Frequently Asked Questions

What are the best gifts for 12 year old girls for their birthday?

With many changes on the horizon, 12 year old girls are independent thinkers and enjoy exploring their own choices with sports, hobbies and interests. Girls are sociable in nature and love to spend time with their friends and family. It is a time of building a strong identity, with most kids this age enjoying gadgets, jewelry and trinkets that reflect this. We have tried and tested gifts that are perfect for girls specifically at this age.

What gifts for 12 year old tween girls are best?

A tweens bedroom is her castle and when it comes to gifts, funky lights and decor are a great idea. Our Origami Flower Lights, the light up Neon Effect Message Frame and color changing Jellyfish Lamp are the perfect additions to any bedroom! Check out our gifts sorted by popularity to not only get the best gifts, but also the most popularly gifted!

What is a typical 12 year old girl like?

This is it - the last year before she's a teenager. 12 is a milestone year for a number of reasons, so help her make the most of it!

Teenage emotions are a wild ride, and you'll get a taste of them this year. Prepare for high highs and low lows - every victory is the best day ever, and any setback, no matter how minor, is worthy of a Shakespearean tragedy. (But she'll probably study <i>Hamlet</i> in high school, so this is just practice.) At 12, she'll still love the important adults in her life - she'll just want nothing to do with them! 

While there will be moments this year when she acts like the young child you've always known, she's also growing into a young adult. This is a developmental stage where kids start finding leadership skills. Allow her to be involved in decision-making at home, and encourage her participation in community or school activities. She'll be happier and more confident when she feels she has a say in things.

But ultimately, she's just 12 - she's still figuring out who she is as a person. She's beginning to question the beliefs and values she grew up with. And there may be some big changes coming up. Is she a fast food fanatic who can't get enough of Big Macs? Try not to be too surprised if she becomes a loud and proud vegetarian overnight! Her beliefs may be different than yours, but she's carving out her own path in life. Encourage her to explore her interests - or as Shakespeare put it, "to thine own self be true". (Anything to help her get a headstart on <i>Hamlet</i>!)

Help with grandkids' birthdays

The gift ideas are very helpful to a grandfather who lacks the day to day contact with kids and knowledge of their interests. Ordering was easy, shipmentprompt. I am a regular visitor to Wicked Uncle at birthday time.

More fun with coloring

Bought an interactive coloring book for my granddaughter’s 10th birthday. She loves it! Provides a new way to experience coloring by asking them to draw partsof the picture themselves! Great shipping - arrived on time!!

Great service

Shipped quickly. It was nice to have the items right away. Had them gift wrapped and they did an excellent job. In hindsight, I should not have madethat choice so I could put the batteries in the items! I'm not unwrapping them. I'm looking forward to when she turns five so I can come back here again. Definitely Christmas!

Boy not ready for this toy

I bought for 8 yr old boy and he looked at it and said I prefer games that I can play with others However hisdad and his grandpa had a lot of fun with it Guess he was too young and too active to settle down and study it His dad was glad to take home though.
