What The Heck Are STEM Toys?

STEM toys are really popular these days

I keep hearing or reading about toys known as STEM toys. I was able to figure out on my own that STEM toys are educational, but it seemed like there was more to it than that. So I finally did a little research to finally understand what STEM toys are.

It turns out that I was pretty close with calling them educational. STEM is an acronym for:

Science
Technology
Engineering
Math

Why should I care? Because I’m a mom and I want to use any tool I can find to help give my children an educational advantage.

Interestingly, it turns out that my girls already have a few STEM toys, such as their Hex bugs. Now that I understand what STEM stands for, I’ll be sure to keep my eyes open for these educational toys.
