As parents, I’m sure we’re all aware of the push for S.T.E.M./S.T.E.A.M. learning, but not everyone is sure what it is.  S.T.E.A.M. is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.  It’s more important than ever to get young children thinking in these ways, but what’s a great way to introduce these ideas without it being overwhelming for little ones?  Colorific has come up with a great solution with their fun new toy Build-a-Bot.  Build-a-Bot takes robotics to the next level by building and personalising your very own pet.  You can even add your own personal touches too!  There are three different versions available, Bunny, Dino and Fox, so there’s a great little buildable buddy for all the little ones on your holiday shopping list!



My daughter has had an absolute obsession with bunnies ever since she was a baby so it was a no-brainer when it came time to pick her new little robotic buddy.  Build your own robot bunny, switch her on, and watch her hop!  There are over 20 pieces included in the kit as well as as variety of stickers for the ultimate in toy customization.  The easy click-together pieces make it effortless for little ones to have fun which is a HUGE bonus in this mom’s book!
