Finding toys for three year old girls can be difficult for some, but it doesn’t need to be if you prepare. All three year old girls are different, of course, but we have some information that will help you buy the perfect gift for everyone on your shopping list this year.
Here are some things to keep in mind when shopping for toys for a three year old girl.
Production – Where a toy or gift is made can tell you a lot about the quality and the safety requirements that were in place while the toy was produced.
Materials – Unfortunately, it is still necessary to check for lead or lead based paint on some toys. This is especially true for toys imported from other countries. The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission is a great place to start.
Small Pieces – Even at four years old, you want to make sure the toy does NOT have a lot of small pieces that can be swallowed, causing a child to choke. Playing with a child at this age is also recommended.
Age Appropriate – The best bet is to buy toys that are recommended as age appropriate for babies. These days, toys include information about the suggested age range of children.
Educational & Learning Toys
At age three years old, it is a good idea to get toys that can help with numbers, letters, and other pre-school skills. This is a great time for books and games that help with manners as well.
Playsets are great for the imagination and stimulating creative pretend play. Whether it’s stuff from the kitchen or a doctor’s set with stethescope or a tent to play in, a playset can be a great gift for a four year old girl.
