girl decorate clothing, purses and other fabrics.
Let your little clothing designer go crazy designing clothes and building fashion shows with Mattel's Barbie iDesign Ultimate Stylist game. The LeapFrog Leapster Explorer, Leapster 2 or V-Tech video game system will help your child learn while she enjoys playing games with her favorite cartoon characters. Be sure to pick up a couple of games for the system, and don't forget the batteries!
Reading will help your daughter develop language skills, improve vocabulary and stretch her imagination. Purchase some classic, enjoyable books for your child such as "Ramona Quimby, Age 8" by Beverly Cleary, "Charlotte's Web" by E. B. White or "Three Cheers for Catherine the Great!" by Cari Best. If your 7-year-old is struggling with reading, pick up the Tag Reading System by LeapFrog. This pen-shaped device works with Tag books to improve your child's reading skills. She may also enjoy a journal to write her own stories and experiences.
