#1 Kids Tablet

LeapPad is the Number 1 toy I would recommend for a preschooler. It truly makes learning fun. Although Mom's & Dad's Ipad, Iphone, or Kindle Fire are fun and many apps may be educational, preschoolers love having their own devices. A kids tablet is great for entertainment, learning, and as an alternative to expensive devices that you may not want to have accidentally dropped or broken. LeapFrog is one of the leaders in Toy manufacturing and they do a lot of research when it comes to developing apps and games for different stages of child development, helping preschoolers develop important skills they will need in kindergarten. LeapPad can help your child learn letters and numbers, introduce her to Phonics/ early reading/ writing, counting/ math, help her improve fine motor skills, and so much more. And the digital camera makes this toy an even better value.

This learning tablet made for kids ages 3 to 9 years old is one of the best selling toys for preschoolers. The award winning toy has a 4GB onboard memory, built-in front & back cameras/ video recorders, and a touch screen. The LeapFrog software will track your child's progress, adjusting skill levels to match your child's pace and remember progress. LeapPad comes with 5 apps, and additional games, digital books, videos, and apps can be purchased at the cost of around $5 to $25 per app, game, ebook or flash cards. LeapPad is the # 1 Learning Tablet.*

#2 Doll house

Loving Family Dollhouse is the gift that will make a little girl's Christmas morning the "best ever!" Imagine how her eyes will light up with excitement when she unwraps the gift and finds a fully-furnished three-story house inside. If your preschooler likes imaginative play and dolls, this dollhouse is sure to be a hit. This Fisher Price Doll House includes Loving Family dolls and plenty of furniture to keep your 4 year old girl busy for hours. Great gift for 4 year old girl that will be enjoyed and played with for years to come.

Kidkraft Dollhouses are also very much worth considering. The house and furniture are made out of wood and are built to last.

#3 Princess dress up gifts

4 year old girls love to play dress up. Princess dresses, fancy shoes, and sparkly tiaras are good gifts for 4 year old girls who enjoy pretend play. And for a Royal Highness who already has a nice princess wardrobe, a play castle or a vanity are great gift options.

#4 Art & craft gifts for 4 year old girls

4 year old girls enjoy "hands-on" activities that allow them to express creativity and create masterpieces. Does your little girl like to work on crafty projects? Then make sure to provide her with personal craft space with all the art and craft materials readily available. The art & craft desk featured below is perfect for that purpose. What types of art and craft projects do 4 year olds enjoy? They like sticky mosaics, working with modeling clay, and creating crafts, pictures and collages using various media.

#5 Melissa & Doug toys

Some time ago, I asked a 4 year old girl about her favorite toys, and she immediately answered: "Puzzles!" In fact, she had a nice collection of wooden puzzles from Melissa and Doug, and her Mom confirmed that they they were getting a good use out of all the puzzles they owned. Melissa and Doug make great puzzles for toddlers and preschoolers. 24-48 piece puzzles are a good challenge for a 4 year old.

#6 Pretend Play Gift for 4 year old girls

Pretend play is very important in early childhood development as it helps with improving gross and fine motor skills, as well as with developing imagination, expression, and creativity.

Dalmatian Vet Kit, 15-Piece
Dalmatian Vet Kit, 15-Piece

This adorable puppy will make a great gift for 4 year old girl who likes stuffed animals and enjoys pretend play. The ineractive puppy makes fun sounds, including "feeding and chewing noises when the feeding bottle or bone are held up to the puppy's mouth", and "its nose changes from glowing red to black when wiped with a tissue". The puppy comes with plenty of accessories: stylish bag, stethoscope, thermometer, milk bottle, prescription pad, bone, birth certificate, syringe and tissue. Be sure to click on the link and watch amazon infomercial video to see the puppy at play :)

 

#7 Board Games for 4 year old girls

With longer attention span and ability to follow rules, 4 year old girls are ready for some age-appropriate table games that can teach them letters, numbers, sequence, matching, teamwork, cooperative play and more. Our top picks include "Telltale Fairy Tales", "Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel", "Zingo", and "Peaceable Kingdom".

#8 One of the Best Gifts for 4 year old girls Ever!

Insect Lore Butterfly Pavilion - Large Habitat Hatching Kit With Voucher For 10 Caterpillars

This popular Live Butterfly Pavilion is a hit with pre-schoolers and is a favorite educational kit in daycare centers. Kids love observing and feeding butterflies in the different stages of development and then release them in the wild or keep full-grown butterflies at home for their life span of 2-4 weeks.

 

#9 Lego Bricks for Girls

Who said Legos are for boys? Girls love Legos too!

#10 Popular Christmas Gifts for Preschoolers 2013

A few more must-have items in a 4 year old's toy collection: a turtle light, LeapFrog Reading & Writing System (New and Improved Tag Reading system!), a scooter (recommended for kids ages 5+, but really is the best investment if you are looking for something to last a few years), and last, but not least - Power Wheels Jeep (if it's in your budget, the gift is pretty much guaranteed to be a hit and will get plenty of use!)

      My girl's will be turning 4 in August. We are trying to get rid of the toddler toys and transition to big girl toys. I think the Melissa and Doug toys are my favorites but my girl's have pretty strong opinions about what they want for birthdays now.

      Cute lens. I have 1 year old daughter, and educational toys at this age are a must. When she'll be 4, I'm definitely buying her lego bricks (at the moment we are very much into DUPLO :)).
