As girls turn 3-years-old, they go from being ‘toddlers’ to being ‘pre-schoolers’ this may coincide with beginning pre-school or moving into a pre-school class within their usual childcare setting. The transition from toddler to pre-schooler isn’t always smooth, leading to behaviour more often associated with teenagers. Emotions run high at age 3, and 3-year-olds are quick to express their thoughts, feeling and opinions. Whilst this can be a little difficult to navigate it’s a great sign that they are developing as they should be.

Along with this expressive nature comes lots of creativity and a burgeoning imagination. 3-year-olds, like most young children, still need plenty of time outdoors and lots of physical activity; allowing children the freedom to run, climb, and jump is essential. Pre-schoolers need to practice their physical skills to develop strength, balance and coordination. If you are searching for a gift for a 3-year-old girl there are plenty of toys and gifts to choose from, but we’ve brought together 30 of the best, that will help to support their development.

Thirteen marks the beginning of the dreaded teenage years; as a child turns 13, they begin a mental shift in their self-perception. No longer do they see themselves as a child but instead they begin to adopt that “teenager” label. A 13-year-old boy may begin to feel more independent during this time and will certainly want to have their opinion heard and exercise increasing amounts of control over their body, their environment and their need for privacy.

In some ways this makes buying a gift easier as they express quite clear interests and you can purchase something that fits in with these. Many 13-year-olds still desire affirmation from adults, and care about what grown-ups think of them despite expressing the contrary! Choosing a gift that reflects a 13-year-old’s interests and abilities as well as opening up new skills is a great way of showing your approval. We’ve put together a list of 30 gifts that will appeal to 13-year-old boys.
