STEM toys are a popular way for children to play and learn.  STEM education focuses on 4 different areas – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

STEM toys are great learning tools for those students whose minds love science and math challenges.


This is a sponsored post. We were invited to write about Laser Pegs by ShopHer Media Influencer Network.

While many STEM toys focus on young children/toddler learning, or teenager play, Laser Pegs focus on children ages 6-11!

We received the Mars Shuttle, Mars Rocket, and the Mars Rover to try out and one of the first things we noticed is how flexible the people are – their legs and knees bend.

Laser Pegs are unique STEM toys that enhance creative abstract thinking, problem-solving and math skills.

These skills are taught by grouping, improving hand/eye coordination, and following instructions.

The instructions are easy to follow which is great for kids.

Laser Pegs come in many different creative sets and ALL the sets that your child will come to love feature light up blocks.

Kids will especially love the light up helmets!

Some sets even feature electronic sound effects – how cool is that??

When I asked my friend’s son what his favorite thing was about Laser Pegs, he immediately said, “The blocks light up!”.

When you purchase a set of Laser Pegs, you will see a cut-out spot in the box where you can actually press on the pieces to see them light up or make sounds, so you will know exactly what you are buying.

Your child will be able to let their creativity flow by building one of the great Mars Sets!

Following the building instructions are easy with the big and easy to read manual.

Boys will love the Mars sets because according to this boy, space is just cool!

These sets include:

MARS ROCKET – Build your very own Mars Rocket that lights up and actually TAKES OFF!  Start the countdown, light your engine and blast off.

MARS SHUTTLE – Go on a Mars mission with the Mars Shuttle.  When you are ready to take off, tap the shuttle and you will hear the engines fire up.

MISSION CONTROL – A missions to Mars cannot be complete without Mission Control.  Here is where you train your astronauts and keep an eye on them when they are flying in outer space.

MARS ROVER – The Mars Rover is the vehicle astronauts use when exploring the terrain of Mars.  The Mars Rover even has a working suspension to cover the rocky landscape and includes tools and tanks!

MARS EXPLORER – This Mars ready vehicle has a satellite dish, solar panels, computer monitors, and a detachable communications trailer. Ready to send information back to Mission Control.

Laser Pegs also has other great set combinations like Monster Trucks, Creatures, and Everyday Heroes!
