Roominate - construction, engineering, design toys for girls

Posted by Jackie on

Do you ever feel frustrated that your girls don't have the same chance to play with the kinds of toys that are marketed to boys to engage them in mathematical or technical thinking? This is what inspired these two female engineering graduates from Stanford. They looked at the low percentage of girls entering into higher education in fields relating to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and were inspired to create a range of toys that would appeal to girls with these concepts in mind. Their idea was to combine a way girls could engage in story-telling in their play while having hands on experience in problem solving, spacial and fine motor skills. The result is Roominate - a range of toys that encourage girls to be the architect, engineer, and designer of their own creations. We think this brand is fantastic in that it encourages open-ended play - Roominate toys can be built and re-built in endless variation. And while the colours are the same-old hues you see in other toys for girls (we suppose girls do respond well to pinks, purples and other pastel colours!) Roominate stands apart in teaching girls basic circuitry, construction and confidence in technology. You will love seeing the ideas kids come up with when given a Roominate toy - and this is definitely something the boys will play with too... if their sisters let them! Delivering Australia-wide, we have the complete range now on sale. Roominate is the ideal gift idea if you are looking for something completely new and unique! Recommended ages 6+
