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.

Reasonably priced gifts for grandchildren who have everything. And very amusing. Even bought my 47-year-old son a unique gift.

I’ve requested about a half dozen times to be removed from email list, and still haven’t been removed. I never agreed to be on one to begin with.

Don't buy it.

Service was fine. Product was bad. The scratch and sniff book didn't smell like anything. In other words, a rip off.

Magnetic Faces

This was my second time using Wicked Uncle and I plan to continue in the future. They offer unusual and interesting gifts that just can't be found anywhereelse within an hours drive. It's a great way to shop for gifts that are really different and unique!

Ditto

I bought the Ditto robot for my grandson who just turned 7. He absolutely loved it and Ditto’s laugh made us all laugh. Ditto is a clever and originaltoy. Plus it came with an extra set of batteries which was helpful. Very fun!
