Crayola Inspiration Art Case
These days a variety of art kits, like the Crayola Inspiration Art Case, can be purchased from basic sets that include crayons and a notebook to complete sets with crayons, color pencils, watercolors and so on. Art kits are a great gift to offer to a child who is in preschool or older. If you don’t have a big budget, just getting your child their own set of papers or a notebook, together with a box of crayons or color pencils should do the trick.

ALEX Toys Craft My First Sewing Kit
If you feel drawings and paintings don’t do enough, why not encourage your children to make something? You can buy craft sets in just about any type, from origami to friendship bracelets to old-fashioned crafts like knitting and sewing. Of course, ready-made sets aren’t the only option. Sometimes kids get most creative when armed with just a few basic tools, and given random household scraps to create from. This can include old toilet paper tubes, scrap paper, old flower pots and more.

Wooden Building Blocks
These toys are as simple as it gets, but they are very good at stirring up your child’s creativity! Building blocks encourage your children to come up with different structures and put their hands to work.

 

 

 

Musical Instruments
Music is a great tool to inspire creativity, so getting your child an instrument, even if it’s a toy version, is a good form of encouragement. Toy xylophones, flutes, harmoniums and maracas on are simple instruments that your child can experiment with before moving on to bigger instruments like the guitar or drums.

Pretend Play Accessories
Toys like miniature kitchens, a small blackboard, or a toy medical kit are great things to offer a child, as they drive them to engage in pretend play and let their imaginations run wild. When they pretend to be a doctor, teacher, chef and so on, it develops their creativity in drama and role-playing.

 

 

Developing your child’s creativity is important as creativity is an integral part of social, educational and career progress when your child grows older. So push your child to become more creative by offering them the toys above!

Manhattan Toy Baby Stella Goodnight Pajama Set Baby Doll Clothing
Every baby doll needs at least one change of clothes (or a few), so you can buy them for your little girl. Most baby doll brands come with a clothes line which you can purchase separately, so this may be one of the most convenient accessories to get. Pajama sets are the perfect addition to a baby doll’s wardrobe.

Your little girl will definitely want to give her baby doll a bath from time to time, so play bathtubs are a great accessory to get her. And together with the bathtub you can purchase…

If you don’t want to get your little girl a stroller, a baby sling is a great alternative for a baby doll. This way, your little girl can easily carry her “baby” around on walks!

 
Educational Doctor Medical Kit
Babies do get sick sometimes, so a toy medical kit is a practical accessory for your little girl’s baby doll. You can teach your little girl some basic medical care with this kit too!

 
Little Tikes Shopping Cart
Another popular accessory for baby dolls is the toy shopping cart. Just like a stroller, your little girl can push this little cart around with her baby in it to simulate you when you go shopping.

 

KidKraft Lil’ Doll High Chair
Every baby needs a highchair to be put in during mealtimes, so why should it be any different for your little girl’s baby doll? You don’t have to get a real highchair; there are ones available that specially cater to baby dolls.

 
Little Treasures Miniature Laundry Set
Baby dolls need their clothes and cloth diapers washed, so getting your little girl a laundry play set will definitely delight her! These usually come in a small size so you don’t have to worry about it taking up a lot of space.

 

 

You can choose to get your little girl some of the accessories above, or even all of them if you budget permits. Whatever the case, your little girl will definitely be jumping with joy!
