Tween age is considered to be one of the most volatile stages of growth for children. It acts as a transition phase into their teenage and as such, it plays a huge role in determining how they grow up to be as a person during that period. Which means this makes for an excellent time to show them, especially tween girls, as much love and appreciation as possible so that they grow up in a caring atmosphere thereby reducing the risk of any unwanted behavioral problems.
Even without all that, it’s just good to sometimes express love towards children in a tangible way by giving them something they can cherish not just for one special day but for the rest of their lives. A gift on a special occasion would be perfect for this of course but selecting an appropriate present for a tween girl could in fact turn out to be quite the challenge.

It’s a great thing to have as company and it also encourages to not only be more expressive with her thoughts but also develop of a habit of writing which is very beneficial.
2. Snap-Pop Beads set
When it comes to women, jewelry is something that is almost universally popular among them.

3. Shengshou Megaminx Speed cube

This one falls in the second category and does the job pretty damn well. This speed cube is a variation of Rubik’s cube that can be solved not once but over and over again while she tries to beat her previous record.
The chosen colors are relatively attractive and would make for a good fidgeting tool or even a show piece whenever she doesn’t feel like playing with it. Overall a good tween birthday gift.

It’s not easy to get young girls to get to bed early and sleep. There’s usually a lot of convincing to do before they finally give in and go to bed.
