WHAT ARE STEAM TOYS?
Over the last few years the educational world has seen the advent of a new educational approach: STEAM. This important movement is gaining popularity because it touches on critical factors that help children thrive and succeed in today’s fast-changing world.
STEAM integrates SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, ART and MATH. It helps kids gain an understanding of the links between these subjects, and how they interplay in our everyday lives. STEAM pushes kids to explore science, while applying math, thinking like an engineer, and being creative all at the same time.
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we are celebrating the time we spend playing with our children. A time that fosters love, our connection to them and as a family.
When we launched Evolve Toys we didn’t know that our children would play such a pivotal part in our company. Nor did we know that we’d spend as much time as we do playing with our kids and the toys we carry. We now realize that their involvement was just a natural progression. After all, we are a family business, founded on the goal of offering the everyday parent and their children the best quality, educational toys.
Happy February everyone!
We hope that the first month of 2018 was a good one for you all. Winter isn’t always easy, with cold, snow and ice overwhelming our everyday. But we can sure make it more enjoyable and fun by staying active as much inside as outside. When it’s too cold to ski or skate, when you’re just too tired to start bundling up or you’re just in the mood to stay at home on weekends, why not play?
Playing and trying out toys is exactly what our toy testers did. They played, they learned and most importantly they had fun. Now they are sharing with us their February favourites.
Happy New Year from us at Evolve Toys!
We are lucky to have our very own in-house toy testers. Over the Holiday break from school they were very busy playing and testing toys that they chose. As usual, if a toy doesn’t make the Evolve cut – it doesn’t get re-ordered.
