Being a mom of two girls I am always aware of all the subliminal messages being sent to my daughters in books, toys, movies, you name it. I am also aware of the messages I send. As a mom, wife and entrepreneur I try to set an example for my daughters and teach them that they can be and do whatever they want.
My girls have always had a healthy curiosity about how things work. They love building and figuring out problems. It is important for women to be equally represented in every field and so when I hear statistics about the lack of women in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), it makes me encourage my daughters’ interests in STEM even more.
Wonderhood Toys can help change the way girls approach these subjects by inspiring their creative and scientific sides. Wonderhood Toys makes creative building sets that allow kids to design and build their own dream house, hotel, shop, anything they want.
My girls have been working with a few of the sets. The Grand Hotel, Corner Shop and Pet Place are so fun and the figurines that go with them are interchangeable. The Grand Hotel is pretty perfect for my kids because we travel so much. Now they can design their own hotel, make notes, take it apart and build it differently next time. It is pretty incredible. Gemma has designed and redesigned her Pet Place a dozen times and the Corner Shop is definitely a joint venture—it is nice to see them working together on these creations. They share advice and design input—it is empowering to watch these two budding architects collaborate.
Wonderhood sets pack down flat so they are easy to store and even travel with! I am already making a list of all the little girls in our lives that could benefit from these fun and interactive toys. Who run the world?
