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>!)

The service at Wicked Uncle is so fast and so satisfying, that I have told my daughter and her friends to check out the website. Delivery is so quick. Asa grandmother, I always look for unusual things for my kiddies. I think they have very clever things to offer! I have never had a problem with this company, and I plan on ordering from them again!

I purchased a “skip it” type of toy that broke in the first five minutes of use. I contacted Wicked Uncle and they promptly issued a refund for the brokentoy. That is what I call excellent customer service.

Unique gifts for kids.

The website was easy to browse. I found a great gift and my grandson loved it. The framed thank you card for the recipient to send was nice surprise.

Electronic toys did not work

The service I recieved was ok, however the two most expensive electronic toys were defective and did not ever work properly (the metal detector beeperwas so weak you could barely hear it and the memory toy was lighting up ad hoc, and did not do anything it was suppossed to do during start up despite the efforts of an uncle who is a mechanical engineer, yours truly his grandmother, and a 12 year old who was familiar with the toy having played it before. His assessment "Its defective" I would like a refund for both items please, or you shall surely loose my business
