The 10 Best Toys For 11-Year-Old Girls

11 years old marks the end of middle childhood years. As they approach reaching the milestones in middle childhood and begin to prepare for becoming a young teen and adolescence, what are the interests of an 11-year-old girl? Let's find out more about this developmental stage and what toys are great options for 11-year-old girls.

Middle Childhood Development Milestones

By age 11, you'll notice your daughter has grown some independence from the family. They start to prioritize their friendships, which is important! But with this, they might also be experiencing peer pressure. Children who are confident and feel good about themselves typically have the ability to resist bad peer pressure allowing them to make good choices. This stage is important so that they can gain a sense of responsibility and step into who they are as a person.

During middle childhood for girls, they may also start to experience some physical changes as puberty approaches. This is a time of many mental, emotional, physical, and social changes. For some, these changes can start happening in the earlier years of middle childhood and for others, it might not happen until they are a young teen.
