5 Perfect Gifts for an About to be Five-Year-Old Girl

By Stefanie Wilder Taylor |

Oh. My. God. I am soooo cute!

My daughter Sadie is turning five at the end of this month. It’s hard to believe it -especially hard to believe since she still weighs 29 pounds and is the same size as a lot of two-year-olds (but that’s a completely different post) (I don’t want to get in to it) (let it go) (I’m talking to myself now). Anyway, her taste in toys is that of an almost five-year-old and that’s what counts. The kid is as girlie girl as her twin sister is tom boy and I have made a gift list that reflects her taste. Keep in mind that Sadie also has an almost eight-year-old sister so some of the things she wants are because Elby either wants them, has had them or has mentioned them in passing and now Sadie can’t get them out of her head. But the things I’ve bought (or am about to buy) are things that I know she will love.So if you have a five-year-old or about to be five-year-old or you know one who needs a gift, I hope you find this useful.

Five Perfect Gifts for a Five-Year-Old

Baby Wanna Walk

First off, I had a Baby Alive when I was a kid. I, of course, still remember well how fun it was to watch her pee, drink a bottle etc. I also bought Elby a Baby Alive (the one that eats) and she still loves it. But I thought it would be fun for Sadie to have a different one and this is so cute. It walks on its own and let's you help her. What could be sweeter then watching your doll take her first steps? I'm only halfway joking. I really got this doll and Sadie is going to lose her sh*t over it!

A big thanks to Target for sponsoring this campaign (even though I would have done a post like this anyway!). Click here to see more of the discussion.

Do you know a deserving family, school, or charity this holiday season? We’re giving away one grand set of 20 toys from Target, including those mentioned in this post! To nominate, simply comment and tell us why you’ve selected them!

    I love Target.

    I’ve played Bopit Smash at Toys R Us and that game is hard. I want to buy it so I can play (and eventually win) that game while I’m in the valet line for parent pick up.

    I’m interested in seeing what’s on Matilda’s list!

  3. J says:

    These suggestions are spot on! Sadie will be one happy girl! What’s on Maddies list?????

  4. Marcie says:

    There is a website where you can upload you child’s photograph and an artist will paste in into a storybook starring them. This site has a special princess book that puts your daughter’s face on a bunch of different bodies. It is fun and educational, and girls would love it!
