STEMLearning toys do more than sit there and entertain—they stimulate and teach kids by introducing them to basic coding concepts and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). They help kids develop a wide range of skills, from critical thinking and problem-solving to the basics of engineering and the scientific method.
Writing for Stanford University’s Development and Research in Early Math Education, Alissa A. Lange, Ph.D., shares that even preschool-age children show focus, engagement, and enjoyment while playing and participating in age-appropriate STEM learning activities.
Providing open-ended, imaginative, fun opportunities, STEM toys introduce new ideas, reinforce foundational concepts, and stoke kids’ curiosity and creativity.
I love these toys and games for kids of all ages (as young as 6 months) because they’re fun—especially Rush Hour!—but simultaneously stimulate learning through creativity and mind-challenging play. Kids won’t want to put these down.
