Spark their imagination with toys that make learning fun.
Give your little ones all they need to develop into the innovators and intellectuals of tomorrow. Find the toys and tools to increase their interest and knowledge in the areas of science, technology, engineering, maths and beyond.
What is STEM?
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. STEM learning encourages children to discover more about these subjects through fun, engaging and practical learning. These areas are also considered to be important career paths, so getting started with STEM can help put your little ones on the road to success.
Encourage young scientists to make new discoveries, explore the nature of our world and uncover the secrets of the universe. Science comprises everything from chemistry, physics and biology, to astronomy, geology and more. Educational science kits can help them get started at home and discover which area fascinates them most.
Set them on their way to becoming the next tech innovator by helping them uncover the ins and outs of computing. Kid-friendly tablets and smart technology help to get little ones up to speed with computer basics. For inquisitive minds, programmable toys and robots help kids get to grips with coding.
The world has always needed innovative builders, architects and engineers. Give children the building blocks to start designing with toys that encourage construction and creativity. Engineering includes machine building, robotics and even virtual designing, through computer programs and sandbox video games like Minecraft.
Maths has always been considered a key learning area and it’s one that’s linked closely with the other areas of STEM. Development in maths ranges from counting, telling the time and times tables, to problem solving, algebra and geometry. Building their knowledge in this area may also help when it comes to science, technology and engineering too.
