Last year’s top Christmas toy for girls age 6 to 8 is back…only better! Some parents felt the Hatchimals weren’t all they were cracked up to be (see what I did there?).
But the CollEggtibles are mini eggs with a mini price and are already huge hits. There’s 70 different ones to collect, so you’re set for gift ideas for a while, plus they come in packs of four, so you’ve got a cute little stocking stuffer or small gift for four girls with one purchase. SCORE!
My Little Pony My Magical Princess Twilight Sparkle
My Little pony: The Movie was released recently and there’s a whole herd of toys to mark the occasion. The interactive Princess Twilight Sparkle will charm the hoofs off any little princess.
She speaks 90 phrases and nuzzles, tells stories, flaps her wings and other enchanting things. If you check it out on Amazon, you’ll see the demo video – it’s pretty cute! This one is sure to be a hit with My Little Pony movie fans!
Barbie Newborn Pups Doll and Pets Playset
The Barbie Newborn Pups playset is particularly darling because momma pup is pregnant with babies and Barbie gets to help deliver and care for them! Good thing Mattel also makes a Barbie pet room playset.
On the topic of Barbies (because it’s one of my favorite toys!), take a look at the Fairytale Barbie below – isn’t she beautiful? Also popular are the Career Barbies. The Farm Vet set is pictured on the left. So cute! There’s a whole bunch of Career Barbie sets to choose from and these are always favorite gifts of little girls who like Barbies!
Mattel DC Super Hero Girls Supergirl Locker and Doll
The little superhero in your life will love the Supergirl Doll and locker set.
Girls can pretend to be Supergirl, whooshing in to school on her skateboard and using her x-ray vision to see the love notes waiting in her locker. Or, in the case of super mean girls – shaving cream. But that’s a whole different high school.
Here’s a couple more DC Super Hero sets that a Super Hero fan would like. You can get the whole set of DC Super Hero girls (pictured on the left) which would inspire all kinds of heroic stories for girls to play out!
And the Super Hero Girls High School set, on the right, was one of the top toys for girls age 6 to 8 last year and is still very popular. It’s a great price too!
My Mini MixieQ’s Camping Playset
Their latest toys for girls this year is a camping themed set and and since I’m partial to anything trailer or camping related, it’s on our list of the top toys for girls.
There’s a large selection of Mini MixieQ’s toys which is great because if the girl on your toy buying list is a fan, you have gift ideas for birthdays and Christmas for a few years.
Here’s a few of the most adorable My mini MixieQ’s sets!
Dance Code Disney Princess Belle
One of the cooler latest toys for girls is the Dance Code Princess Belle. This toy combines arts with smarts. It’s designed to teach girls how coding works by having them choreograph moves for Belle, using an app.
But that’s not all – they can also learn dance moves from Belle (10 different dances) and listen to her speak over 100 phrases. Dance Code Belle was just released on November 1, 2017 and it’s an Amazon Exclusive toy, so you won’t find it anywhere else.
Shopkins Shoppies Dolls (Lucy Smoothie, Daisy Petals and Polli Polish)
Speaking of minis, the tiny Shopkins toys are still super popular toys for girls age 6 to 8, as are their larger friends, the Shoppies Dolls.
Here are two other popular Shopkins toys that are top toys for girls age 6 to 8!
Fingerlings – Interactive Baby Monkey
One of the latest toys for girls, Fingerlings, are THE latest toy craze! Fingerlings are one of the most wanted toys for girls age 6 to 8. What’s not to love about interactive baby monkeys? (Remember falling victim to the Sea-Monkeys scam of the 70’s? Yeah. These aren’t that.)
If you click over to Amazon from our link, watch the video of them in action to fully appreciate their appeal. But don’t monkey around about buying one for the kid on your toy shopping list, because these things are selling FAST! Here’s a selection of Fingerlings so you can find the seller with the lowest current price and I just found these Fingerlings Glitter Monkeys on Amazon too. Glitter! *Insert squeal of delight here*
FurReal Makers Proto Max
Proto Max is the most trainable pup around – literally! Kids can code little Max to run obstacle courses and make a variety of eye and body movements and sounds. And they do it all from an easy to use app.
Proto Max is another Amazon Exclusive and was just released November 1, 2017. It looks like a fun and interactive way for girls and boys to learn how coding makes things work.
LEGO Friends Sunshine Catamaran
LEGO Friends are among the best toys for girls age 6 to 8 who like to build and play with their creations. Their latest toy for girls is this new Catamaran set. It comes with with dolphins, banana boat, Jet Ski and lots of other fun accessories.
You can check out the huge selection of LEGO Friends sets here, in case there are other themed sets that your young builder might like.
Here’s two of the cutest LEGO Friends sets, but there’s so many nice ones. Check them all out in the link above.
Play-Doh Touch Shape to Life Studio
You can scan several creatures and create whole interactive worlds. This is getting great reviews (check ’em out here) and is on its way to being one of the top toys for girls (and boys!) this year.
Zoomer Show Pony
Interactive horses seems to be a theme among the latest toys for girls age 6 to 8. Not only does Zoomer the Show Pony dance, prance and sing, but kids can train her to do tricks and choreograph dances for her by performing certain interactions with her.
And when she’s done, of course, she expects her sugar cube treat. Take a look at the video demo on Amazon of her in action – it’s pretty adorable. I see why it was on several top Christmas toys for girls lists.
DC Wonder Woman Bow-Wielding Doll
This latest toy for girls from Mattel even lets girls fire arrows at their enemies (or their brother’s toys). If you have a Wonder Woman fan on your list, she’ll love the Wonder Woman doll with her bow!
Two other popular female action figures this year are from the new Star Wars movie, Forces of Destiny. Below, you can see two toys inspired by Rey, the heroine of the movie.
Educational Insights GeoSafari Jr. Talking Microscope
With the GeoSafari Talking Microscope, kids get to see the intricacies of natural objects, like snowflakes and tadpoles, all close-up and personal. Plus they learn science and nature facts narrated to them by wildlife enthusiast Bindi Irwin.
This is a great toy to encourage both boys and girls age 6 to 8 (even younger) to get interested in the world around them.
Littlest Pet Shop Cruise Ship
The adorable LPS figures are super popular toys for girls age 6-8 and even a bit older. The latest addition to the little critters’ world is a cruise ship, where they can zipline, sunbathe and walk out of the B-grade entertainment in the showroom to go hit the buffet line again. You know, just like on a real cruise.
Seriously, this little toy has a lot of really cute features and little girls will love taking their LPS collection out on the high seas. This is a really cute toy for girls who love Littlest Pet Shop playsets.
The Pet Jet, pictured on the left is one of the top LPS playsets! And for any Littlest Pet Shop set, you always need extra pets, so check out the set on the right with 15 pets!
That Barbie sure lives in some nice cribs! This year, the Barbie Dreamhouse has gone high-tech with interactive features like an aquarium and a big screen TV!
There’s also an elevator, a swimming pool and a garage that really opens and closes!
The dreamhouse comes fully furnished with over 70 furniture pieces and accessories, so all Barbie has to do is move in! Any girl who plays with Barbies will ADORE this!
For a more abstract home choice, there’s the Barbie Dreamtopia Sweetville Castle, pictured on the left. And for a home on wheels, every Barbie needs her own RV! The Barbie camper and accessories on the right is just TOO cool!
Melissa & Doug Stained Glass Made Easy Kit
The Melissa & Doug Stained Glass Kit lets girls make a beautiful light catcher using stickers. The end result is a unique piece of art that a girl can be proud of.
These are great for kids to make and give as gifts to grandparents or other family members!
There are several lovely designs to choose from in these kits. Below are a couple other cute ones.
L.O.L. Surprise! Big Surprise
The L.O.L. Big Surprise is a huge ball (actually, it’s half a ball – the back is flat) that contains 50 doll surprises!
The 50 pieces include dolls, clothing and accessories, so not all 50 items are dolls.
The Big Surprise is a hot item, so the price fluctuates both on Amazon and with other retailers. If you can find it priced for less than $90, GRAB IT!
Alex Toys My First Sewing Kit
The award-winning My First Sewing Kit teaches girls the basics of sewing with a few simple sewing projects.
Girls will be delighted with these adorable crafts that they made themselves! This is one of the best toys for girls age 6 to 8 who enjoy crafts or want to dabble in the art of sewing.
The whole kit comes in it’s own little carrying case so all the supplies stay together. It’s an excellent price and is getting great reviews too!
