Tweens are the children who fall in between childhood and teens. 10-year-old girls are on this bridge, too young to explore on their own but old enough to have their own preferences. This is the time when girls start to groom themselves more than their Barbies. Or, shift from clay dough cooking to actual cooking in the kitchen. On the other hand, some would completely flip their interests and would jump from drawing cartoons to singing and dancing. For this reason, often looking for the perfect gifts for 10-year-old girls can be challenging.
However, all it takes is to drill down on their current interests to allow them to explore more of what they are capable of. Instead of seeing things not being used at all, here are some gifts for 10-year-old girls that you can consider:
