The best in STEM toys

What are STEM toys?

Stem stands for: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. STEM toys focus on teaching and building these skills in children’s brains. A good STEM toy will both challenge your child and still be fun. When choosing a STEM toy for your child, make sure to choose one that lines up with their current age and skill level, not the skill level you want them to be at. If you buy them a very challenging STEM toy, they will likely get frustrated with it and not want to use it at all. If it’s not challenging enough, it won’t really stimulate that part of their brain. Sometimes, it’s good to start easier and get more challenging.

CozyBomB Monkey Math Game

This STEM game is great because it teaches basic math formulas in a logical manor to children. Instead of looking at numbers on a page, children will be able to logically relate numerical numbers to physically numbered toys. It helps teach addition and subtraction to little ones even before they will learn about it in school! Ages 3 – 5. Click here to shop

Matching Eggs Game for Babies

It’s never too early to teach these skills to children. Children need to match up the shapes in order to close the eggs and then fit them in the container. I especially like that all the pieces go back into a container. No ones likes it when toys have no place to go. Because they end up everywhere! Click here to shop

Magnetic Maze Game

This spells “game for the car” to me. No parts that can be removed from the game, easy enough to use on rough roads and just enough to keep them entertained for quite a while. With this game, the magnet pen pulls the ball through the maze and around the roundabout. Lot’s of fun. Ages 2 and up. Click here to shop
