1. VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX

Ages: 4 to 9

First on our list of the top 10 toys for girls 2015 and into 2016 – VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX.

While last year’s smart watch from VTech was a huge hit with kids and parents, this year’s upgrade has even more promise with additional practical and entertaining features. Of course there is the basic feature of telling time, additionally children can use a calendar and even a calculator for working out problems. Add in pictures, video and even a motion sensor – and that’s not even the end of what this more advanced watch can do!

2. Girl Scouts Deluxe Cookie Oven

Ages: 8 to 15

Second among the best toys for girls this year is Girl Scouts Deluxe Cookie Oven.

When I laid eyes on this new cookie oven, I knew that it would steal the hearts of many-a-kiddo out there. It is already gaining a lot of attention and is certain to be one of the more looked-for Christmas gifts this year. More features than what is traditional for a “toy” oven, children now have more flexibility in baking — but make sure to pay attention to the recommended age on this toy, as it most definitely is not made for younger children.

3. Nerf Rebelle Secrets & Spies Arrow Revolution Bow Blaster

Ages: 8 and up

And hitting 3rd place among the best girls’ toys for 2016-2016 – Nerf Rebelle Secrets & Spies Arrow Revolution Bow Blaster.

Last year’s Nerf Rebelle toy release was (not surprisingly) quite popular, and this year’s will likely prove to be a “can’t miss” gift as well. Yes, young ladies like to get into the “NERF Wars” action too – and now with the ability to produce fast-firing arrows up to 90 feet they’ll likely be showing up more on the battle scene. Arrows are automatically loaded and whistle when soaring through the air.

4. LeapFrog Epic Tablet for Kids

Ages: 2 to 9

Making its mark at #4 on the list – LeapFrog Epic Tablet.

Moving onward and upward with children’s mobile technology, LeapFrog appears to have taken the prize this year for the “best and brightest” in tablets. More like an internet tablet than a specialized “learning tablet,” this model geared just for kids has all the features that parents and kids are used to and love – plus some pretty advanced features that make it more special – and customized to each child.

Ages: 6 to 12

A new look for the LEGO “Friends” line hits the top ten list of girls toys for this year with the Pop Star Limo Set (41107).

One of the new releases in LEGO’s “Friends” lineup, this set will be stealing the hearts of many-a-girl this Christmas and beyond.

6. Disney Frozen Sing-A-Long Elsa Doll

Ages: 3 and up

Sixth up on the list – Disney Frozen Sing-A-Long Elsa Doll.

While this year’s Frozen queen Elsa has some fun features like her dress lighting up and saying some fun phrases, her most highlighted ability in 2015 is singing a duet with little ladies. Little girls and Elsa can take turns singing the lines from “Let it Go,” passing the mic back and forth, or have Elsa sing the full version of the song on her own. Sweet!

7. VTech Flipsies Sandy’s House and Ocean Cruiser

Ages: 4 to 9

VTech Flipsies Sandy’s House and Ocean Cruiser is another very hot seller among girls’ toys for 2015 and into 2016.

A new concept in toys from VTech, the Flipsies are transforming sets that allow kids to have two-in-one make believe play. This set is apparently the most popular of them (at this writing), changing from a beautiful house to an ocean cruiser. And – as only VTech can, there are additonal electronic features that set this toy apart from the rest. As is true with other Flipsies sets, this one can be combined with others to create a whole world of imagination.

8. Play-Doh Crazy Cuts

Ages: 3 and up

My personal favorite among the top ten toys for girls this year – Play-Doh Crazy Cuts.

Love this toy! There are other Play-Doh sets being released this year, but this one surpasses in allowing for creative imagination. What kind of hair would you like your little character to have? Stylish, long, short, braided, and – uh – even a mohawk! Hmmm. Anyway, kiddos can get as creative and crazy as they want with this sure-hit toy. :)

9. Shopkins Fashion Boutique Playset

Ages: 5 and up

Shopkins Fashion Boutique Playset makes it to #9 on the list.

Being a huge hit last year, the traditionally food-oriented Shopkins toys have now entered the world of fashion! 4 Shopkins are included with this set, as well as a couple of handbags and a boutique for little ones to go on their own shopping sprees, taking the elevator upstairs and sliding down for more fun.

10. LEGO Disney Princess Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle (41062)

Ages: 6 to 12

The final item on this year’s list of the ten best girls’ toys is LEGO Disney Princess Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle.

This LEGO set has proved to make the top ranks in girls’ favorite sets last year, and continues to be a huge hit with young ladies. While the set’s main highlight is the castle itself, other accessories allow playtime to spring into extra action with skis, a sleigh and ice skates – plus imaginative and creative accessories for fashion and beauty. A can’t-miss gift for any young “Frozen” fan. :)
