Goldie Blox

Close your eyes for a second and imagine an engineer. Got a good image? What did the engineer look like? If you’re like most people you probably imagined a guy, right? Goldie Blox is a new toy with a mission to break that mindset.  This new innovative toy was created by Stanford graduate Debbie Sterling. While she was getting her degree in Mechanical Engineering and Graphic Design, she was bothered by how few women there were in her program. So she set out to do something about it.

“At GoldieBlox, our goal is to get girls building. We’re here to help level the playing field in every sense of the phrase. By tapping into girls’ strong verbal skills, our story + construction set bolsters confidence in spatial skills while giving young inventors the tools they need to build and create amazing things.”

Goldie Blox and the Spinning Machine is for ages 4-9 and comes with…

  • Creative Storybook
  • 33  Construction Pieces

We at Learning Express are super excited about this new toy and totally agree that there are tons of little girl engineers out there, they just might not know it yet. We’re proud to carry this brand and hope you’ll help us “disrupt the pink aisle.” :)

Check out this video from the creator.

  1. Excellent. Are you also going to carry the parade float and expansion pack from GoldieBlox?

    • Right now we have the Spinning Machine in all 4 locations. Our Falls Pointe and Cary stores have the Parade Float. Hopefully we’ll be expanding the line in 2014. Thanks for the comment! :)
