ThinkPlay STEM are great for getting your kiddos excited about building. I love that they come with a book with different things you can make but you also have the choice to get super creative and build whatever you can imagine. It comes with a bunch of different block pieces in different colors. They can be stacked or stuck together by sliding the pieces into each other.
Our daughter can’t slide them together yet but she’s getting close. I even think they are hard to put together and take apart. So when we use these I start the pieces but let her slide them all the way. It would be better if they snapped together. What is great is the sense of accomplishment and pride she gets from completing a project.
We have been trying out a lot of new baby items this year and here is another one we did not have for our first daughter. It is called Sensory Tissue Box . What makes this toy so much fun? Let's be honest babies love to get into things. We have tried before to let her play with a regular box of tissues. Big mess. The tissues were everywhere and they have like 250 tissues in a box, she torn them up to so an even bigger mess. Our daughter even went as far as to rip the box itself up. This sensory tissue box though is made of very soft fabric so she can not tear it up, it has 15 tissues so less to keep track of and the tissue can not be easily torn up either. This is the biggest positive of this sensory box in my opinion. Another positive to having this sensory tissue box instead of a regular one is that the tissues are different colors and sizes as well as having different textures to them. There are 6 see-through ones, 6 see-through ones that have dots on them and 3 crinkly ones. T
