We always hear the terms ‘terrible two and teen trouble’ when it comes to childhood and adolescence, but we seldom hear ‘tween in between’.

It’s a phase when a youngster is no longer a little girl, but she’s obviously not a teenager just yet, and there are probably some physical and emotional changes that’s developing on her, and it’s a crucial stage, to say the least.

We won’t be talking about psychosocial development here, because it’s a broad topic and it’s never our forte. But what we are here for is to give you some tips and tricks when it comes to gifting ten year old girls.

Since there are changes, there can be challenges from minute details to the most complicated ones, and gifts can be a part of the challenge if you don’t know what they want. Bear in mind that these growing kids expect different kinds of toys than the younger ones. They would sometimes prefer creativity and adventure more than just a fluffy toy or a doll.

The best way to know them more is to familiarize yourself to the things that interest and cultivate them. Here, we summed up a few gift suggestions to girls who are turning terrific 10!

See reviews and pricing on Wicked Uncle

The ultimate bike accessory for young girls, this mini hornit is durable and waterproof with 25 different sounds. A desirable gift for our little sweethearts to make bike riding extra fun!

So those were the top gift ideas that we handpicked, to be honest, it’s not that hard to give presents to young girls compared to young adults or adults because most of them are really specific with what they want, and by specific we mean, expensive!

What we noticed, however, young girls prefer interactive games and clean fun. You can’t just give them a toy and expect them to run in the corner and do it by themselves, they want to share it with their friends or family, and it’s actually a great way for them to open up and be expressive.

If among these suggestions, you end up still looking for the perfect present, then you may consider giving them gift certificates or coupons so they can choose what they really want. But because we are old school and a little bit sentimental, we still rely on the saying, “It’s the thought that counts!”

But if you think that we are lacking, then tell us on the comments section and we would gladly read them one by one!
