STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—when it comes to toys, STEM toys are focused on learning, creativity, and developing skills that can be applied in real life situations. At ToyVs, our mission is to help kids learn through fun and have fun while learning. We do this through creating a space in which learning and fun go hand in hand.
When children play with STEM toys, they are developing their problem-solving skills, learning how to experiment, and more! We love what the AU School of Education wrote, “When you consider that the skills that STEM toys aim to develop—creativity, logic, problem solving, experimentation, and collaboration— are skills that will help your child succeed in all types of academic and professional pursuits, in STEM and beyond, it’s hard to lose.”
If STEM is focused on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics does that mean it’s only for older children who are already learning these things in school? Nope! The term STEM may seem intimidating as you consider what toys your baby or toddler may enjoy, but the basic premise still relates to them! Even babies can begin problem solving and learning creativity. STEM games, toys, and activities can help a child learn and grow as they discover the world—no matter what age they are.
STEM learning is the way of the future. As our world is constantly progressing with technology, it is incredibly beneficial to start fostering and nurturing a curiosity in children so that they can continue to develop skills that will benefit them in the future.
