Children who reach their fourth birthday gain independence, prepare for a learning environment and start school. Toys are a great way to encourage a four-year-old to learn new skills, from using imagination and creativity to practicing practical skills like handwriting and lace binding. The following 15 are the best toys for 4 year old girls! Yes, these toys are great for boys too, but our little testers were all little girls. Here were her favorites that mom and dad loved too.
These toys are also great for teaching teamwork, playing with others, and gaining their own independence through independent play and study. They show how toys can help your little one learn important skills. You focus on everything from imagination, creativity, learning, teamwork, and independence.

You will be able to use this thing for years. Mothers and fathers love KidKraft because they are very well built and will last for years.
There is also the option to use something like this princess castle pop-up tent for indoor use. The princess tent is a great companion for dressing up. It’s also a unique way to create an independent play space in a common room.
