STEM learning starts in early childhood. Educational toys are the best way to spark a child’s interest in STEM and learning! These 3 HEXBUG educational STEM toys are perfect for kids ages 8 and under to start developing those critical thinking and basic engineering skills.
Educational STEM toys are sometimes a little too heavy on the education and a little too skimpy on the fun, especially for kids under 8 years old. We firmly believe that all toys should be fun, first and foremost. The learning part should happen naturally because of the toy’s design. While kids are having fun playing, their brains are developing and learning STEM concepts. When it comes down to it, that’s the most effective type of educational toy.
That brings us to our top 3 educational STEM toys. Each of these toys are appropriate for kids ages 3-8 and are not only fun to play with, but teach the basics of engineering and other STEM lessons. Of course HEXBUG offers a wide array of educational toys, but this list has something for everyone.
We have lift off! HEXBUG nano Space series includes 3 different sets (Cosmic Command is pictured above) that allow kids to build their own space station. Challenge your child’s engineering skills and creativity with the set as they build a station that their nano astronauts can navigate!
With two different track sets (the Nitro Slingshot is pictured above), there are tons of building options. Each of the sets are compatible, so you can combine them to make a MAJOR roadway for the nano. What makes this toy educational is the use of creative and critical thinking skills that go into designing unique roadways.
With 3 different sets, the VEX Explorers combine the fun free play of an action figure with the construction based learning of VEX Robotics. Each set features a different space-themed explorer and their machine (can you tell we love outer space at HEXBUG?). It’s up to your child to imagine their own space adventure!
