Things that little girls like

Evening all

I am making some things for a pre-school craft fair. These include keyrings, badges, hair clips, earrings etc all with little motifs on. As I am the proud owner of three DS I am pretty au fait with things that small boys like. Small girls, not so much. I know that someone out there is going to tell me that superheroes, Minecraft, Star Wars etc are not solely reserved for boys but I do need to add some nice stereotypical girly things to my range. Thus far I have identified the following random ideas: characters from Frozen (mainly Elsa), hearts, cupcakes, birds, flowers, Hello Kitty, My Little Pony, other assorted Disney princesses (are any more popular than others?), rainbows and assorted woodland animals. Is there anything obvious that I'm missing which your 3-6 year old girl is keen on?

Mermaids and dolphins usually go down quite well, fairys, toadstools as well, have fun!

At 3-6 DD would have killed for Star Wars Hair Clips!
Probably still would tbh.

Rainbows or moshis, mainly.
And not pink- yellow, green, orange.

Fairies, horses, owls, dinosaurs,

Disney Princess: Belle, Ariel, Cinderella are the favourites here.

Moshi Monsters
Doc McStuffins

My almost 3yo is fairly fairy mad, she also loves pirates - especially girl pirates, mermaids, dragon's, gnomes.

My four yr old likes Care Bears, Moshi Monsters and anything that sparkles smile

My four year old is into dinosaurs, pirates, animals, flowers, monsters, robots.

Pirates every time

Rhubarbgarden Mon 01-Sep-14 21:23:03

Oh and octonauts. Actually, every four year old I know is obsessed with octonauts at the moment.

Definitely unicorns.

Actually, I'd be tempted by some Minecraft hair clips!

Seriously though, there's a big gap in the market for non-stereotypical accessories. Every other shop sells Disney Princess clips, but non-extortionate, non-Etsy Star Wars etc are like gold dust.

Peppa Pig, although Minnie Mouse/Daisy Duck are threatening the prime role!

Rainbows and anything sparkly.

DD1 is nearly 4.

Animals- cats, dogs, rabbits, frogs, fish (nemo type things expecially), turtles, seahorses, dolphins etc as well as butterflies and ladybirds

Mine loves everything on your list-especially elsa, hearts and rainbows.
Wrt princesses I think rapunzel, Ariel and Sofia are popular at the moment.
My little pony seems to be growing in popularity.
A lot of the girls in her class like minions and Moshi monsters and a couple are into batman but I have been 'blessed' with a stereotypical 'girly girl'-she doesn't get it from me!

rockybalboa Mon 01-Sep-14 22:34:38

Thank you, lots of helpful ideas!

rockybalboa Mon 01-Sep-14 22:36:26

PS I've never heard of Princess Sofia! Off to Google to educate myself. Googling My Little Pony has been interesting, seems they have more of an appeal than just little girls shock They don't look like they did when I was little either!

NorksEnormous Mon 01-Sep-14 22:36:44

Definately peppa, doc mcstuffins and sofia the first. Dd also LOVES ben&holly. Olaf is her favourite frozen character, she wants a snowman costume! grin

wellthatsdoneit Mon 01-Sep-14 22:41:16

And also, Frozen.

SaucyJack Mon 01-Sep-14 22:44:23

My two (and most of their friends) are both obsessed with Monster High- but it's more of a school aged toy than a pre-school thing.

erin99 Mon 01-Sep-14 22:44:57

You've got Frozen. Sorted.

Also you could put the motifs on ribbon to make bracelets or necklaces.

Matildasmam22 Mon 01-Sep-14 22:48:54

Peppa, Ben and holly and jake and the never land pirates. I hear the theme tunes in my sleep

gingee Tue 02-Sep-14 01:39:59

Mine likes unicorns, my little pony, cats, small fluffy dogs, ballerinas, Mike The Knight, Bubble Guppies, picnics (I don't know how you represent this on a badge/hair clip haha), Frozen, squirrels, dancing, cakes and baking, and Clash of Clans
