Is a 4 year old girl responsible enough to get a pet?
Yes! And she will love it! But if you are getting a pet make sure you are prepared to take on the responsibility for taking care of it in case she won't. Lots of kids wish for a pet and promise they will take good care for it but they are not.
That said the best starter pet is a fish! Visit your local animal store and ask which fish needs low maintenance and is healthy gold fish are very popular but they tend to live very shortly and need constant cleaning so they aren't actually the best pets for kids. Beta fish on the other hand are very hearty and are also extremely beautiful.
Let them learn through play
Have them open their own shop and learn the value of money. A toy cash register is a fun way for them to learn how to handle money.
This will also help them with learning numbers and even some basic calculus as they will have to return the change and add up the numbers to pay the right amount.
You can make this gift even more interesting by adding some toy products for their store.
