If you are having a tough time trying to get your 7-year-old child off the iPad or TV to reduce screen time and include some physical activity and mental stimulation, we have just the toys that will help you out.
At the age of seven, girls are completely into role-play games, creating and crafting, and playing with friends. Toys that will appeal to them are bags, cosmetics, barbies, dolls, painting, and jewelry making. They also enjoy board games, puzzles, and fun stationery for drawing and coloring.
Stimulation and physical activity are essential for this age. By now, kids are typically in grades one-two. This means they spend a lot of time learning, studying, and having rigid, structured routines. They need toys to immerse them in unstructured, open-ended with addition to fun physical activity.
What do seven-year-olds need for play?
They require play that will not force them to act a certain way or do specific things. They need to be free and feel like they are in control. This is where pretend-play and crafting activities are important. They can create their own scenarios, do what they consider fun, and be expressive through crafting activities.
They need toys and other playing items that will allow them to release the pressure of being what is needed and rather just being who they really are as innocent, fun, loving, curious, crazy kids.
Take a look at this list of toys for seven-year-old girls:

With mobiles these days, you might think your child won’t care for a walkie-talkie, but are they going to randomly call you from the other side of the house saying “testing, testing”? Even if they do, that excitement is nowhere near the same as doing it with a walkie-talkie.
This set includes two pink walkie-talkies with long-range to handle up to 3 miles in an open field and 0.5-1 mile range in a residential area.
