I love researching toys and books for my kids. It’s true when you become a parent, you love buying for your kids much more than for yourself. Recently I came upon a few cool new finds all from companies that are just starting out that I thought I would share.
Goldie Blox- Goldie Blox has been getting a lot of press recently. They have a wonderful commercial that’s been going viral, and they’ve been working to try to get their ad to play during the Super Bowl. The founder is a female engineer from Stanford who realized that there were few women in the engineering field, as well as other science and math careers, and decided to work toward finding a way to encourage girls to stay interested in those disciplines. Goldie Blox is a girl inventor who invents tools to help solve problems presented within a story book as well as building materials. Juliet is of course too young for this toy, but I couldn’t help marvel at the mission of the company. I absolutely want to invest in this company’s products when Juliet is a little older and can really dive in and experiment with the toy.
