Kids construction toys used to be "unisex", but as "girl toys" get more "pinkified", people have seen the need for "pink" construction toys for girls, so that they develop critical thinking and problem solving skills needed for understanding math, science, and the physical world in general. Our experience in the store has shown us (for better or worse) that this is true and adults are more apt to buy a building toy for a girl if it's pink or purple.
The Goldiblox series of building toys was developed by a woman engineer to encourage girls to engage in this type of play. The toys are fun, engaging, and creative.
In this award-winning debut story/contruction set, Goldie uses basic engineering principles to build a spinning machine to help her dog, Nacho, chase his tail. Soon all her friends want in on the action. Kids get to help Goldie build a belt drive machine to spin everybody!
The toy comes equipped with 16 design ideas and unlimited building possibilities.
For kids 4-9.
