Oh, the nine-year-old girl! You can almost characterize them as pre-teen, because from age nine to twelve it’s all about practicing to be teenagers. Girls of this age are hero-worshippers, desiring the lives of the teenagers they see at home, in their neighborhoods, or at church. And in pop culture they idolize the latest K-Pop group or Disney star.
Parents and grandparents of these impressionable children should remember that they are children, no matter how old and mature they seem at times. Hold off on the makeup and certain grown up teen fashions for now, no matter how much they beg. There is plenty of time for them to grow up. They need a few more years of childhood.
And…the gifts you purchase them for them this Christmas can still honor their growth and can be a bit more sophisticated, less babyish, more stylish, and “cooler” than the toys of the past. Our list reflects this, bridge with some being more on the eight-year-old side of the spectrum and others that look more “teeny-bopper.” The favorites on on the list are the All-New Fire HD Kids Edition Tablet and the Nintendo Entertainment Center (NEC Classic Edition) with Game Console and Controller.
Other really cool choices are the Wonder Workshop Dash – Voice Activating Coding Robot for Kids and the classic Nintendo Entertainment System Game Console with Controller. But, all of our other recommendations below are great as well! And…some may become scarce as we approach Christmas, so we’ve made the list below “clickable” for easy ordering. God bless you, Merry Christmas, and happy shopping!
