Science Toys and Your Child

Children are full of curiosity and are driven to explore and discover. Channelling this sense of discovery into science is a great way to exercise your child’s intelligence and teach them irreplaceable skills.

Science exists in many forms, from chemistry and physics to robotics and electricity. There are many ways to learn about science depending on your child’s strengths and interests. Teaching children about the world through science based educational toys and activities will help them develop mentally, physically, socially and emotionally.

Science fosters problem solving and critical thinking skills and teaches children how to overcome challenges and be creative. Many toys exist to help you foster or feed your child’s love for science. Here are some of our favourites!
