It’s never too early to introduce kids to STEM, but you should be aware of the recommended ages before investing in a toy or activity. Consider your child’s fine and gross motor skills since many STEM toys require careful manipulation of parts and pieces. You should also think about your child’s attention span and whether their interest is in constructing the toy or using it.
1. Education – USA, World, Capitals Mapology

2. Learn to Code for Kids for iPad
Help your child develop the nack for coding with fun with OSMO. Let your kids have fun while they learn the Logic, coding fundamentals, basics of programming, solve coding puzzles, teamwork, listening, critical thinking, observation, creative problem solving, music creation & pattern recognition. Osmo sees and reacts to real-life movement. Geared towards children & love of learning.
(Customer review: I got this for a 5-year old that is highly interested in tinkering/building big Lego sets, and generally quite interested in science. He does have a good attention span for a 5-year-old, which I think always helps with this sort of toy. Now, as for the toy, as usual with Osmo the toy pieces intended for the kid to manipulate are very high quality, so the only issue is keeping one from getting lost. As for the games…I was an engineering major in college and had no intro to coding before I “had” to take the course and learn it. I actually think it’s a great idea to expose kids who are into science early, and there aren’t too many ways to do it. The kid I bought this for had just had his STEM coding summer camp canceled due to COVID. I really appreciate the goal of this product.)
3. STEM Solar Toy
Build a constructive mindset in children at a young age with Solar Power Robots Creation Toy. The toy helps you in the development of the creative mindset and problem-solving skills of your child.
The toy comes with a user manual that has instructions to build 13 different types of robots by splitting and reassembling that move on land or water.
(Customer Review: This was a great building toy for my daughter. She loves anything construction where she gets to follow directions and build toys. The solar-powered part of this was another great addition so we didn’t have to burn through batteries.
Overall a really great purchase! )
4. Gravity Maze Marble Run – STEM
Your child can learn as they play with this amazing skill-building game Gravity Maze Marble Run. The game has different challenges for your kids that help your kid build spatial reasoning and planning skills.
(Customer Review: y 10-year-old son is obsessed with this game. He loves figuring out each maze. It makes him use problem-solving skills and logic. This is a great toy for an only child whose parents can’t entertain the child every minute. He chooses this over video games! Now that is saying something.)
5. STEM Building Block Kids Toy
As your kid grows up it is important to start learning how to create coordination between the eyes and hands. With the help of this toy, your child will inspire creativity, develop hand-eye coordination and expand kids’ learning possibilities.
(Customer Review: So many toys are electronic right now and I love that this toy is so good for developmental skills. It’s great for bimanual hand use, hand strengthening, visual-motor, etc. You can free build or follow the directions and steps. It also comes with Its own storage container which is always a BONUS! It’s fun and keeps my kiddos engaged and busy!)

It turns your device into a hands-on learning system and takes your kids through a series of story-based challenges that need to be solved with a combination of numbers and arithmetic operators
(Customer Review: Shifu Plugo Count is by far the best ipad game my students have engaged in. I teach first grade and was able to project the iPad with the projector system to the whole class. My students wrote the problems on their personal whiteboards and I chose one student to use the game pieces to solve the problem. The excitement was unreal. What we loved most about this system was that there is variety. I loved that they had word problems for students to understand when it is appropriate to add and subtract. I ensured we were using keywords such as “total”, “left”, and “altogether”, to help us understand the number sentences. I also appreciated that the word problems allowed you to either answer in a word problem form or as the answer. For example, if the problem was “I water 3 roses and 4 daisies. How many flowers did I water altogether?”. You could either answer 3+4 or 7. I would love to try the other available systems by Shifu.)
8. Mathematics Game –Multiplication, Division, Addition, and Subtraction
For today’s generation, workbooks cant be enough, the monotonous ways of teaching the numbers may risk the interest and retention power of the child and so ADSUMUDI is a great alternative to the entire learning experience. It’s a perfect travel game that will keep your child engaged for a longer duration.
(Customer Review: Quick math game and easy to pick up and play. Fast to learn and play when you’ve got 10-15 minutes before dinner or on game nights. Really efficient in getting those skills down and great for Title 1 learners. Good gifts for teachers and classrooms. Good for school raffles or gift baskets. A lot of fun for kids to learn math. My kids enjoy playing together and seeing how far they can take the math problems.)
9. Card Game : Guess in 10
The questions and answer format of this card game helps your child to develop communication skills, decision-making, problem-solving, and creative thinking skills. Along with all this, the retention period of your child is enhanced. It’s a great way of teaching your child about the animal kingdom and other nature-related topics.
(Customer Reviews: At first we thought this was going to be WAY too easy for our 7 year old but when we actually started playing with her I realized how much she actually had to learn about how to ask good questions (there’s a difference between “does it bark?” And “is it a mammal?”) and while she’s pretty up on animal knowledge it’s still been a fun challenge for her even with the clues! I want to buy the city one once we have studied geography a bit more. Ps we use these at dinner for fun discussion when the day is getting long and we’re tired of talking to each other.)
Nurture your child’s brain with brain teaser games and increase their retention power and decision-making skills and decision making. In this game, there is a sequence of light that blinks for some time and then the player has to light up the pattern again by recalling the earlier pattern.
(Customer Review: BrainBolt is the perfect game for my son. He has an amazing memory and loves to challenge it! He loves the different levels of play with this game so he doesn’t get bored! Since it is so portable…we take it everywhere with us…on road trips, on the way to school, doctor’s office, and even to the grocery store. I love that it is educational and it is helping grow his brains! It’s a fun game that keeps my 8-year-old son really entertained!)

12.4M 4605 Water Rocket Kit
Is your kid interested in space or rockets? well then, this game is meant for your kid. With the help of water pressure, the rocket goes up to 90ft in the air. The game will build the bond between you and your kid. 🙂
(Customer Review: liked how the KISS principle was utilized to construct the water rocket. I was once a judge at a high school science fair where there was a water rocket competition and had the opportunity to inspect many unique pressurizations and release ideas, but this has to be the simplest method yet. A single hole stopper (plug), provides a means to seal the bottle and pressurize it through the stopper hole. When the pressure is great enough to expel the stopper the water is blasted out of the bottle and it launches. No O-rings, washers, release paws, pull chords, etc. As a result, my 7-year-old grandson, can fill the bottle, put the stopper in place, stand the rocket on its tail fins, pump pressure into it with a tire pump, watch it fly, and do it again and again all by himself while I supervise for safety reasons. The more firmly the stopper is inserted into the bottleneck the greater is the pressure required to expel the stopper, and this greater pressure propels the bottle rocket higher. We have achieved flight times of greater than 10 seconds, and heights well over the advertised 90 ft when his father pressed the stopper in as much as he could. As for my grandson, he is very happy even though when he does it, it only flies to about 50 feet. This is a great science toy for learning. I posed the question ” How high would the rocket go if we did not put water in it ?”, My grandson promptly said, ” it will go higher because without the water it is lighter”. When the rocket launched all that happened was a loud pop, and the rocket went up about 12 feet. This sparked a conversation about how a rocket works. But it also introduced him to the scientific method. The net result was that we all had a great time. Money well spent. Would recommend it.)
13. Code Master Programming Logic Game and STEM Toy
The is a logic-driven game that builds the reasoning and planning skills in your child and provides a great stealth learning experience for young players. There are different levels in this game and with each level going up, the difficulty is increased and the player is challenged to create multiple ways to go up a level.
(Customer Review: My daughter and I have been working through the puzzles and its good honest fun, to sit down and actually think of the various combinations!)
14. Snap Circuits Jr.
The kids love DIY projects as they get to learn, boost confidence and improve their reasoning skills. The Snap Circuit Jr. is a game that allows your child to learn about different electric circuits and how can they build different designs around them.
(Customer Review: Purchased for my 6-year-old son. He has a lot of experience with LEGO so thought would introduce him to electrical circuits.
– Very well built. Can withstand the rigors of a child’s play
– Easy to use. Cannot stress this more as the ultimate user is a child.
– great instructions. Extremely detailed and can be followed by a child.
– Well package with each part going to a separate slot. Teaches a child to organize his work.
Highly recommended for children in the age group of 6-10 years)
15. NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC Stunning Chemistry Set
It is a high-quality educational toy that is a whole lot of fun. Kids will learn the scientific process, important fundamentals of chemistry, and how to safely conduct experiments. This science kit serves as an important stepping-stone in STEM success!

17. Magnetic Building Sticks Blocks Toys
The magnetic building sticks blocks are a great stress reliever. The toys let the inner creative instinct of your child come out as their capability to recognize colors and build new designs is tested with this toy.
(Customer Review: Powerful little magnets and well made, they’re magnetic the entire length of the sticks and not just on the ends. The colors are bright, and vivid and a nice velvet(ish) storage bag is included. The sticks are smaller than they look in the listing pictures (that’s a regular size q-tip in my pic) but they’re still pretty cool overall. They’ll be a lot of fun to play and build with and I’m sure any kid who likes to build would love them. Very happy with this purchase and highly recommend it.)
18. STEM Construction Building Kids ToyDinosaur Toys
Dinosaurs and building new things are two things that will excite your kids to start playing with this toy right away. 🙂
This toy gives the experience of building the toy with electric drill. The toy is absolutely safe for kids to play with.
(Customer Review: As a mom of 5 during a pandemic I was looking for ways to keep my kids occupied and off tablets. These were perfect and so much fun to put together but the best part was , they each came with their own tool ( not the drill) so each kiddo could do their own dinosaur. Perfect for one kid and awesome for multiple kids at one time. ( hide the drill when doing it with more than one kid at a time or be ambitious and work on their sharing skills. )
And we can re live the fun by taking them apart and doing it all over again. Thank you!)
