Getting a plugged-in kid to transition from viewing computers, consoles, and tablets as toys to thinking of them as learning tools can be hard, but from toddler to teen — and beyond — learning should never stop. Just a few STEM skills can make it easier to pick up on new technologies as they emerge, as well as making the most of expensive electronics and smart home systems.
Puzzles have never been this much fun! This Design and Drill toy helps children 3 years old and up master fine motor skills, grip strength, and more. With kid-friendly 3D puzzle templates of animals, and the option to create patterns freestyle on the design board, children can play with this puzzle builder in a ton of fun ways.
A 2018 Toy of the Year Award winner, this on-the-go robot is one of five available construction models and is app controlled; finally, a way to make that tablet back into the educational tool it was intended to be. Combine all the fun of a huge Lego build, with over 800 pieces, with a simple interface that helps kids pick up on the basics of coding in a fun, intuitive way.
