Barbie Dream Horse & Blonde Doll
We have seen some fantastic products as part of the Barbie line, but this one here, the Barbie Dream Horse, is something that little girls are really going to love. To start with the actual Barbie doll looks great. She is in her full riding gear which includes a nice jacket, boots and of course a helmet for safety.
However, the real star of this set though, is Barbie’s horse. You can put Barbie on the back of the horse and let Barbie ride the horse herself! That is right at the touch of a button, Barbie’s horse will walk around with Barbie on its back.
The Barbie Dream Horse has over 30 different horse actions and Barbie can feed it some carrots (which are included) once their ride is finished.
Kids love Barbie and if your child has been looking for some kind of fun and interactive accessory for Barbie, you really cannot go wrong with this.
Minion MiP Turbo Dave – Fun Balancing Robot Toy
Kids love the Minions and now thanks to this awesome, Minion MiP Turbo Dave, your child can have their very own one! Dave is one of the coolest minions and now when he is connected to your kid’s tablet or smartphone, he can do all kinds of crazy stuff.
You can make Dave do all kinds of fun things like having a Fart Blaster Battle, zoom around like crazy and even teach her basic STEM coding. Dave will even react to being touched and spoken too!
Dave is a ton of fun, but he does also have plenty of educational value as well. One of the coolest things that Dave can do is his sound effects, there are over 140 and they are taken right out of the movies!
While this may look like just another Minion toy, this is actually pretty high tech and something any Minion fan would be thrilled to get.
Girls Only! Secret Message Lab by SmartLab Toys
Little girls love to have secrets with their friends and now with the Girls Only! Secret Message Lab they can write secret messages to their friends and mom and dad will not be able to read them!
The idea of this set is that your child will write down a super secret message that appears to be invisible. The only way to read this is for their best friend to use a super secret device that will reveal the ink! Of course this is a lot of fun, but this set also teaches your kids about the science behind how this invisible ink works and we think that is really cool.
Two kits are included with this set so your child can have one and give the other to a friend they need to share secret messages with.
Make Clay Charms Craft Kit by Klutz
Girls love to be able to make jewelry and now with this awesome Make Clay Charms Craft Kit your child can have a great time making all kinds of fun things. They can make charm bracelets, hoops, rings and pretty much anything they can think of.
Included with this set are 9 colors of clay and different tools to help them sculpt and shape the clay into all kinds of cool shapes.
One thing your child will find very handy is the guide book that is included with this kit. This 60 page book has all kinds of fun ideas for them to make. Many children have a creative spark and we feel that this set is a great way to encourage that. Parents, grandparents and friends will have lots and lots of awesome clay charms to look forward to for their next birthdays and Christmases.

Girls Leopard Print Backpack
This Girls Leopard Print Backpack is a great gift idea for an 8 year old girl. We found and think it’s something not only cool and fashionable but also very practical.
It is the perfect bag for school as it is a nice size, comfortable to wear and the leopard design along with that glittering cat emoji is really cute and something she’ll think is cool.
There is a double zip on the large compartment and there’s also a smaller compartment on the front of the backpack.
While we love the leopard print design, this style of backpack actually comes in 5 other designs which are denim, neon berry, neon lilac, princess pink and simply white, each one has their own style so be sure to have a good look and think about what one goes with her personality best.
At right around 20 bucks, this is one of those gifts for 8 year old girls that is great value for money and also something she’s going to get a lot of use out of.

Roarin’ Tyler, the Playful Tiger
Roarin’ Tyler, the Playful Tiger is one of many interactive toys on the market right now, but Tyler definitely is one of the smartest and cutest and we are sure any child will love him right away.
Tyler is nice and soft and at first glance, you may think he is just an ordinary stuffed tiger. But Tyler can do many, many different things. He has over 100 actions, interactions and sayings that he can do!
What’s really awesome about this is that when you’re playing with Tyler. You’re never going to know exactly what Tyler is going to say or do next. This makes playtime with Roarin’ Tyler, the Playful Tiger even more fun.
Plus it gets even better when you mix Tyler’s little bird friend into the mix. Not only is your child going to have lots of fun with this, so are you as you watch them play.
Snap Circuits Jr Electronics Discovery Kit by Elenco
When it comes to gifts for 8 year old girls we know that this one may seem a little strange. But we feel that the Snap Circuits Jr Electronics Discovery Kit is something that really would be fantastic for a little lady who has an interest in science.
The idea behind this smart STEM toy is that your child will get to build her very own circuit. They can make an alarm, a little helicopter and over 100 other circuits that can all do cool things. What makes this such a great gift is the fact that this is not just fun, it is also educational. Each piece of the circuit is a different color so your child will be learning about electricity as they play.
We always think learning through playing is great and with over 30 different parts and a good sized circuit board, a girl is going to have a lot of fun with this. One thing to mention is the fact that this requires no soldering or anything like that. They just snap the pieces on and off the board and that is that.
Barbie Careers Game Developer Doll
We can honestly say that we are not exaggerating or over selling when we say that this Barbie Careers Game Developer Doll is one of the most inspirational dolls on the market right now.
Barbie is an all time classic and getting a Barbie doll is like a rite of passage for all girls. What we love about this one from the Barbie Careers line is the way it is a video game developer.
More and more girls are playing video games, but not enough are involved in the actual industry. So if you have a girl who loves to play video games then this doll could very well inspire her to want to learn more about how video games are made.
Also this is one really cool Barbie doll. She comes with a headset, tablet, gaming t shirt and a cool set of pants and a jacket! If your child loves Barbie then she will really love this one.
Height Adjustable Children’s Desk & Chair Set
This ultra cool looking children’s desk and chair set it is something they will have a lot of fun with and also something that they will be able to use for many years thanks to it being fully adjustable. It is actually said that teens can use this. So that is a lot of years of use.
The modern looking pink set is made with a solid steel frame and the chair is covered with comfortable padding so it is that perfect blend of being strong, long lasting and also very comfortable.

Electronic Drum Kit with Drumsticks & Built-In Learning Tools by Alesis
A real drum kit is one of those things that sounds like a great idea, but then you realize that it takes up a ton of space, costs a lot of money and is very, very loud! However the Electronic Drum Kit with Drumsticks & Built-In Learning Tools by Alesis is the next best thing.
The four drum pads provide as close a sound to real drums as possible. There is also a ton of different sound effects, drum styles and songs that can be used. As a matter of fact there is a number of different things that your child can tinker with here to make a truly epic rock ballad!
One of the things we really like about this electronic drum kit is the way that it can teach your child how to play. It has some really impressive and fun learning tools that make learning how to keep time and a good beat very simple. Oh this also has a headphone jack as well so when you have had enough, you can get them to put in some headphones.
Face Painting Set, 12 Colors, 2 Brushes, 2 Face Tattoos, 3 Face Paint Stencils
Kids love face painting and the Face Painting Set we have here is one of the best. All of the items in this set are child safe and the 12 colors that are included are kept in a really neat little carry case. Actually little is not a good word as this has far more paint than other similar priced face painting kits.
Also included is a couple of easy to clean paint brushes one small and the other quite thick. If that was not enough they also included three stencils and two sets of temporary tattoos!
If you have a creative child then this is something that we can assure you they will really like. Plus the asking price is very reasonable so it would make for a fantastic extra gift.

Googly Eyes Game by Goliath Games
There is not enough cool board games these days, but one that we do feel is a lot of fun for the whole family is the Googly Eyes Game.
Think of this as a more extreme version of Pictionary. You do have to draw all kinds of things in this game as you try to make your way to the end of the board so that your team wins. But your skills will be impaired by the Googly Eye Glasses that you have to wear. Not only do you have to wear the glasses, but depending on how you roll, you will have to wear a certain kind of crazy lenses as there are three different lenses in this game. Each one with their own weird and funny effect.
A huge part of the fun is your team trying to guess just what the heck it is you have drawn. If you are looking for a game that is an absolute blast to play and will involve the whole family and a lot of laughter. Then you will struggle to top this!
