The best gift for a 4 year old girl is something wonderful and magical, something that can truly surprise her and make her birthday really special or Christmas time truly enchanting.

Most 4 year old girls live in a princess world of beauty, pink and ponies. Their pretend play involves treasures and castles, fairies and magic, they love to take care of their sick stuffed animals and pretend they are doctors.

Princess Castles and Figurines

4 year old girls like to use their imagination and play princess all the time. Melissa and Doug Deluxe Wooden Princess Castle is beautifully made. When the castle is folded it measures 18" W x 15" deep, making it relatively small. And when the castle is opened up it expands to three feet long.

Melissa and Doug Princess Castle Furniture Set includes 12 piece furniture and wooden figurines dolls set made of non-toxic paint.

I love toys who encourage many opportunities for imaginative play. I never had a princess castle when I was little, playing together with my daughter really makes me nostalgic for my care-free days!

Disney Princess Figurine Figure Sets

Little Mermaid, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty or Rapunzel are all part of any little girl's world. Princess figurines sets come with different dresses which girls like to change from one doll to the next. Ariel, of course is our favorite.

Just like boys like to collect all Thomas the Train Engines, girls collect all of their favorite princesses from the Disney movies.

I designated a special toy storage bin for all our princess figurines and other magical characters.

Choose her favorite princess figurine set.

Princess Dress Up Costumes

When I was a little girl, I used to play dress up with my grandmother's silk scarves. Me and my cousins would pretend we were princesses going to a dancing ball in a magic castle.

4 year old girls love to dress up as their favorite princess or other whimsical character, let them experience this magical pretend play. After all, we girls believe we are princesses and the world is one magical place only during childhood.

Cinderella, Bell or Sleeping Beauty - choose their favorite princess dress. Later you can use it as a Halloween costume.

Violet or Pink Laptop

4 year old girls love to pretend they are just like their parents and work on their computers. Both laptops featured on your right would be a good educational activity for any girl of preschool age.

We have the VTech Tote Pink Laptop, which I use to occupy my 4 year old one's attention if I need to put dinner together, send an email or for a long ride in the car.

Pretend Play Medical Kit

Pretend play medical kit toys are great for independant creative play. Based on the experiences I have with my 4 year old and her friends, girls this age love to pretend they are doctors or veterinarians. The examine their stuffed animals and make them medicine or cook them soup if they are sick.

Medical kits would be a great gift for any 4 year old girl who loves to pretend she is a doctor. She might not know what all the tools in the kit are for, but it does not matter. Imagination is far more important than knowledge at this age.

Insect Lore Live Butterfly Garden

Little girls are enchanted by the colorful beauty of butterflies. We can never see the ones flying in the park long enough to truly admire their patterns. With the butterfly garden they can witness one of nature's most spectacular transformations up close.

Raising butterflies and setting them free is an amazing experience that your little one will remember.
