amazon

When kids reach 10 years old, their interests diverge — and they're not always so into toys anymore. One 10-year-old girl might love playing coding games on her iPad or tablet, while another might prefer drawing in a notepad or doing lots of DIY projects. The good news is, it's easy and often fun to help them develop their interests. From crafting kids to STEM projects to items that help them personalize their accessories, wardrobes and rooms, there's a lot of fun in shopping for a 10-year-old girl. No matter what your kid's hobbies are, there are plenty of great gift ideas for tween girls on this list — specifically gifts for 10-year-old girls.

Every year, the Good Housekeeping Institute evaluates hundreds of toys, the results of which inform stories like the Good Housekeeping Best Toy Awards. Our lab experts test toys and games for important factors like safety and quality, while real kids spend hours playing with them to make sure they're actually worth buying. Then, editors keep their eyes out for best-sellers and trend-setters with rave reviews outside of the toy world to come up with our lists of the best gifts for kids, including this guide to the best toys and gifts for 10-year-old girls. Don't forget to check out Good Housekeeping's other gift guides for kids of all ages, from toys for toddlers to gifts for teens (which your 10-year-old will be soon enough!), including gifts for 9-year-old girls, 9-year-old boys, 10-year-old boys, 11-year-old girls and 11-year-old boys.

These are the best toys and gifts for 10-year-old girls in 2022:
