Need a gift for your grandchild and not sure what to buy? Grandkids seem to already have everything these days. Even some toddlers have their own tablets, smartphones, computers, and gaming consoles. But you don't want to give a gift that comes with screen time. You want something unique., fun, and educational.
You want gifts that teach your grandkids how to play offline, too — like you did when you were a kid. Gifts that encourage problem-solving, creativity, eye-hand coordination, and STEM skills.
Here's a look at our seven favorite gift ideas that will have you lingering in childhood memories while you make new ones with the grandkids.
This wonderfully designed toy has 204 pieces, a reusable plastic container, and comes with all of our most popular series. New Mini STEAM Center has large planks, connectors, and parts for driving, pulleys, and gears. This building set offers hours of STEM learning alone or with a grandparent while playing, designed to promote problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
The Driving Pulleys Set gives grandkids the ability to build replicas of real-world simple machines, pulleys and wheels, to gain a concrete understanding of the principles that make them work. It is a hands-on way to integrate the skills and concepts of math, science, engineering and design thinking.
Perfect for small hands, the Brackitz STEM Learning Toy comes with two set in one, an Inventor 28-Piece and 44-Piece set.

The pieces are also designed to grow with your grandchild's imagination, making it simple to design both simple and advanced structures.
