Brain Flakes 500 Piece Interlocking Plastic Disc Set - A Creative and Educational Alternative to Building Blocks - Tested for Children's Safety - A Great Stem Toy for Both Boys and Girls

VIAHART Brain Flakes 500 Interlocking Piece Plastic Disc Set

by VIAHART

The original Brain Flakes ; Includes over 500 interconnecting discs and a durable plastic jar for easy storage ; Every set comes with an idea booklet with instructions to build a Brain Flakes ball ; Discs easily click together for ages 5+ with some children as young as 3 having no problem

The Brain Flakes are a smart alternative to building block sets. They are made of solid plastic and come in a wide range of colors, which makes it easier to both stack and match them together. The discs are a little smaller than building blocks, so it's a little harder to stack them, and there's a limit to how high you can build them. But it's fun to experiment with increasing the height, and the discs simply snap together. The discs are also much easier to clean than building blocks, and there are no tiny pieces that get swallowed by a baby or child. The Brain Flakes Set comes with 500 discs, and they come arranged in 10 separate packages, which makes it easy to separate out the discs by color. The discs are a good size for young children, but children who are older than 3 may enjoy the larger sizes. The Brain Flakes Set is recommended for children ages 3 and up.

RAINBOW TOYFROG Straw Constructor STEM Building Toys 300 pcs Interlocking Plastic Educational Toys Building Engineering Blocks -Construction Blocks- Kids Toy for 3-12 Year Old Boys and Girls

by RAINBOW TOYFROG

BEST TOYS GIFT. Packed with durable box with reusable bag inside, easy to clean and keep in storage. Ideal for birthday gifts, kids party supply , classroom education material, kindergarten manipulatives, daycare,preschool toy building sets.

For preschoolers and toddlers, we recommend the Rainbow Toyfroog Straw Constructor. It's more forgiving than some of the others we tested, and it comes packaged in a nice box, so it's more durable. The pieces snap together well, and while building with them is a bit fiddly, it's easy enough for young kids to do. The straws and connectors are brightly colored and pretty sturdy, too. It's also a good size, so it's a little easier for younger kids to handle than some of the others we tested. The Rainbow Toyfroog Straw Constructor is a good starter set, but it's best suited for ages 3 and up. For younger kids, it's a bit challenging, and there are some pieces that are too small for little kids to handle.

CoolToys Monkey Balance Cool Math Game for Girls & Boys | Fun, Educational Children's Gift & Kids Toy STEM Learning Ages 3+ (64-Piece Set)

CoolToys Monkey Balance Cool Math for Game Girls & Boys

by CoolToys

ENGAGING + EDUCATIONAL PLAY: Get toddlers and young kids on the counting and mathematics fast track! Monkey Balance improves memory, encourages interactive play and helps develop fine motor skills. Cute graphics and colorful design are eye-catching for the whole family! Monkey Balance also makes a great gift for young girls, boys and families!

The CoolToys Monkey Balance is a fun and educational toy for boys and girls ages 3 and up. The set comes with 65 pieces, including 19 monkeys, 30 double-sided cards, a scale, a base, two pans, and an instruction leaflet. The box is well made, and the pieces are durable and colorful. The monkeys themselves are large and colorfully-patterned, and the numbers on the sides of the pieces are large and legible. The instructions were easy to follow, and the game took only a few minutes to set up. The instructions are simple: Place one of the monkeys on the number cards, and take turns adding each monkey to the corresponding number card. The monkeys move easily up and down, but we found that they tend to slide down the pans. The scale makes it easy for kids to measure how much they added. The double-sided cards are double-sided, and the game includes several games, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The first few games were easy, but as the cards got higher, the monkeys became more difficult to add. With a little practice, though, kids will soon get the hang of it. The games keep kids engaged, and the variety of math problems makes the set a great learning tool. The set includes two scales, two pans, and 65 pieces, so kids can keep playing for hours. The set is a fun and engaging way for kids to practice their math and counting skills.

Engino Inventor Girl 10, STEM Model Construction System, Build Stem Skills, 75 Parts, Parts Separating Tool Included, ENG-IG10 Toy

Engino Inventor Girl 10

by Elenco Electronics Inc

Models illustrated online at Engino' S website or using the Engino 3D app downloadable free for Android or Apple iOS. Made in CYPRUS. Ages 6-12

The ENG-IG10 is the second Engino set we've tested, and it's the most impressive yet. Like the other Engino sets, the ENG-IG10 kit comes with 73 parts, a 1 Extractor tool, illustrated assembly instructions, and an activity guide. But the ENG-IG10 goes one step further in giving kids (and adults!) an easy-to-understand introduction to engineering. The manual is laid out in a logical way, with each step illustrated on a step-by-step diagram. Parts are numbered and color-coded, and there's even a list of all of the parts on the set and their location in the instruction manual. The parts are well formed and come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from long screws to small nuts and bolts. And unlike most other toy construction sets, the ENG-IG10 parts don't snap together, but slide into pre-drilled holes. This separates assembly from frustration, as not every kid is as adept at slotting parts together. The 1 Extractor tool makes removing parts from the set and putting them back together much easier. The ENG-IG10 also introduces kids to basic mechanical concepts like torque, friction, and gears. And unlike some robotics kits, the ENG-IG10's parts aren't overly complex, and kids won't encounter any frustrating paradoxes or problems. The set comes with a circuit building activity, where kids can build circuits using a series of switches and lights. The kit also comes with a handy plastic carrying case, which kids can use to store the parts in.

The set comes with several parts that can be stored in a compartment on the back of the box, so kids can bring all of the parts with them wherever they go. The set is sturdy and well-made, and kids won't break things if they drop them. The instruction manual is thorough and easy to understand, and the app is intuitive. The only downside is that the set comes in only English and Chinese.

Scientoy Flower Garden Building Toys, Stem Toys Build a Garden for Girls, 130 PCS Flower Pretend Gardening Gift for Kids, Floral Arrangement Playset for Age 3-7 Year Old Child Educational Activity

Scientoy Flower Garden Building Toys

by yixing

Wonderful Educational STEM Gift Bright and colorful flower garden building toys benefit children on hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills in early development. With the watering pot, teens will feel more realistic to learn planting and watering flowers. All the designs make it become a good gift for girls on birthday, Easter, Christmas, New Year and summer camp activities.

The Scientoy Flower Garden Building Toys are a colorful and well-made set of flower stem toys. The set comes with 130 pieces, which seems like a lot, but we found we were actually able to build a fairly elaborate garden fairly easily, even without any prior experience. The pieces have a smooth, rounded surface, and each one is small enough to fit easily in a child's hand. Most of the pieces also come in different colors, so children can mix and match to create different arrangements. The set comes with a green storage box, which makes it easy to transport and store all the pieces, and it's large enough to hold all the pieces together. The pieces come in a variety of shapes, including stamen, flower, stem and leaves. The flowers are slightly smaller than you'd expect, and while this makes it harder to build larger arrangements, it's meant to prevent children from accidentally hurting themselves.
