When it comes to toys, I would prefer those that can aid my kid to learn as well as develop certain skills. Almost all toys are designed with that aim in mind. Unfortunately, some toys are just plainly fun to play with, no more no less. But if you want your kids to learn something while playing, then toys like the Goldie Blox and the Spinning Machine will be just right up that alley.
The Goldie Blox and the Spinning Machine is a toy that I would like to call a multi-educational toy, if there is such a word. That is because this special set comes with certain features that can teach my kids different skills sets that are not usually taught to most kids this early. While most parents mainly look for toys that they see as fun, it will not be bad to find such toys with some educational value on them as well. The Goldie Blox and the Spinning Machine does just that.
The Goldie Blox and the Spinning Machine is designed as a toy for girls. But an initial look will not seem to indicate that it is a toy specifically for girls only. That is because it is like one of those building and construction toys that you usually see in boy’s aisles. One indicator that it might be for girls is the pink color that it comes with.
What this toy is able to offer is a means for girls to develop that love for engineering at an early age. This toy can also help girls develop their spatial reasoning and problem solving skills as well.
The toy set comes with an accompanying book that tells of Goldie’s stories about the love for building things. It also provides stories that girls can follow to create certain fun projects. They can build using the pegboard, where they can set up the wheels, blocks, axles, crank, ribbon and figurines to create something that closely resembles what the kid’s see on the book. There are guides that Goldie provides in building certain things and in trying to make them run by creating moving parts that function according to the book’s instructions. All these come together to create a toy that is not only educational but some unique fun as well for the girls to play with. The Goldie Blox and the Spinning Machine is available at Amazon for US$30.
