When buying toys, in addition to considering their playful aspect, we also have to bear in mind that they can be used for children to learn, and to introduce our little ones to the world of science.

We are going to tell you which are the best science games for children according to the hyperlinked youtube channel named "David and Adele". This YouTube channel is an example of the perfect scientific toys to learn while playing.

What are STEM toys and games?

Maybe the term STEM sounds like you in English: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics… Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

It has become very fashionable due to the changes that are coming in terms of the jobs of the future: it is increasingly important to teach our children to think for themselves, to have imagination and to know how to solve problems.

Remember: the important thing is that your children play with other children, make their own decisions and reflect on the steps they are taking. Better to steer them in this direction than to spend all day in front of a computer screen.

That said, you don't need to burden them too much. They just have to play and be creative, and these kinds of science toys and games are perfect for that. That is why we have recommended you a few options that we find very interesting.

If you want to go a little deeper into the subject, we have prepared another entry with technological games.
