Early STEM Concepts
I bought this toy for Klara because she loves horsies and little dollies that she can clutch in her tiny fist. But I almost didn’t buy it because on the back of the packaging it’s advertised as introducing toddlers “to early STEM concepts.” I hate how everything should be about STEM right now. This is a toy for 2-year-olds. It’s a dolly on a horsie and the horsie makes clop-clop noises. It’s not about STEM, which is perfectly fine, because toddlers don’t need STEM. They need to play, run, and laugh at funny clop-clop sounds.
At least, they are not claiming the toy will help her start coding at the ripe old age of 22 months.
