When my 10 year old went to summer camp, she had to take an instant camera because phones were not allowed. When she came back, we found it was difficult to find a place that developed the film!
A Polaroid camera would fix this problem, and this particular model is very budget-friendly and girly!
A lot of parents buy LEGOs for boys, but less often for girls. I don’t love everything about the LEGO “girl” line, but I know this roller coaster set would delight my 10 year old girl from start to finish.
My daughter’s grandfather picked this up for her as a “just because” gift, and she has experimented with making various Spirograph designs for weeks.
Many tween girls I know are SUPER into Minecraft. My girls have several of the Minecraft LEGO sets and they love them. This version comes with zombies, which is totally cool.
If you buy this for your daughter and she has never shot you before: beware. Nerf guns can hurt. The maniacal sounds of laughter as she hits her chosen target (probably you) are totally worth the momentary pain.
A Christmas or two ago, my in-laws bought the entire family a Nerf gun each, and it was the best Christmas ever.

Makey Makey is a silly name, but an incredibly cool concept. You can transform everyday objects into music makers, game controllers, and a lot more!
My tween has been begging us for a laptop for months. I like this version because it not only acts like a laptop, but the keyboard is detachable so you can also used it like a tablet.
The small size is perfect for tween-sized kids. The pink color is also very tween girl-friendly.
A lot of tween girls love to cook, and the Master Chef Junior set is perfect for tweens (especially if they have watched the show!).
If your daughter is into crafts, you cannot go wrong with a tie dye kit!
My 10 year old insisted that I put this Nerf bow on the list. She thinks most girls her age would love it.
Things that light up are totally cool. They are even cooler when a 10 year old girl can build the circuits herself.
This is a great starter telescope for a girl who is interested in learning more about space.
10 year old girls these days seem to like things that light up and flash a lot, like this light-up helicopter.
