We are going to take a look at some of the Best Toys for 9 Year Old Girls for Xmas 2012. Remember that you can check out our top toys for girls age nine years old from all different years on this page. We wanted to take some time to go over some of what is new this year, however, because there’s a good chance these items are going to be on a lot of wishlists this year.
Nine year old girls are becoming more independent, but they may still like some toys that remind them of simpler times when they were younger. They may not do this consciously, but when you look at the wishlists of girls this age, you’re going to see a lot of similarities and patterns.
With all of that in mind, we present our list of some of the NEW toys for 9 year old girls in 2012. Remember you can also check out the toy and gift ideas for girls age nine years old from all different years on this page.
This Barbie is not really meant to be played with. It is more of a collectible, which might make it a good gift idea for a nine year old girl. The new 2012 Holiday edition Barbie is wearing a red gown with just the right amount of jewelry. While some parents may not like Barbie because of the body-image issue, there’s another way to look at getting this – a financial investment.
Granted, it may take 100 years or more, but someday someone may want to pay more for it than the $40 it is currently priced. This is not for everyone, but it’s new every year and may introduce an enterprising young girl into the world of collecting. However, getting a season of American Pickers (or even Hoarders!) might do better to help this? Okay, moving on… (… or Click Here to Buy)
On the opposite end of the doll spectrum, we have the increasingly popular Monster High collection, which expands in 2012 with new dolls and accessories. Finding the top Monster High Dolls for 2012 is not too hard if you know the 9 year old girl who is getting the gift. (Click here for an in depth look at what’s new for 2012 when it comes to Monster High Dolls.)
Frankie Stein, Clawdeen Wolf, and all the others all have new dolls for 2012 – the Ghouls Rule collection. As we said, these are almost the anti-Barbie in some ways, but there are a lot of nine year old girls who go gaga over them. They are safe for girls age 6 to 12 years old. Older tween and teen girls may just like the collectible factor, however. (Find at Amazon)
Yes, you can apparently take pictures with Barbie and have them show up as designs for her t-shirt on a small LCD screen. We have a full review of the Barbie Photo Fashion Doll, but we wanted to highlight it for a moment on this page as well because it’s made for girls age 6 to 12 years old.
Available for around $50 (cheaper if you look around – probably a lot cheaper next year!), this is one of those things that tries too hard to do too many things. It’s kind of a creepy toy and kind of a crappy camera. Still, some girls may be introduced to photography thanks to the doll, so there’s that… Overall, we would say pass on this, but we wanted to include it in the list of new toys for 9 year old girls in 2012. (Click Here to Buy)
The Crayola Digital Light Designer is currently available for around $50 and is intended for girls (and boys) ages 6 to 15 years old. We do a full review of the Crayola Digital Light Designer here, but we wanted to add it to the list of new toys for nine year old girls in 2012.
One of the cool things about it is that you can save the designs and bring them back at a later date. It is important to point out that you need to always have it on a flat surface or it will not work. (No putting it in your lap curled up in your favorite chair!) Still, it may be something that some children get into. For the really artistic nine year old girls, however, tried and true art supplies may be a better investment in our opinion.
