GoldieBlox $30 ** Not available until spring 2013

Combining spatial and verbal learning, GoldieBlox is a book and construction toy based around Goldie, the girl inventor, and her group of friends, who go on adventures and solve problems by building simple machines.

Although this won’t ship until spring 2013, I thought it was worth including in this collection of science, technology, engineering, and math toys. Please share your favorite STEM toys in the comments!

  1. Great list! Thanks for sharing. My STEM gift list is smaller, but has some overlap with yours. It’s at http://www.themakermom.com/2012/11/hot-holiday-stem-gifts-for-kids-ps-im.html

    I have absolutely nothing to add to the list at this time, but I just wanted to say thank you. These are incredibly awesome ‘toys’ and though all my holiday shopping is done, every item here has made my christmas list for my kids next year. (boy 9 girl 5)
    The most I could come up with myself this year were a telescope, carnivorous plant system, triops, k’nex roller coaster, and a robot building kit.
    These are so much more awesome! thank you!!!!
