Looking for fun gifts for five year old girls? We have everything you need to make their birthday or Christmas as special as they are.

Five is an exciting age: they're just starting kindergarten, and their whole world is opening up. They're being exposed to new people and new places, and they're curious about it all! At this stage, they're also starting to master their vocabulary a little more, so they can carry on 'big kid' conversations (...usually about unicorns).

But as five year olds move further away from their chubby-cheeked toddler years, their emotional development can fluctuate. This is an 'in-between' stage, so expect meltdowns over minor things. Fortunately for them (and us!), these will become rarer as they learn to regulate their emotions and look for affirmation from adults.

Kindergarten is when little ones learn to read and write. Their longer attention span and increasing control of their fine motor skills means they can now turn pages of a book, grasp a pencil, and use safety scissors. Gifts which encourage literacy and creativity, such as colorful crayons and fun story books, are perfect for this milestone age.

And the cutest thing about five year olds in kindergarten: at this age, they're moving from 'parallel play' with other kids to more interactive social play. This is also the age in which their brains are more able to distinguish fantasy from reality. But little girls still love to play dress-up, so make-believe and role play toys make fantastic (and adorable) gifts.
