My niece is curious, adventurous, daring, fun, and lovable! So when I introduced her to GoldieBlox, I knew they would hit it off. Have you heard about GoldieBlox? If not, better act like you know.
Children gain skills in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) fields through playing with construction toys, building blocks (I was into LEGOs big time), typically male-targeted toys, then in walks Goldie, the game changer. She is a young, adventurous, fun, lovable kid with a goldfish and a dog named Nacho, she is also an engineer who builds and redesigns things in order to solve problems. I would love to see Goldie with a geologist friend, I’m hoping it’s only a matter of time. I recently read about tree top Barbie, but it seems to me that toys need more than a wardrobe change to inspire girls to pursue STEM fields.
