At 4 years of age, your little girl is going to be developing at a rapid rate in almost all areas, including speech, language, and walking. She will no longer be interested in baby toys and with her new found confidence, independence and little personality will be on the hunt for toys and gifts to challenge her and help her excel.
At 4, her vocabulary will be increasing at a rapid rate, her speech will be improving and she will be starting to think about new and more challenging concepts. Therefore, toys, puzzles, games, and gifts that help her get to grips with the basics will ensure she is where she should be mentally, physically and emotionally.
