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.
Science for kids
Help them look to the stars and explore the wonders of worlds beyond ours. We’ve got all the equipment they need to search the night sky for stars and learn all about the Solar System.
Science toys by subject
Science made simple
Getting experimental with science is not only fun, but it can help young scientists to learn more about the make-up of the world. There are a number of sets and kits that can help them to explore each area of science, developing their interest and understanding along the way.
Coding for kids
Code is the language that computers speak. By learning code, kids can understand how to make technology perform certain tasks and actions. While this may sound technical, there’s a wide range of toys that make learning code fun and easy. Encouraging an interest in coding can lay the groundwork for a future in computing, programming and game development.

Kids laptops and tablets
We have a range of laptops and tablets made specifically for kids. Featuring only child-friendly apps, they can encourage e-learning and interactive play. Ideal as an introduction to portable tech, before they receive their own device in the future.
What is engineering?
Engineering is the science behind how man-made machines and structures, like cars, planes, robots and buildings, work. For inquisitive minds, engineering encourages practical learning, as well as creative thinking and problem solving. So if your little one has ever wondered how spaceships fly, or how a race car can be so fast, then toys that help them learn about engineering are perfect.
Building and construction
Robotics, vehicles and gaming
Maths is a key learning area that's closely linked with the other STEM subjects, so finding fun ways to build a child's confidence in counting, telling the time and problem solving will help support them in science, technology and engineering subjects too.

Why buy at Argos?
Learning can most definitely be fun at Argos. No matter what age your child is, we’ve got educational and creative toys that will get them thinking, learning and developing skills while playing and having fun. Electronic learning toys are an exciting way for young children to learn everything from basic shape and colour recognition to phonics, reading and maths. Packed with interactive games and challenges these toys can help your pre-schooler build a great foundation before they head off to school. There’s more to learning than sums and spelling though. A creative outlet is vital for any child and you can help them unlock their creativity with our musical instruments or creative games.
For budding scientists why not treat them to a chemistry set so they can carry out experiments in the kitchen and around the house? The sets come with everything they need to start learning fascinating facts about the world around them.
As the toys begin to mount up, make sure you get an extra toy box or two to make sure everything is safely stowed away and ready for next playtime. We have toy boxes emblazoned with characters like Peppa Pig, and even ones that double as a bench, making them ideal for the living room as well as their bedroom.
