Before children reach the age of 6 and enter elementary school, they have a unique sense of curiosity.
This leads them to explore how things work and move. Learning toys for toddlers are a great way to encourage this curiosity.
Unfortunately, this sense of curiosity can easily be lost by the time the child enters elementary school.
STEM play in young children can help nurture that curiosity and teach them important life skills like teamwork.
STEM LEARNING TOYS FOR TODDLERS
This post is in partnership with Geomagworld. All opinions expressed are our own.
Magicube from Geomag sets are great STEM learning toys for toddlers that encourages building and construction.
With no tiny parts, you don’t need to worry about your little one sticking pieces into their mouth and choking. Magicube is perfect for children ages 18months and up.
Magicube are magnetic cubes that attach to each other on ALL SIDES! No more frustration with different sides of the cube repelling themselves, allowing your child to move and create whichever way they want in a 3D fashion.
When we first received the package, I was impressed with bright colors and sizes of the blocks. “Perfect for young children,” I thought. Then I opened the package. It wasn’t long until I realized I had been sitting at the table for at least 5 minutes, mesmerized by the magnetic cubes and the way the pieces fit together and the different shapes I could make.
The Magicube Free Building sets are available in sets from 8 up to 64 bright colored cubes. These free building sets allow your child to develop 3D play through simple magnetism. With retail prices ranging between $10 up to around $100, this is a great toy that can grow with your child.
My 12-year-old daughter has brought a set along in her babysitting bag and it is always a hit. The kids ask her to bring it back the next time. It doesn’t seem to matter how old the child is, everyone seems to love playing and creating with the Magicube.
The Safari Park Animal Set contains 14 different cubes with pictures on different sides to create either a lion, giraffe, parrot or a camel.
The world of animals and safari can come to life for your little one with easy to follow instructions included.
