Having a 4 year old daughter, I can certainly relate to GoldieBlox’s mission to empower young girls’ interests in the field of math, engineering, building and constructing. This innovative toy company offers a story + construction set that builds upon girls’ natural ability for storytelling, while at the same time bolstering their desire to learn about building.
The GoldieBlox and the Spinning Machine game has the main character Goldie build a spinning machine to help her dog Nacho chase his tail. This set builds upon problem solving skills and engineering principles with 16 design ideas and option to build endless designs. And if that’s not enough, an expansion pack is now also available. This cool learning toy is a win for both parents and young girls. $29.99, recommended for ages 4-9.
