I always thought when I had a daughter I’d be up to my elbows in nail polish, sparkly hair bows and Barbies. I should have known the moment Eva came roaring into this world, loudly letting everyone know that she had arrived, that my girl wasn’t going to be the typical princess. She lives to spend her days outside digging for treasure or dinosaur bones. When given the choice between joining dance or a sport, she chose Karate. She gets excited to learn new things and create new inventions of her own. She loves to let her imagination run wild whether she’s drawing, painting, or reading a book. Unlike most kids, I never find her in front of the TV.
Being her Mom has been one of the greatest adventures of my life! She is fiercely independent, never apologizes for being herself, and stands up for what she believes in. She is a different kind of princess altogether, and I love her for it. Though she’s easy to love, she’s not so easy to shop for! If you have a Tomboy of your own, you probably understand the struggle of gifts like I do. Whether it’s birthdays or Christmas, I’m always wracking my brain trying to come up with gift ideas for Eva. I’ve finally put together a list of 5 gifts I know your tomboy will love – because mine loved every single one!
Best Gifts For Tomboys
Are you shopping for a tomboy? She's going to love this list of great gift ideas that we've assembled!
This LEGO Super Mario Adventures Starter Course is the perfect LEGO gift for a tomboy! I remember playing Mario as a girl myself - it was one of my favorite video games ever! I was the bomb at Super Mario Bros 3 on the original NES!
In this LEGO playset, LEGO Mario collects virtual coins as he runs and jumps from the Start Pipe to the Goal Pole via LEGO bricks, cloud platforms, the Question Mark Block and clashes with the Goomba figure and Bowser Jr. LEGO Mario has a color sensor, plus LCD screens in his eyes, mouth, and belly to display over 100 different instant reactions to movement. Also included is a speaker that plays iconic sounds and music from the video game. A free LEGO Super Mario app is also available for enhanced play!
It's always great to add some expansion packs after you have the starter set. LEGO Super Mario Toad's Treasure Hunt Expansion Set is a great addition to your starter course!
Players must defeat enemies and overcome challenges in Toad Village with this LEGO Super Mario™Toad’s Treasure Hunt Expansion Set (71368). It features cute Toad and Toadette toy figures, 2 Cheep Cheeps, and a Goomba. A bridge and sliding and rotating platforms must be overcome to get to the 1, 2, 3 Blocks in the Toad Houses, the tree, and the treasure chest.
Another great expansion pack idea is the LEGO Super Mario King Boo and the Haunted Yard. Kids will love the frightful challenges in this King Boo and the Haunted Yard Expansion Set. It features King Boo, 2 Goombas, and 4 Swoop figures for action-packed gameplay. To get to the hidden Super Star, players must stomp on Goombas and a spider web, flip a tree, and then stomp the spinning Swoops to topple King Boo.
Your tomboy will love both building and playing with the LEGO Mario sets!
Kids everywhere can unleash their inner ninja at the next party, sleepover, or group gathering with the help of this epic glow-in-the-dark sword fight game!
The Glow Battle Ninja Game from Starlux Games lets players and their families have the best, safest sword fights around. With ten different variations, this is a game that encourages everyone to play together.
Players arm themselves with (harmless) foam weapons then face off with one another in games like Knights of Old, Gladiators—or even make up their own game for endless fun!
The iconic arcade game of the 80's is back, in miniature size and tomboys everywhere will love it!
Meet Mappy, the authoritative mouse who is dressed like a police officer.
As you play Mappy, your mission is to patrol each house and reclaim property stolen by arch enemies. There'll be running and jumping from platform to platform and the higher you climb, the more challenging this games gets!
Real working archery toy bow and arrow set. Comes with 3 suction cup arrows, a mini round target to shoot at, and a quiver to hold your arrows. A great way to introduce the fun sport of archery to young children. A complete set of outdoor toys for kids to play with friends and have a competitive game of archery. Recommend age 6 and above.
Laser Pegs is the light up construction system that sparks children's imagination and creativity! With Laser Pegs, there is no limit to what you can create!
Create four different helicopters from this one Helicopter set. Choose which one you want to assemble first: the Autogyro, the Pusher Concept, the Skycrane, or the Transport Chopper. Hop on the chopper and take a flight, you’re in charge!
These sets offer children and young adults a fun alternative to the traditional construction toy as Laser Pegs illuminates its surroundings thanks to their patented light bricks and vibrant colors.
From Mega Trucks to Race Cars, Dinosaurs to Farm Animals -- the possibilities with Laser Pegs are endless!
I love the Lego Super Mario Bros set! My kids don't really have the same love for Mario that I have having grown up with Nintendo. I think my hubby and I would enjoy that Lego set even more than the kids would!
