“The demand for good quality and replayable STEM toys for early years primary school children is continuing month on month with parents beginning to look towards the beginning of the new school year,” says Jo Drage, sales director at Thames & Kosmos.
Jo adds: “Throughout lockdown the sales of our STEM kits and in particular the Kids First Range have proven extremely popular, with end users telling us how helpful they find it to engage their little ones in learning about subjects like engineering.”
Robot Factory provides an engaging way to teach simple engineering concepts to young children, allowing parents, teachers, and caregivers to lay the groundwork for strong STEM-related skills and comprehension at an early age.
