Welcome to HCM.
You should absolutely ignore it and never let your daughter know that you have detected it. There is no harm in letting her enjoy with it. Better toy than real thing.
You should of course be care full to observe whom all she meets and take special care to see that she does not spend the evenings outside home in unfamiliar company.
You should have an eye on her activities and where required give subtle warning to her of consequences such as unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.
Do not try to be very strict otherwise it will have exactly the opposite action of what you intend. These things need to be handled very carefully and tacitly.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
It is perfectly normal for a teen to start masturbating. It is a normal expression of her sexuality as a young girl. Not to worry. She isn't doing anything wrong. It would be best to be open minded in this situation. You can educate her about safe sex and use of condoms when it is the right time. It is requested that you be supportive and understanding in this regard and handle your daughter's situation with appropriate discretion. GOOD LUCK !!!!
