Frequently Asked Questions

What do I buy an 8 year old girl?

Girls this age love to develop their sense of style and identity. Check out our brilliant Origami Flower Lights so she can create her own very own beautiful origami flower color-changing lights, or how about the color changing Jellyfish Lamp which is the perfect additions to any girls bedroom! Why not also consider Fashion Design Light Up Sketch Pad, Amazing Magic Pens Set of 25, or the amazing Hogwarts Castle Harry Potter in 3D puzzle.

What are 8 year old girls into?

Bursting with independence and creative expression, girls at this age enjoy spending time mastering more complex tasks, fostering their social connections, playing sports and reading. 

What is a typical 8 year old girl like?

At 8 years old, girls are still a long way off appearance-conscious adolescence. But the average 8 year old girl will likely become interested in how she looks, and start to have strong opinions on her hairstyle or what she wears. Encourage her to express herself! Plus some of the funkiest accessories and boldest colors are only available in child sizes - why not live vicariously through her fashion choices!

All eight year olds feel a strong need to belong in their social circles. By third grade, girls are increasingly more self-reliant and proactive about inviting friends over for sleepovers and organising playdates. (But don't call it a 'playdate' in front of her, because she'll say the word is too babyish!) Girls this age tend to pair off in smaller groups and have close individual friendships - but the closer the friendship, the more intense the emotions and the drama if something goes wrong. Peer pressure can be a powerful thing. Encourage her to always be herself, and to pursue interests and hobbies where she can make like-minded friends.

Eight year old girls are also emotionally maturing at a rapid rate. They may begin to need 'me-time', free and unstructured time in which they're left alone with their thoughts. Girls have a growing need for privacy and healthy ways to deal with their more private feelings. A lockable drawer or box, or a diary with matching key, are meaningful gifts. Not only do they keep her secrets safe, but they will also show you respect her need for privacy.

Excellent customer service

Update to my original 1-star review below: Changing my review to 5-stars due to stellar customer service in determining what happened to my order. The mistake was onthe part of the USPS and after speaking with them, the item arrived the next day. Wicked Uncle's customer service went above and beyond to help resolve the problem. Also, the plush corgi dog is well made and currently being loved by my daughter. Thank you! -------------------------------------------- This review is not about the item because I have not received it yet. This review is concerning the shipping and delivery. I ordered an item on July 1st for a birthday July 16th. I figured this would be plenty of time for it to arrive. Unfortunately, I assumed incorrectly as it is now late in the evening of July 15th and there is still no item. Tracking shows it has been sitting in the town where it needs to be delivered for NINE DAYS. I have lost all faith it will arrive in time for her birthday, what a waste. I understand delays can happen, but it has been over 2 weeks since it was shipped - unacceptable. I will not be ordering from this company in the future no matter what the quality of the gift turns out to be.
