Did you know that you can begin encouraging your child to explore all things STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) as early as within the first three years of their life?
During this time, when their brains are rapidly growing, they’re learning all about this wonderful new world and their place in it. In fact, every child conducts their own experiments almost daily without even realizing it!

While using their senses as they interact and play – touching, building, stacking, sorting, experimenting, creating, listening, watching and moving – their young brains grow. They connect processes and ideas, think, realize creative visions, enact cause and effect, and interact with others.
It’s a journey you’ll love embarking on with them. Here we’ve put together our top selection of the best Oh Goodie Goodies’ toys for encouraging a love of STEM in toddlers (ages 12 months to 36 months). And best of all, not a single one is made from plastic!
