As you may have read in some of my other posts, my daughter loves all things STEM. As she gets older she is less interested in non-interactive toys and has grown a real interest in building/STEM toys. PlayMonster has released two great lines of toys for the holiday season, each one promotes interactive and imaginative play. The first line is called Roominate and features STEM building projects that provide educational as well and technology driven fun. The My Fairy Garden line features toys that promote imaginative and promotes exploration of the world around them.
My seven year old spent a lot of time with her grandma this summer who loves to garden. She came home with a love of gardening. When I found the My Fairy Garden line I was so excited to get her one. We got the Magical Cottage set it includes a fun planter that you can use to plant your very own fairy garden. You can fill up both the top and the bottom of the planter and the middle piece can be used as a fun little playhouse for your fairies. Includes all your gardening needs, a fairy, and your gardening needs like soil and seeds. It’s a really fun option for any kiddo who loves to garden, explore the world of ecology and have fun with fairies all at the same time. My daughter loves this toy and has already started her little garden. Lots of fun.
As I mentioned my daughter loves building and STEM. I think she has a real future in engineering. The Roominate line from Playmonster feature some great sets that feature some fun building pieces. We got the carnival set. I was actually really surprised at how much comes in the set. You can build an entire carnival with this one set. It’s really awesome. The set includes instructions that are easy to follow, my daughter needed some help but was able to do it pretty much on her own with a little direction. There are enough pieces in the box to build a Ferris wheel, carousel, swing, game tent and more! The cool part is that they include some motors for the rides that make them move and function. My daughter had a blast building the pieces and then playing with the actual working carnival pieces. A great way to spur their imagination.
