First youre missing a counter for people, which is 명 Second the sentence structure is the incorrect order, the number of objects should be placed between the subject and verb. Someone would understand this sentence but it isn't grammatical, like "There are little girls eight"
들 is really only added to indicate plurality in situations where it is not clear and needs to be clear. Also, it usually refers to an indefinite number of something.
When a definite number is used, as in the example 여자아이 여덟 명, there is already a clear indication of the number of 여자아이 present.
If the counter and number were absent, 여자아이들 could be used to indicate a group of little girls jumping of an unspecified number.
In general, plurality is given from context. So 들 is only ever used if the plurality cannot be derived from context alone or extra clarification is needed.
