Fun & Unique Stocking Stuffers for Tweens

Do you look at your child and wonder when those legs got so long?

When did those precious cheeks lose their delightfully round and squishy quality? If you find yourself watching them do something with confidence you had no idea they could do, you just might have a tween!

Tweens are defined as children ages 9-12 who are in the process of leaving childhood and entering adolescence.

In short, it means your baby is becoming a teenager, mama! They may not love the toys they once obsessed over and are experimenting with new interests and styles. It’s as exciting as it is sad, but make no mistake! They ARE still a kid and most definitely still want “Santa” to stuff their stockings full of goodies this Christmas!
