Engineering toys teach children about important concepts such as cause and effect, help to demonstrate basic principles of physics, and illustrate the value and reward of creating and executing a plan. Engineering toys also allow children to physically express their creativity as they build and explore new structures and realize concepts that are otherwise only accessible in their imagination.
Petals and STEM sells a number of innovative new engineering toys designed specifically for girls, including the popular Goldie Blox and Roominate series. We also sell toys from traditional brands like LEGO, Mega Bloks, Lincoln Logs and TinkerToy, which have recently begun to create sets that appeal directly to girls. You can find these more mainstream products under "Construction sets" on the menu to the left. Happy building!
