How Do I Know What Five Year Old Girls Want For Christmas?
I have a five year old daughter, so I have been listening to what her and all of her friends have been asking Santa for for months now. There are a few popular items that keep coming up amongst the group. I will share them with you below.
Musical, Light-Up Elsa Dress
1. Anything From The Movie Frozen
Even though the movie "Frozen" came out last winter, it is making a comeback since it is a cool weather movie. Elsa, Anna and Olaf are as popular as every and now there are so many toys, dolls, books and movies out!
I bought my daughter an Elsa Dress that lights up and sings. It is beautiful! Any girl would love to wear it while singing to the popular Frozen song "Let It Go".
We also found an Olaf book set that came with an Olaf doll. My daughter loves to hold the doll while we read the book together.

2. Monster High
The Monster High movie "Freaky Fusion" was just released on DVD last month! Now there are all new dolls that have been fused together that you can buy!
Monster High Dolls have been popular for a few years now along with the Ever After dolls.
You can now buy the new Monster High Doll House to house all the Monster High dolls you may have around the house. It is like a Barbie Doll House, that was decorated and designed for Monster High Dolls.
3. Interactive Toys
A few new interactive toys have come out. There is a Zoomer Zuppies, FurReal Friends and Little Live Pets. All are very popular.
I think the most popular might be the FurReal friends dog. It comes with a leash so the 'pet owner' can take it for a walk. It can also follow commands and come when it hears a clap. The dog comes with a free app that contains six games that your child can play also!
Little Live Pets came out with butterflies that really move. When touched, the butterflies come to life and flutter in the child's hand. Some come with butterfly houses. Each one has beautifully marked wings.

4. Arts and Crafts
You can never go wrong with arts and crafts!
Any kind of Fashion Sketch book will keep them happy and busy for hours on end! They can design different outfits with what is provided in the kits. Normally they contain a selection of bottoms, tops, shoes, hats, handbags, sunglasses and jewelry. The child can mix and match the clothes to create different outfits that the paper model can wear.
Sometimes, the actual craft kits can be difficult for their little fingers, but a Shrinky Dinks are great for this age group. Shrinky Dinks are plastic sheets that the child can draw a picture on, color in and decorate how she likes. Once she is finished, it is time to cut the picture out with regular scissors and place them in the oven. As they heat up, they shrink into hard plastic, but they keep the picture that your child drew on them. They can turn the pieces into jewelry. Normally the kits come with a necklace or bracelet that you can attach the shrink dink creation to.
Five year old's are just beginning to read, so find simple books with a great storyline, that is easy for them to read or follow.
Anything by Mo Willems or Sandra Boynton are great. If you could find books about their favorite princesses or characters, it will draw them in. Are they interested in anything in particular. There is a book for everything out there, even in the children's section.
Once again, the most popular books I have been hearing about are children books themed around the movie Frozen.
Just Dance, Disney Party for the Wii
6. Video Games
Though video games are more popular among the boys this age, there are a few sought after games for 5 year old girls.
Again, any game with a Monster High or Frozen theme will be loved!
Any of the Disney, Just Dance video games will be a hit! What 5 year old girl does not like a dance party? Since it is an interactive video game, they will get exercise and hopefully get worn out while playing this game.
