10 Cute Toys for Girls

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 2 17

There are numerous toys for girls. Some of these toys we as adults might think are ugly or stupid but young girls simply adore these toys. If you have a girl then you probably already own 1 or more of the cute toys on this list. If you need an idea of what to buy for a girl than here are 10 popular choices. All of these choices were chosen and approved by a 7 ½ year old girl who definitely knows her toys. Here are the top 10 cute girl toys. Any of these would make a great gift for a girl.

1. Littlest Pet Shop

Littlest Pet Shop

You have little animal pets with large heads. It seems like a simple toy yet girls cannot get enough of these. There are special and rare collector’s editions of Littlest Pet Shop that you can get. There are numerous add-ons available. These little cute toys can keep girls amused for hours.

2. Barbie Dolls

Barbie Doll

Barbie Dolls are one of the most popular girl’s toys of all-time. No girl can claim to have been raised properly by her parents if she did not own at least one Barbie Doll.

3. Stroller


There are many strollers designed for kids to play with; however you may also just let them play with their old stroller if you prefer. Young girls love to push their dolls around in a stroller and act just like mom does. Hopefully she will not start nagging like mom likes to do.

4. Zhu Zhu Pets

Zhu Zhu Pets became extremely popular a few years ago and were flying off shelves faster than the stores could get new shipments in. Although the popularity of Zhu Zhu Pets has waned recently, girls still love to play with them.

Zhu Zhu Pets are little hamster toys that move on their own. You can even buy add-on accessories as well as buying Zhu Zhu Pets in a variety of colors and styles. This is also a good gift to prank grandma with when she is coming out of the bathroom and she spots what initially appears to be a mouse coming at her.

Zhu Zhu Pets can be put into “adventure” mode where they move around on their own. You can also choose to put the Zhu Zhu Pets into “Nurture” mode and the make cooing noises when you touch them. Girls love Zhu Zhu Pets as much as boys do.

5. Lalaloopsy Dolls 

Lalaloopsy Doll

Lalaloopsy Dolls are also commonly miscalled Lala Lucy dolls. Lalaloopsy Dolls are not what a lot of adults would consider as a cute girls toy, but we as adults are not the experts.  Young girls go crazy for the Lalaloopsy Dolls. Even if you think it is ugly buy a Lalaloopsy Doll for your daughter. Remember when your mom thought Cabbage Patch Kids were ugly? Yep, so go ahead and buy a Lalaloopsy Doll for your daughter. The sooner you get one before Christmas the better chance you will have of finding the one you want. Lalaloopsy Dolls may look awesome to you or they may look ugly; but either way girls love these dolls with the strange hair. The button eyes though are pretty cool because it is a throwback to retro dolls and Amish dolls.

6. Bratz Dolls

Bratz Doll Elica

A Bratz Doll is like a Barbie Doll except they have massively huge eyes and wear too much make-up. They look like Barbie Dolls who have smoked and snorted too much methamphetamine. For whatever reason young girls tend to think that Bratz Dolls are cute. They are very popular even though some parents will not allow their daughter to have one.

7. Stuffed Animals

Plush Animals

Plush stuffed animals are the seminal toy of young children. The evolution of plush toys can be traced far back in history. Pioneers who were traveling West by wagon often had children that had a stuffed doll that was carried with them. A plush doll can also be calming for children. Many children like to sleep with their favorite stuffed animal. Once they name their stuffed animal and start playing with it they can become very attached to them.

8. Barbie Jeep

“A girl’s Best Friend” is how the young girl described owning a Barbie Jeep to me. If you want to make your daughter the envy of all the other girls in the neighborhood then buy her a Barbie Jeep. She can cruise around and have all kinds of fun until the battery goes dead. Fortunately the batteries are re-chargeable.

9. Monster High Girls

Monster High Girls

Mattel is the maker of Barbie Dolls and they also produce the Monster High Girls. Each doll has characteristics of certain monsters such as fangs. Many girls think that the Monster High Girls are cute toys. They can appear a tad freaky compare to regular Barbie Dolls, but they do look much better than the Bratz Dolls. Monster High Girls are a good gift for girls because it can help show young girls that you do not have to look like Barbie in order to be cool.

10. Lego’s for Girls


You can never go wrong buying Lego’s for young girls unless you also happen to own a dog who likes to eat Lego Pieces. Lego’s can be an educational toy, but for the most part girls (and boys) like Lego blocks simply because they are so much fun to play with. Artistic talents within your children can be discovered when they begin to create more advanced models with their Lego blocks. Don’t skimp on the blocks either. The more Lego blocks you buy the better. How can you child create the Taj Mahal of Lego’s if they do not have enough blocks to do it?

The only problem you might run into with Legos other than the dog eating them is your daughter may get frustrated that you as the parent are playing with the Legos more than here.

I love those Lalaloopsy Dolls! This is going to be a must have list for Christmas. Great job.

The Lalaloopsy Dolls are great gifts! It will be the favorite doll for years - or maybe forever!

I totally understand why a parent wouldn't want their daughter to have a Bratz Doll. I think it has something to do with their skimpy clothes and the fact that the Bratz Dolls do wear too much make-up. There's even parents who don't want their daughters to have Barbie Dolls either due to her bodies proportions. Lalaloopsy doesn't look ugly, but I wonder if those who saw the movie Coraline will still want a Lalaloopsy doll.

I understand your concern. And yes, many parents don't approve of the Barbie and Bratz. But the girls love them! - If I was egoistic (I am from Denmark) then it would of course be nice (for the Danish economy) if the only toy was the Danish Lego bricks.

Good to know for my almost 4 year old. She loves her stuffed toys and Lego set at the moment. BTW, It's nice to see a Dane on here - I lived in Copenhagen for 3 months a few years ago and I loved it! Couldn't make it to Legoland though.

Thank you for your comment! Well, I am a Dane in exile, I live in Sweden now, and before that I have lived in many countries on four different continents.

Hi Askformore, I apologize if this comment isn't related to the post [being toy-blind is part of being a man I guess :) ] If it's alright, how did you insert images in this post? When I insert images in my IB articles they have to be through the text capsules (which obviously is limited only to placing them at the extreme top or bottom, but not in-between texts or paragraphs in the post itself).

How did you do it? I'll be so grateful if you would help?

I have sent a PM to you.

Lovely article even if it's not exactly an area I'm up on - I have no kids and I was a boy!
Jun 17, 2012 4:06am
Thank you for your comment! I hope my article will help you if your ever have to give a girl a present. Girls (of all ages) love cute toys!

My daughters had most of these toys. Bratz bothered me, but not Barbie. I disliked many of the toys with little pieces for my younger kids, as they never cleaned them up! I finally had to donate them to save my feet from stepping on random Bratz and Barbie and Polly Pocket pieces.
Jun 17, 2012 2:00pm
Thank you for the comment!
I am certain that the receivers of the donated toys for girls became happy. Most likely your feet became even more happy (I know how it feels to step on Lego bits with bare feet)

Great article.
I always played with my Barbie and I had a stroller as well. I was around four when I got lost one day because I took my doll out for a walk in the neighborhood. My parents found me blocks away from home.

Thumbs Up!

Thank you for your comment! I am certain that you and your Barbie doll had a nice day out!
Jun 21, 2012 8:17pm
I don't have any small children to buy gifts for, but I still enjoyed reading about what is new and popular. Congratulations on being featured. Thumbs Up!

Thank you for the visit and comment!
Well, you could buy a few gifts for yourself! Are you a fan of Barbie or the Zhu Zhu Pets?
May 26, 2013 3:24am
Thanks for drawing my attention to these toys, askformore. I was recently asked to be a godmother to a baby girl before she was born. However, I have a feeling she'd prefer the 'real' version of the Zhu Zhu pets! Appreciate your effort in crafting this article, especially liked the photos.

--> And you sure cracked me up there! :D
