GoldieBlox and the Easter Egg Space Jump

Building simple machines has never had such a pull on girls.

How can you get girls to build? Engage them with a story, challenge them with a problem-solving purpose, use colors, materials, and shapes that delight girls!

Created by Debbie Sterling, a hip, young Stanford engineer (who always wanted a toy like this herself) - the second book and construction toy in the GoldieBlox series has arrived!

Enter the world of GoldieBlox and meet Goldie (a strong female character who likes to invent things), Nacho (her beloved dog), Benjamin Cranklin (a cat with attitude), Katinka (the dolphin ballerina), Phil (the sloth) and Flavio (the bear from Brazil).

In this second GoldieBlox kit, GoldieBlox and the Parade Float, kids help Goldie figure out how to build a wheel and axle configurations to drive her crew of animal friends. Following along with the story, girls problem solve for the animals and send them rolling!

Every time the "build" icon appears, girls build along with Goldie so that the story sequence can progress. The story in itself is perfectly charming. Girls are immediately drawn into the action that they create, especially since the simple machines and contraptions that Goldie builds always have a purpose - to help her friends!

Girls are excited immediately and challenged gradually with GoldieBlox. As they solve each problem by creating a moving contraption, they gain confidence to take on the next level of engineering fun.

Open a GoldieBlox kit and look out for greatness. Those wheels will be turning!

    Information about GoldieBlox and the Parade Float
    Posted 27 days ago by HEATHER LYNN GRELL

    My niece engaged with this toy immediately upon opening it and was figuring it out (without adult help) very quickly. She loves "girly" things and her mother and I were thrilled to find a toy that appeals to her on that level and also encourages her to think and be creative. Most other toys made just for girls fail on one or more of those points. I will definitely be buying more goldiblox toys for my niece and my daughter.

    great toy
    Posted 2/12/2014 by Acacia

    Both my daughter (6) and son (8) have enjoyed playing with this toy. She has never played with a lot of building toys because she always thought they were too boyish but this has caught her attention. She has enjoyed it but sometimes gets frustrated because the pieces don't always "lock in" and will sometimes slip out easily.

    My 4 year old daughter got this for Christmas and loves it. She was excited to create/build something that worked. She wanted to keep the final machine built to play with after the story was over. At this age I recommend reading the story with the box closed the first time and then open it up and read it a second time because they get too excited about the building pieces to listen to the story. Overall a great product and we look forward to more sets in the future. Her two older sisters were very intrigued at what their little sister was doing. They wanted to do it next!
