Hottest Christmas Toys for Young Girls

5 Popular Young Girl Toys for the Holiday Season


Little girl with doll Christmas is quickly approaching, and if you're like me, the most important part of your shopping list covers the children in your life. Early in September, the 'Big Three' of consumer sales, Wal-Mart, Toys R' Us, and K-Mart came out with their hot toys lists and Fab 15s. Boys have their own hottest toys choices, but below you will find the projected top 5 hottest toys for the gift-giving season for girls between 6 and 8. Finding these gifts under the tree will guarantee a joyous Christmas morning.

Shimmer N' Sparkle Cra-Z-Loom Rubber Band Bracelet Maker
  Unless you've been living under a rock, you've already seen these wonderfully colorful fashion accessories. These are so popular, many stores sold out of their first shipment within days of receiving them, prompting back-orders and waiting lists that took the manufacturer by surprise. For around $15, this craft toy will keep your budding artists busy for hours at a time.

Flutterbye Fairy Pink Flying Flower Fairies
This battery powered toy will provide hours of imaginative play for your special young someone. The dolls actually hover like real fairies providing a wonderful opportunity for their new friends to explore creativity and rich fantasy play. Expect to find these toys in the $25-$30 range.

Nerf Rebelle Heartbreaker Phoenix Bow Blaster
This one seems like it's out of left field, as the Nerf Rebelle Heartbreaker Phoenix Bow is a toy weapon marketed toward girls, but make no mistake - with the success of The Hunger Games, and Disney's Brave, little girls are going to be pretending to be their favorite heroine for years to come after unwrapping this pink and purple gem on Christmas morning. This toy is a great bargain, coming in at around $15.

Furby Boom Figure with Multiple Patterns
Yes, the adorable, electronic friend is back, this time with the capability to learn directly from its owner. The more interaction the Furby receives, the more English it can speak, and the way your child interacts with their new pet actually shapes its developing personality. This toy is so hot, store shelves began running dry in late September. The new Furby toys are priced between $50-$60 each.

Barbie Dreamhouse
  Topping the must-have list is this exquisitely constructed Barbie mansion complete with 3-stories of fun, a working elevator, and an ultimate closet for all the clothes storage Barbie needs. Expect to find this play set prices at around $150.

As a note, all of the stores listed are offering layaway this season. Be sure to take advantage of this program even if you are not cash strapped as a way to ensure you have the right toy for that child in your life without having to hide it at home until Christmas morning. Have fun this holiday season!
