Amazon STEM Toy Club is a monthly subscription box service that delivers an age-appropriate STEM toy that encourages any child to learn through play. The subscription costs $19.99 per month, and the theme of the month can be anything from natural sciences to robotics. There’s always something new to discover in every box of Amazon STEM Toy Club!
There are three age ranges available for this box: 3-4 year old, 5-7 year old, and 8-13 year old. This is a review of the 5-7-year-old box.
This is an Amazon subscription, so the toys arrive packed just like any other Amazon purchase. If you get multiple subscriptions, they will likely ship together.
Everything in our box! We ordered a subscription for two of the three available age ranges this month. No information card or other extras are shipped with the toy. This review will cover the 5-7 year old subscription.
In case you’re wondering what’s included in the other subscriptions, here’s what they have:
- Ages 3-4 Year Old Box – Educational Insights Playfoam Shape & Learn Numbers & Go Set ($26.20)
- Ages 8 – 13 Year Old Box – ($30.46)
Follow the story of Remus, the Omega family’s robotic teddy bear, as he embarks on a fun-filled safari adventure. Along the way, Remus encounters eight different robotic animals from all over the globe, including a llama, unicorn, narwhal, and more. As they follow the story, kids can build models of these motorized robotic animals and get a fun introduction to mechanical engineering.
The kids can make 8 animal models out of the puzzle pieces and these are the bear, crab, narwhal, fox, unicorn, llama, otter, and cat!
The box contains 146 building pieces that can be used to make up the animal models.
Using the building pieces, we can create each of the eight models one at a time.
The box also comes with a 32-page, full-color illustrated manual.
It also lists down all the parts inside the kit.
The story starts with the Omega Family who loves building things, that’s why Ms. O designed a robot that can build just about anything. For the robot’s first project, it converted one of the kids’ teddy bears named Remis into a walking and talking science bear.
One page has the story and the next page shows us illustrated instructions on how to make the models.
For this one, it introduces us to Narbert the Narwhal, and the next pages show us how to build his figure!
This is such an interactive book! The illustrated instructions are pretty easy to understand and follow as well.
My son tried it out right away! After reading the instructions, he started building the models piece by piece.
It takes a lot of patience in building this and my son did a really great job!
My younger son also helped in putting the animals together!
The polar bear model is their favorite!
It’s really fun because just like the Omega kids, my kids love building stuff too!
Robot Safari is a fun toy especially made for little builders! It provided us a great way to introduce and teach the kids simple mechanical engineering concepts. We had fun reading the story and, at the same time, building each character. We can also try to experiment with building other models or things from these building pieces. It helps develop some important skills like reasoning, mechanical, and visual, plus, it also teaches the kids to be more patient!
