What engages kids outside school, and even help them learn? Toys, of course.
STEM science toys (Coding for kids, Science toys, Electronics & Engineering toys) are educational toys for kids that provide experiential & explorative learning. They are generally considered a ‘right-brained’ activity, to ‘balance‘ the left-brained activity from class-room book-learning.
We all aspire to have a well balanced child. And at TheBalancedChild we provide the means to achieve it.
STEM toys for kids encourage them to explore the world around them. They develop skills in problem-solving, designing and building. STEM learning is most effective when it happens both in & outside school.
Is there a future scientist, engineer, mathematician or global leader in your family? We are proud to bring you this specially selected range of STEM games for kids because they have clear goals, and encourage kids to acquire all-important STEM skills while having fun.

The focus of STEM learning is the relationship between these four subjects. STEM-thinking is based on the need to identify real-world needs and their solutions, with a problem-solving approach.
This is particularly important for the rapidly evolving world we live in, with a huge impact on economies and the work force of the future.
World leaders believe that Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths are the way forward in the 21st Century.

Why it works
Maths & Science often cause anxiety in children, and even with their parents at times. As a result many children take to other learning pursuits in their teens, to get away from their discomfort with these subjects.
In many cases this is needless. If handled with thought and care in the early years, most children grow to be at ease with these subjects. As a result they learn to view them as important life skills.
Specially relevant is the key role parents play in their children’s success. Most of all, it takes only a half-hour of ‘Funwork‘ a day with our STEM games for kids to keep school blues and homework at bay.
