Fun Christmas Gifts for a Three-Year-Old Girl

by Mira

I have a niece living in Canada. I don’t get to buy her many gifts, but I can see from afar, through photos and videos, what she’s enjoying. This is what she enjoyed at 3.

This won’t be about clothes and make-up, and other things she was enjoying already when she was 3 years old, but about fun toys for kids. Hope to give you some gift ideas for a three-year-old this holiday season.

They include a great tablet for kids, toy kitchens, a toy slide, a wheelbarrow for kids, and a certain present that parents will have lots of fun with as well: a bicycle trailer. Then there’s a plush item, a monkey hat, because, well, my niece makes lots of monkey faces. Some of these gifts are more affordable than others, but they’re all great for a three-year-old, so I hope you find something to your liking and budget.

Toy Kitchen -- They Come in Lots of Colors and Shapes

My niece likes to cook. And she started very early, making attempts at Romanian cabbage rolls, with her parents giggling by her side. So they bought her a toy kitchen. When I saw the video, I was amazed at the idea. Of course, it makes so much sense for a girl to have not only a doll house, but also a kitchen. (I’m not saying that only girls should be raised this way, and neither are the makers of these kitchens.)

Please note that there's a choking hazard for kids under 3, so save this gift for when they are a little older!

Warning and Disclaimer of Liability

Since these kitchens contain small items that can be swallowed, please supervise the kid when she's playing in her kitchen, or make sure someone does. I don't want to be the cause of an unfortunate incident.

Tablet for Small Kids

My niece is also enjoying her tablet.

The Fire 7 Tablet for Kids, released in 2019, comes with a kid-proof case and thousands of apps, games, and books for kids, as well as access to Disney, Netflix, and other content providers.

It also comes with a two-year guarantee. If it breaks, they will replace it.

A three-year-old also likes toy slides. That I could see with more than one kid. My cousins bought my niece a small plastic slide and put it in the living room. She was really excited. It’s also a great way for a kid to expend her energy indoors. And there are toy slides out there that are rather affordable. Of course, when it’s nice outside, it’s even more fun when a kid can enjoy this toy in the backyard.

Speaking of backyard, my niece seems to enjoy gardening. Early on her parents bought her a toy wheelbarrow, which she uses to collect leaves and carry things back and fro. She enjoys this activity quite a lot, too.

And since we got to toys on wheels, her parents bought a bicycle trailer when she was a toddler, and rode on their bikes around the city and parks with the girl in her little cabin on those small two wheels. It all looked pretty amazing when I saw it. I didn’t see anything like it here, and it looked like a ton of fun for the kid. It’s also a great idea for the parents who enjoy biking and want to teach their kid a few things about their eco-friendly world. Wonderful gift in my opinion, and one that the girl’s parents will thank you for if they are the kind you see on their bikes a lot.

Plush Animal Hats

I’ll end this article with one gift I actually was able to buy her, a plush monkey hat similar to the one to the right. If you click on the image you'll be able to see similar hats with 10 other animals: cow, dark and light gray husky, lamb, owl, penguin, pink and purple unicorns, rainbow cow (okay, so three of these animals are magical creatures), and a tiger.

Happy Holidays, and I hope you find your favorite three-year-old toddler a present she will really like!

I'm often wondering how these kids will be as young adults. I worry that too many of them are exposed to the pleasures of technology before they learn to embrace the natural world. But other than that, I think it's good to teach them languages as early as possible.

Mira, The image of your niece making cabbage rolls is enchanting! The chef's kitchen, slide, and wheelbarrow look like such great cooking, exercise, and gardening fun. It's also so important to find the best learning tablet since so many pre-schools start their two-year-olds on computers and Spanish language skills here!

I didn't even have an idea that toy was an option. Of course, it wasn't when I was growing up.

These gifts will definitely make the world of a 2 year old girl happy and wonderful. I dreamt of a kitchen-toy when I was a kid too.

They're so cute. I'm glad you wrote that page, because that's how I thought to send my niece one :)
