Hatchimals MysteryNope, the Hatchimals craze is NOT over. This year, the top Christmas toy for girls age 6 to 8 is back. But if you were one of the parents who thought Hatchimals weren’t all they were cracked up to be, you might change your mind about the Hatchimals Mystery toy.
Here’s what makes the 2018 Hatchimals craze even better than before:
- Fluffier fur more conducive to cuddling
- Expandable wings
- They’ll learn to say your child’s name
There’s 4 different, darling creatures and the hatching process is even more exciting since you don’t know which one it will be. Hence, the mystery. 😉
Hatchimals Mystery is one of the hottest new toys for girls in 2018!
Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Season 4
These 2018 Family Choice Award Winners are mini eggs with a mini price.
CollEGGtibles are cute little critters that kids LOVE to hatch and collect. The bottom shell becomes a “nest” and display spot for the hatchling.
There’s 80 different ones to collect in Series 4 alone, 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!
Twisty Petz are Top Christmas Toys for Girls
Girls can twist these charming animal jewels into bracelets or backpack charms and create a colorful look all their own.
These 3-packs of Petz include two known and one mystery Petz. They come in everything from subdued pastels to glitzy gold so girls can have a variety of looks.
The one shown is Marigold Unicorn and Popsicle puppy, but in the link you’ll see four other combinations of Petz. This top toy for girls is sure to be a hit this Christmas!
A Brand New Toy for Girls is The Barbie Care Clinic
Barbie Care Clinic VehicleThe latest toys for girls always include the newest Barbies, since they are such popular toys for girls in the age 6 to 8 bracket. And now, when Barbie sprains her ankle from partying a little too hearty in the Dream House, she can just hobble on over to her neighborhood Barbie Care Clinic and get all fixed up!
This thing is a cross between an ambulance and a Quick Care, with it’s working lights and siren and waiting room stocked with the latest Barbie fashion magazines.
Seriously…Mattel put all kinds of cute details in this set, right down to flowers in the gift shop and an adjustable gurney with storage.
It’s wide open for lots of imaginative play! It doesn’t come with a Barbie doll (most of these sets don’t) but you can always get the Barbie Baby Doctor Playset to go with it.
On the topic of Barbies (because it’s one of my favorite toys!), below are a few of the newly released 2018 Barbies that the 6 and 7-year-old girl on your list will love! Barbies are always among the best Christmas toys for girls.
Barbie Bakery Chef features cupcakes that really “rise” and cool frosting effects.
Barbie TV News Team includes a reporter and a camerawoman – TWO Barbies in the set!
Barbie Skipper Babysitter and Stroller is just one set of a whole new line of Skipper Babysitter toys that are so cute!
Barbie Newborn Pups is actually a release from last year, but is so darn cute and popular, I had to include it on our list of top toys for girls age 6 to 8 in 2018.
The Barbie Confetti Skirt Studio and Color-in Fashions are two new products featuring Crayola. Girls can express their creativity and design their own Barbie clothes with these sets and both sets DO come with a Barbie Doll to model the unique fashions!
Mattel DC Super Hero Dolls
Although Barbie can do just about anything, she hasn’t evolved into a true super hero yet. For girls who like a little more action and adventure, I love the DC Super Hero dolls, based on the popular Super Hero High kid’s cartoon.
Mattel releases new dolls to their Super Hero line each year, to inspire all kids of heroic stories for girls to play out.
All of the 12-inch Mattel DC Super Hero Doll feature lots of pretty details and in true comic book character style, are fully poseable. They are nice collectibles, as well as top toys for girls in the 6 to 10 age group.
Ozobot Bit Coding Robot
Kids start out using markers on paper to color code instructions for their Bot. They set the Ozobot on the paper and it follows the path of the code and performs each command. Here’s a few highlights of this clever little coding toy:
- Includes reusable stickers for fun customizations
- Printable games are available on the Ozobot website
- Interactive games available on a tablet
- Easy instructions for kids to learn quickly
- Small but durable
If there are siblings in the family, you may want to get additional Bots so the kids can have fun Bot competitions. Educators, parents and kids are giving the Ozobot rave reviews as one of the best coding toys for girls and boys.
Pomsies PatchesPomsies were just released at the 2018 Toy Fair and are already top sellers. This is one of those hot Christmas toys that will sell out fast, so if it’s on your list, be sure and grab one while they are still available!
These soft, furry interactive pets have flexible tails that wrap around wrists, ankles, backpacks and anywhere else girls want to carry them.
Their eyes change color to signify their needs and they will warble, purr, and sing their way into the hearts of the girls on your Christmas shopping list!
Shopkins Lil Secrets Shoppies
Shopkins Lil’ Secrets Shoppies Marsha MelloThe Shopkins teeny-tiny toys have been popular toys for girls age 6 to 8 ever since their release a few years ago.
This year, their Shoppies dolls have some teeny-tiny toys of their own and they are too flippin’ cute!
The Lil Secrets Shoppies each come with a purse that opens up to reveal a little world all their own, complete with a teeny mini-me. The worlds are all sweet-shop themed, of course. Marsha Mello’s world is a miniscule donut shop. The tiny world comes with a chord so girls can wear it like a necklace (a donut shop around my neck? Yes, please!).
These are really adorable for the price and top toys for girls’ Christmas lists this year!
Last year’s hit toy for girls (and boys!) were Fingerlings, those cute, clingy, interactive baby monkeys.
This year they are STILL one of the most wanted toys for girls age 6 to 8, only now there’s a few even cuter variations of them.
Glitter Monkey Kiki, Baby Unicorn Gigi and the Monkey & Mini BFFs all interact in pretty much the same way as the original Fingerlings. There are different color variations for each of these, so check that out in the links.
The Untamed Raptor has some fun additional reactions, like hissing, growling and farting and were most likely designed with boys in mind. But girls like dinos too, right? Who knows, maybe hanging out with serene little Gigi will tame that raptor!
Last year, the best Fingerlings sold out fast (especially the unicorns!) so if the girl on your shopping list wants one, don’t monkey around about buying one! Get them early.
You can check out ALL the Fingerlings here, including the cute Panda and Sloth.
Oh, and another hot toy for 2018 is the new Fingerlings Hugs, which are larger, softer versions of the finger clinging toys. Below is the lovable Bella Fingerlings Hugs doll. She’s interactive, responds to voice and touch, and even repeats things whispered in her ear…in her own funny way!
L.O.L. Surprise House with 85+ Surprises
L.O.L. Surprise! HouseL.O.L. anything are the hottest toys for girls right now. One of the newest toys in their line is the L.O.L. Surprise! House. Because where on earth do you put all those tiny plastic people your kid collects?
Here’s a few features of this mansion:
- At 3 ft tall by 3 ft wide, there’s loads of room
- The surprises are the included family, furniture and accessories
- Has a working elevator, lights and sounds, pool and hot tub
Not only is this a great place to store all those surprises, but there’s also lots of opportunity for imaginative play with this thing. Kids can make additional furniture for it out of household items (YouTube is full of tutorials for this!) and it can be used for other small dolls or Littlest Pet Shop characters.
The girl on your gift list will be the envy of her friends with this hot Christmas toy!
L.O.L. Surprise Under Wraps Eye Spy and Bigger Surprise!
Just when you think the whole surprise thing has been exhausted (spoiler alert: it hasn’t!), MGA Entertainment released more surprises to their L.O.L. toy line.
The Surprise Under Wraps Eye Spy Doll features a cylinder-shaped container (which later doubles as a purse), a doll in disguise, some mysteries to decode and of course, 15 surprises. This is currently a best-seller on Amazon and one of the top toys for girls (and boys actually like these too!).
The long-awaited L.O.L. Surprise Bigger Surprise! contains over 60 special and unique little bundles of joy for kids to discover. This one is poised to be one of the hottest Christmas toys for kids this year, so grab it fast if your walking bundle of joy wants one.
Buying Tip – Amazon usually has the best prices and availability of L.O.L. Surprise toys, but make sure the one you purchase says “ships from and sold by Amazon.com” to avoid getting a copycat toy.
PLAYMOBIL Magical Fairy Forest
PLAYMOBIL Magical Fairy ForestEach year, Playmobil releases new building and play sets full of their signature detail and charm. Playmobil sets are among the best toys for girls age 6 to 8 who like to build and play with their creations.
My favorite new Playmobil release for 2018 is the Magical Fairy Forest. The set is full of secret caves, fairy perches and swings, magical unicorns, a cauldron so the fairies can whip up healing balms for their animal friends, and of course a fairy throne.
I mean – this thing is DARLING! Girls will be enchanted for hours, playing out their imagined fairy adventures!
You can check out all the latest Playmobil sets here.
They have over 100 reactions, which vary depending on the mode it’s in. In game mode, kids can play games with the tail. In party mode, it will put on a light show to the beat of clapping. And in hang out mode, it purrs, growls, farts and says goofy phrases (as one does when one hangs out). 😉
If you have more than one, they will interact together. Gleemerz are brand new on the market, but are already getting great reviews and are on several hottest toys for Christmas lists this year.
Scientific Explorer Mind Blowing Science Kit
The 11 activities included in it are so fun and engaging, even parents are impressed. I mean, what’s not to love about giant, jiggly crystals?
The kit comes with most things you need, aside from some common household items most people already have (other than grape juice).
VTech Kidie Secrets Selfie Journal
VTech Kidi Secrets Selfie JournalThis is not the diary from your youth that you had to hide to keep your nosy siblings out of it. The VTech Kidie Secrets Selfie Journal has face recognition, so only its owner can open it. Here’s a few cool features of this high-tech journal:
- Front and rear camera for selfies and and photos
- Pre-loaded with apps for games, virtual pets, fashion fun, photo filters and more
- Holds 750 diary entries with photo and voice memos

The Selfie Journal is on the Toy Insider’s Holiday Toy List and is one of the latest toys for girls in 2018. It’s an engaging way to encourage girls to record their thoughts and with the added features of games, activities and photo filters, girls will get lots of use out of this!
Little Live Pets Sparkles Dancing Unicorn
She comes with a brush so girls can groom her and her horn lights up and changes colors to indicate it’s time to feed her.
She’s less than 6 inches in size, so your unicorn lover can take her along when traveling and for a dancing unicorn, she’s priced pretty reasonably.
Sparkles is on several hottest toys for Christmas this year is one of those most wanted toys for girls, no doubt!
Don’t Step In It Game
Unicorns and poop are the theme for the new toys of 2018, so it’s not surprise that Hasbro released the Don’t Step In It Game Unicorn Edition as an Amazon Exclusive.
The game comes with clay and a mold so kids form their piles of poo themselves, then place them on the game mat. Players take turns attempting to walk the mat blindfolded while avoiding the poo-bombs.
The Unicorn Edition is brand new and goes in and out of stock frequently on Amazon, so when you see it available, grab it! Don’t pay more than $20 for it.
The regular Don’t Step In It! Game is a riot as well and is a few bucks cheaper. But you know…unicorn poop is a hot commodity these days.
My Kissing Puppy – Rollie
Rollie responds to pets and cuddles with over 25 puppy sounds and actions. He wags his tail when he’s happy and sleeps when he’s frolicked enough for the day.
But the cutest thing about Rollie is that he gives doggie lick-kisses to show how much he loves his owner!
Rollie is the latest top toy for girls (and boys!) and is the next best thing to finding a real puppy under the tree. And there’s no poops to pick up.
Hairdorables are Top Christmas Toys for Girls
There are 36 dolls to collect, each based on one of the 12 YouTube stars, and of course, their iconic, lustrous and colorful hair.
The thing girls are loving most about these little beauties is that you never know which one you will get. The thrill of opening the package and discovering which Hairdorable doll is inside, is all part of the gift.
Not only is the doll a surprise, but there are 11 other tiny surprises inside the package and each one reveals a little more about the dolls personality and traits.
Girls are loving these adorable little dolls and the price is so good that it won’t break the bank to collect several of them. These are hot Christmas toys for girls!
Polly Pocket Transformaton Playset
Polly Pocket TransformationPolly’s baaaaack! Remember Polly Pocket from the late 90’s? She and her teeny-tiny playsets are back and are still super popular toys for girls age 6 to 8.
The Polly Pocket Transformation Playset adds a fun element to the play experience with its big Polly/little Polly concept.
The toy includes a 3-inch Polly doll and her tiny living quarters, but the transformation part is that there are all sorts of secret compartments where a little micro Polly lives too. Kind of like The Borrowers story.
Girls will love pushing and sliding all the secret compartments to reveal little micro Polly’s world. This little set is quite charming and is getting great reviews.
Crayola Color Chemistry Set
Crayola Color Chemistry SetCrayola gets that science is more fun when it’s colorful.
Their brand new Color Chemistry Set features 50 experiments for kids to do to help them learn about chemical reactions and other science-y stuff.
The nice thing is that, although some of the experiments require a few household items, a number of them can be done right out of the box with the included ingredients.
This a fun way for kids to spend a cold afternoon indoors!
PIKMI POPS Giant Flips
These are basically big, soft, balls that flip over to reveal a cuddly pet (either a bunny, dog, or cat).
Inside each pet is one (or if you’re lucky, two) more smaller pets, plus some stickers and other surprises.
They’re quite cute and make adorable pillows to decorate a girl’s room.

This is a fun Christmas toy for girls that the whole family can enjoy – Partridge Family style!
But the 2018 Barbie Dreamhouse is all about multi-purposing and making the most of your space. Although…it measures a whopping 4 feet wide and 3 feet tall. But that’s just all the more room for kids to play with it.
Some cool features of Barbie’s new digs are a couch that converts to a bunk bed for Chelsea sleepovers, a fireplace that converts to shelves for a home office, and room for 4 dolls!
And of course, there’s an elevator and a swimming pool (with slide!) and a garage.
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! It’s a top Christmas toy for girls for 2018, so if you want one, order early!
Littlest Pet Shop Cruise Ship
LPS Cruise ShipI love the Littlest Pet Shop line! With the increased number of tiny toy figures released just over the past year, they’ve kind of gotten lost in the shuffle of all the plastic collectible toys from China (**cough** L.O.L. Surprise **cough**).
So I’m keeping this popular toy for girls from last year on our list. It’s the latest addition to the Littlest Pet Shop world, their very own Cruise Ship.
The little critters 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 fun features and little girls will love taking their LPS collection out on the high seas. It’s still getting super reviews and is a really cute toy for girls who love playing with little tiny animal toys.
You can check out our complete review of the Littlest Pet Shop Cruise Ship here. Oh, and if you’re looking for more of the little critters to add to her collection, here’s a great deal on a collector party pack set of LPS pets.
