Have you heard of GoldieBlox​? I received a GoldieBlox and the Spinning Machine set from The School Shop​, and my daughter loves her new STEM toy. If you are a searching for a building toy that emphasizes STEM concepts for girls and is also fun for boys, I highly recommend GoldieBlox and the Spinning Machine. I especially love that the toy comes with a storybook, which taps into the strong verbal skills of girls to teach engineering skills.
Extremely positive review of GoldieBlox and the Spinning Machine provided by The School Shop.
