Gift for a 4 year old girl?

I have a niece who will be 4 soon. I wound up getting two gifts and need to return one of them. The first thing I got was a Fisher Price Little People girl on a scooter with a puppy and a My Little Pony. Today I went to the mall with my step-daughter and we went to the disney store. They had the princess dolls that are kinda like barbies on sale for $8 (usually $12) and they had they had dress up costumes on sale for $10 (usually $40). So I wound up buying her a Snow White doll and a Snow White dress up dress, cuz I thought it was a nicer gift for only a couple of $$ more. The only thing is, do 4 year olds like to play dress up? I have a son who's nearly 3 and he HATES to change clothes, period! He'd rather stay in pjs all day than have to change his clothes, which makes me wonder if my niece may not be into dressing up? So, which thing should I return, and which thing should I give to her?

  • You did good on both gifts ! They like, to make-believe, with dressing up. Jenna has My Lil Pony's, and Barbie, and even Polly Pocket, and they all play together.

  • My little girl is 4 and loves dressing up in dress-up clothes. She doesn't like trying on clothes at the store or changing clothes to go to the grocery store, but she loves putting on a ballerina dress or a princess dress and being a princess. She has play ballet slippers, tiaras, magic wands, and play jewelry even. Sometimes she adds my stuff with it. She will even wear one of my husband's tshirts and a call it a dress cause it touches the floor on her.
    All of those sound like great gifts, and none will be a miss.
