Goldie Blox and The Spinning Machine
Girls are losing interest in math and science as young as age 8. Take a walk through a toy store and you can begin to see why; the “blue aisle” is filled with construction toys and chemistry sets, while the “pink aisle” is filled with princesses and dolls. Construction toys help kids develop spatial skills and get them interested in math and science. For decades its been a boy’s club…until now. GoldieBlox is an interactive books + construction toys starring Goldie, a kid inventor who solves problems by building simple machines.
