As parents we are always striving to give our children the best. When it comes to giving gifts I love to give gifts that are educational yet fun, exciting and engaging. I always love when a gift has been given and months later it’s still a favorite around our house. When I see my little one pulling out the gift/toy almost daily to play with, I know it’s a real winner!
STEAM Toys for Preschoolers
I’m sharing today our “winning” STEAM toys for toddlers that are not only mom approved but kid approved – meaning it’s a daily favorite around here! A few suggestions require Energizer® batteries…so be prepared if a suggestion below needs them!
What is STEAM?
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. I’ve broken down a toy for each category here.
1- Tornado Tower- With 4 unique hands on experiments preschoolers can create a tornado in a bottle with water or create a lava lamp using household ingredients. It includes recipe cards which are super hand and requires 4 AA Energizer® MAX batteries…These hold their power for up to 10 years while in storage so when it comes to toys you know with confidence that you have long lasting power and protection from Energizer® batteries.

2- Code and Go Robot Mouse – This is a fully programmable robot mouse and is ready to help teach hands-on coding concepts! It’s a great tool for learning about logic, sequencing, and problem solving— the very basics of computer coding and programming.
It’s easy to get stated in creating a step-by-step path for the robot mouse by using the 30 double-sided coding cards to provide the perfect introduction to coding concepts. Each card features a direction or ‘step’ (such as forward or reverse) to program the mouse.
Requires 3 -AAA Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ batteries. These are leak-proof and safety conscious…giving you as a parent the confidence that your toys will be protected against leaks and corrosion.

3- Builder Bot – Let your preschooler put their hands on learning to problem solve and ignite curiosity through this builder bot. They will learn the beginning of engineering at it’s finest with mix and match to build a robot. It lights up and moves…imagination in motion is so much more fun for preschoolers! With spinning arms, rolling wheels, rocking feet, light up body and pinching hands…plus so much more! This STEAM toy requires 3 – AAA Energizer® MAX batteries.

Simply load a Spray Art marker into the Spray device, and with the press of a button, you can start making beautiful airbrush effects.
