How We Chose These Gifts

Our team of reviewers have tested a huge range of popular gifts to see which ones their girls enjoy the most and have the important features that will help benefit their development. There’s a range of criteria we look out for when choosing gifts to include in our recommendations and we try to include presents from different interests so there’s something for everyone.

There’s such a huge selection of gifts available for 3 year olds on the market that it can be overwhelming and very time consuming to look through all of them. That’s why we’ve reviewed them to help narrow down the list by choosing the best rated gifts and our children’s favorites. Whether you’re looking for an outdoorsy gift for a girl who loves being active, or a creative toy for a girl that enjoys using her imagination, we have a wide variety to choose from.

We examined the developmental benefits of each toy, along with how much children enjoy them and other factors including age appropriateness and safety considerations. The quality of the manufacturing, the durability and the value for money were all considered. We’ve outlined out selection criteria below for how we chose the best gifts for girls aged 3.

Age Appropriateness

Toys have a recommendation age range in their guidelines, however, these can something be quite a wide estimate. Of course, different children develop at different rates and there’s no set rules, but there are some important things that we’ve considered when choosing our top picks. At 3 years of age, there are social and physical changes that allow them to use new toys. Complexity is an important consideration, you don’t want something that’s too complicated, but ideally you want to buy a gift that will challenge a child and help them to further their development. We’ve chosen gifts that can hold a child’s attention and allow them to interact with it for a long time to help them get as many hours of fun as possible from their present.

Social Development

When a girl is three years old she’ll become a lot more aware of her surroundings the people around her. In the first couple of years of a child’s life, many of their toys will be just for them as they focus on understand their basic senses of touch, sound and sight. At age 3, they are more capable of playing with others and and become more aware of the concept of sharing and teamwork.

This is a great age to get involved with building blocks or Lego Duplo because they can play with others to help create buildings and understand the value of teamwork. At this age children will learn the fun of playing with siblings and other people and their confidence will grow as they start to make their first friends. This playtime with others is a great opportunity for girls to grow their vocabulary and improve their communication skills. As these communication skills develop, their relationship with adults will become more inquisitive, and they’ll begin to ask questions as they look to learn more about the world

Physical Development

3 years is a landmark year for girls as they begin to develop from being a toddler to a child. The word “toddler” derives from the word “to toddler”, which means to walk unsteadily. At around this age, 3 year olds will become a lot stronger on their feet, which will open up new possibilities when buying them a gift. Often, 3 year olds will want something that allows them to be active as they try to use their muscles more and release some energy.

They’ll also have increased dexterity which will allow them to play with more complex toys that require them to clip things together or press smaller buttons. Their increased sense of awareness also allows them to play with smaller pieces than when they were a baby.

Type of Gift

It’s good for children to have different types of toy so they can discover more about their interests and help to develop different aspects of themselves. We’ve included gifts from different categories, to give parents a choice of what’s most suitable for their daughter. We’ve included categories such as animal related toys, creative gifts, sporty, plushie and more.

Creative & Imagination

Any toys with lots of pieces and options available are great for igniting a child’s imagination. Mr Potato Head has become a timeless classic because it’s simple to play with and there’s loads of fun variations that children can create and have fun with. Any toys that include characters are great to help children use their imagination as they can create different scenarios for them to help bring them to life.


The safety and quality of toys is supremely important when choosing a gift. We look at toys with the best safety considerations that are created by the most reputable manufacturers. Toys that are build to the best standards have less chance of breaking and there being small or sharp objects that could cause harm to children.
