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.

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
