Girls age 10-13 can be a tough age group to buy for. They aren’t kids, but they aren’t in full “teen mode” yet. I’ve learned that you can pretty much never go wrong with crafts or toys that involve creating something.
Top 10 Gifts for Girls Age 10-13
Hasbro Nerf Rebelle Flipside Bow
retails for $24.99
Bow and arrows have become a big item for teens over the past couple of years. A Nerf bow is definitely a safer alternative. The Flipside bow has 2 five-dart drums that flip around for 10-dart fast blasting. Pull the string back and release it to send a dart flying through the air up to 80 feet. A plus is that this bow looks really cool and your tweenage girls are going to love it.

IDO3D Vertical Five Pen Art Set with 3D Vertical Light
