Circuit Cubes-Smart Toys For Endless Play #CircuitCubes #STEMToys
As a mom and an educator, I am always on the lookout for the next great toy that will not only provide countless hours of fun but are open-ended enough that they encourage children to use their imaginations and that they can learn from and Circuit Cubes do all of that and so much more.
We had the chance to test out one of the great new starter kits from Circuit Cubes and whether you were a kid or a kid at heart, we couldn’t get enough of it. These are more than merely toys but toys that you bring to life.
With the demand for more and more creative ways to introduce students to STEM learning, especially girls, these easy to build cubes allow for creativity and imagination in a fun and easy to use way.
The Circuit Cubes are a variety of electronic building blocks that add sound, motion, light, and sensors to young Makers’ creations. My favorite part is that they were designed by STEM teachers, and provide an easy-to-use platform that helps kids develop confidence while experiencing the joy of discovery. Whether a design uses your own building bricks, favorite vintage toys, or pool noodles — with three Circuit Cubes, you can create just about anything you can imagine! Imagine being able to bring your Legos to life in an easy and affordable way. Plus with being open-ended, the kids never seem to tire of the Circuit Cubes and the only limit there is to their use it the imagination of the child.
Plus there are different kits to meet and peak the interest of every child because we all know that one size does not fit all.
We tried out the Circuit Cube Smart Art Kit as the girls love all things artistic and this was the perfect way to allow them to discover and expand their budding artistic talents. In just a few short minutes, the girls were mesmerized by utilizing the moving parts and a motor that came with the kit and soon they had created art that could spin and swivel or move up and down.
And it was all totally in their hands. The kit came with five patterns and directions inside that enabled them to easily create a carousel, jewelry box, mobile, light-up sign, or Flying Lady, and or designs of their own. The best part is that each of the Circuit Cubes kits comes complete with everything you need to make the suggested projects, including the Motor, Battery, and LED Cubes.

Another part that we loved was that the fun doesn’t have to end when you complete all of the kit projects, as there are countless other ideas to view and build on their Smart Art project ideas page. Who knew that such a small box would pack such a big impact. Leave it to teachers to know how to help develop a love of learning for the future.
