What do you get for the kid who has everything? Cool STEM toys that might help them learn something new, we say. Because even kids who have everything, don’t yet know everything. And now it’s easier than ever to shop for awesome educational gifts, thanks to Amazon’s new section featuring STEM toys and games.
They’ve got tons of our favorites that you’ve seen here, like Osmo (above), MaKey MaKey, Goldieblox, Robot Turtles, littleBits (below), and Tiggly Counts. Some of these were even named among our tcooles tech toys and gifts for kids of last year.
I even found some STEM toys that my kids already own and adore, like Laser Maze and Magna-Tiles, and some I know they’d be thrilled to check out, like Cubelets and the Thames & Kosmos crystal growing kit.
Surely you’ll find a ton of great ideas here. While there are a few duds in the lineup, as most toy collections are apt to have, mostly I’m really impressed by the thoughtful selection here.
I can see Amazon’s STEM toys and games section being a great gift idea resource for grandparents and relatives who may not know where to start, or even for classmates. The selection is broken down by age, which helps gift-givers narrow down the options and avoid gifts that are too challenging — worse, as your kids will tell you, not challenging enough. Because the last thing we’re going for is mooooom….this is for babies. Although admittedly it’s kind of cool that there are starting to be STEM gifts for them, too.
