Best Gifts for 9 Year Old Girls in 2017

Toys and other gifts appropriate for 9 to 10 year old girls!

Browse through some of the best gifts for 9 year old girls!

I’ve made this list with the “girly girl” in mind, so most of the toys and gifts featured on this one have a dash of pink (or other feminine touches). However I did my best to find a mix of pretty much everything – from the simple things that are just made to be fun to things that encourage science, engineering and other technical skills.

What Gifts Does a 9 to 10 Year Old Girl Want?

What do they like? Well that really depends on their character and what they like in general – if she likes sports something sports related will work great, if she likes to read then a book or two or a kit to make their own book…

Big Bag of Science 

We’re getting straight to science!

This kit has more than 70 activities covering three fields of science – life, physical and earth so there’s a lot fun things to do and to explore and as it is so colorful (and fun) it is bound to appeal even to those that are not all that into science.

Make Your Own Lip Balm

Making your own lip balm is fun! This kit allows your girls to create 12 lip balms (either for themselves or to share with their friends) – they will be able to mix and match colors and add different flavors.

Certainly way more fun than just getting a lip balm or a lip gloss.


Keeping them fit and active with this fun caster board. While these do look a bit woobly (the fact that they only have 2 wheels doesn’t help) they are really stable once you get the hang on it and allow for much more control than the skateboards of our time did.

Gummy Candy Maker

What better way to make sure the yummy gummy bears are healthy (well as much as they can be) than to make them at home?

This gummy candy maker kit lets your kids create their favourite candy as they mix and match different flavours in their ultimate candy goal. They’ll be able to make their favourite shapes – gummy bear, fish and snake!

Deluxe Spa Gift Set

This is a great mother daughter gift as it will let you two spend some precious mother daughter time as you relax in the spa (nothing wrong if this will be used as a father daughter time gift either).

More Great Gift Picks for 8 Year Old Girls

A Book is Always Great

Pippi Longstocking is a great book as it’s main character, Pippi, is a very strong willed child, independent and unique in so many ways that you just have to love her!

She’s always up to something fun and adventurous and once you start to venture into her world you just can’t stop (aka put the book down).

Make Your Own Book

Reading a book is one thing but writing your own is a whole new exciting thing and that’s why I am in love with this thing (I even think this one is the best gift you can get to a 9 year old girl).

This kit lets your kid create their own book – either by hand or on the computer and have that book published and mailed to them. What a great way to encourage creative writing!


This fun building toy lets your kids create all kinds of constructions and even movable creations.

Nerf Rebelle Agent Bow

As I think we should always encourage outdoor active play this is also one of the must toys to have in your home. I admit I am not too keen on toy guns at home (have nothing against them but there are so many people pro or contra that you can easily step on someone’s toes with them haha) but I do like bows as they require a bit more skills and patience to master. Enough about that though – this toy bow will let your kids run around a lot as well as do some target practice.
