Top Gift Picks for Older Toddler to Tween

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Buying for the littlest kiddos is a piece of cake. That is not always true for the older ones. Sometimes buying for them can be a bit challenging, especially since their tastes and preferences at that age seem to change so quickly. Some things though, are staple items that are timeless and always well loved. For boys, my top pick is the Discovery Galactic Fizzing Dig from Horizon Group USA. Of course, girls will love this one too, but my boys always had a natural bent for experimentation and discovery. This kit piques a natural love of discovering their inner archaeologist as they unearth 6 real gemstones included in the kit. It is recommended for ages 12+

  • Exciting reveals: dig your way through vibrant and fun shaped digs or place them into a bowl of water and watch a fizz, pop and bubble Reaction take place to reveal the gemstones
  • Learn to use excavation tools: 3 excavation tools included to get a real feel for digging and chiseling away
  • Fun fizzing dig shapes: Includes 3 colorful and fun shaped fizzing digs including a planet fizz dig, an asteroid fizz dig, and Star fizz dig
  • Identify gemstones: take a closer look at the patterns and colors of each gemstone using the magnifying glass like a true Gemologist

The Squishy Diary from It's So Me! is recommended for children ages 6+, but I can see tween girls loving it oh so very much as well. The inside has 60 lined sheets of paper to write your most personal thoughts. Stickers and a unicorn pen are also included. It's the squishy soft pink unicorn cover that will really have the gals swooning. My granddaughter is 6 and she would LOVE this. My niece is 12 and she would love it too, equally, if not more!

  • Express yourself as you pen down personal goals, cherished memories, and exciting stories with the It’s So Me Squishy Unicorn Diary!
  • Squeeze and squish your unicorn cover, as you open up your diary to reveal 60 lined sheets all about you!

Both of these ideas are great for gift giving. I am happy to recommend them both to you!


  1. How fun! This like this are important, for any childhood. Mica would have loved the space one.

  2. Sure sound like both are great gifts. The first will sure get the minds a going.

  3. That squishy diary is sooo cute! My bestie has a 7 year old girl that would LOVE it! I'm sending her this link now in case she wants to add another gift to that child's ever growing pile :)
