This holiday season, get your girl away from technology and into a building, creative mood. Maplewood’s Shenanigans Toys owner Erin Lundstrom recommends GoldieBlox building sets and BE Amazing Science Kits as two great holiday toy gifts aimed at helping girls be more successful and engaged builders.
By tapping into their strong verbal skills, GoldieBlox gets girls to construct amazing things. Says founder Debbie Sterling, “In a world where men largely outnumber women in science, technology, engineering and math, girls lose interest in these subjects as early as age 8. Construction toys develop an early interest in these subjects, but for over a hundred years, they’ve been considered ‘boys’ toys.’ GoldieBlox is determined to change the equation. We aim to disrupt the pink aisle and inspire the future generation of female engineers.”
“GoldieBlox and the Dunk Tank” (shown above) is $19.95.
