Doing the short and tiny thing again and giving a shout out to GoldieBlox, a toy that I hope will conquer the world. This is from their homepage:
At GoldieBlox, our goal is to get girls building. We’re here to help level the playing field in every sense of the phrase. By tapping into girls’ strong verbal skills, our story + construction set bolsters confidence in spatial skills while giving young inventors the tools they need to build and create amazing things.
Basically it’s a toy for girls that’s about creating and thinking to inspire them to do stuff themselves. Awesome!
