Editor’s Rating:

Recommended Age: 6+

This fun toy is a light up board where you place a sheet of paper and then can trace an outline of whatever lies below. It’s incredibly useful, especially for those just learning how to draw. Light boards like these are popular tools in the art world as they help beginning artists identify the fundamentals and commonalities of drawing.

Pros

  • Clever light board makes tracing easy
  • Teaches fundamentals for beginners

Cons

  • Bulb dies out over time

Dressing up can be for bathtime too, as this fuzzy robe from Doctor Unicorn shows. Along with other fantastical features, fairies, and princesses, unicorns are quite popular among young girls: for this reason, a fuzzy bathrobe is a great pick.

Pros

  • Six-year-olds love fantastical creatures
  • Brings dress-up to bathtime
  • Material is soft and warm

Cons

  • Robe is a bit short

The cup consists of 3 different colored cups used for different challenging games. Your kid can explore her skills using the 4 different modes supported by the kit.

Micro Kickboard Scooter

Why we like it: A three-wheeled scooter isn’t just a fun way to get around the neighborhood, but it can also be a good way to learn balance skills.

Editor’s Rating:

Recommended Age: 5-12

While two-wheeled scooters are some of the most popular toys for younger users, 6-year-old girls might take a bit of time to adapt. If the young girl in your life is just starting out, she might be better off with a three-wheeled option scooter like this one that can help her out with balance.

This model from Micro Kickboard is one of many available, with a host of colors and a two-year warranty to boot. The only issue is that she might outgrow it as three-wheeled scooters like this one are a bit smaller and meant for younger kids.

Pros

  • Helps young girls learn balance skills
  • Host of colors available
  • Two-year warranty

Cons

  • Smaller format means your girl might outgrow the scooter quickly

Editor’s Rating:

Recommended Age: 6-12

The Easy Bake Oven is a classic, teaching young children all over the US skills like measuring, planning, timing and more. It’s not merely a toy: this is a functional oven, shrunk down and simplified to be made to work for kids.

Pros

  • Functional oven shrunk down to work for kids
  • Simplified controls
  • Teaches planning, budgeting, and measuring

Your child can customize their toys with different colored slimes, beads, glitters, and more.
