The Little Engineer That Could!

No school today so we brought out Ngaio's new toy to play with! 

Mark found a video about Goldie Blox- engineering toys for designed for girls. I know, I know! All the anti-girlie pink Lego movement should have taught us a lesson but these are different. And I'm leaving it at that because I don't really want to debate!


We've been interested in buying one for months and saw one at Target last week. On sale. How can you not try it?

It only took her about 30 minutes to build it several times and then she started using the pieces to build her own contraptions. 

We started with the dunk tank set. Any relatives out there wanting to get her a present (hint, hint!) don't worry about doubling up because the pieces can combine to make bigger and better projects.

Back to building!



  1. I love it! I am so glad those are now available for purchase. I had been following the story of these for a while and really wanted Ms. Sterling to succeed in getting these toys out there.

  2. Cool... I'd love to buy this for my daughter; I will look into it. :)

  3. Just available in Australia this month, so I got her one for her birthday (next Tuesday). Good timing; thanks for the recommendation :)
