NEW STEM Deals on Amazon

by Kimberley McGee

I am already shopping for holiday gifts for the twins, who also have a Christmas birthday. I have found some great STEM deals on Amazon and thought I’d share what I find with you. There are also great deals at TargetLowe’sBed Bath & Beyond and Home Depot every day through Dec. 24. 


Osmo – Coding Starter Kit for iPad 
21% OFF

 I have heard from a lot of parents who bought Osmo this year who were really happy with it and it’s still on sale so thought I’d share. It’s more than expected and not just about coding. It’s good for reading, critical thinking and even fine motor skills. This one is for the 5-10 set. But the 6-10 year-old is on sale for $74.99 down from $99.99.

The Osmo Detective agency for kids up to age 12 is 25% off for $37.49. It’s good for iPad and Fire tablets, and that’s the one we’re getting the twins. Shhhhh. 

Smarty Pants – Kindergarten Card Set

31% OFF

We loved these when the twins were little. Ignore the kindergarten and start using these in early pre-k and into first grade. They love them! And it’s not so boring for parents, either. Always a good thing.

Interactive Globe
36% OFF

Finally! It’s on sale again. It has dipped to $26 but this is a great price for all this globe does. Comes with a 10” globe, passport, stamps, country flag stickers, and a detailed help guide. Explore 400+ highlights and 1000+ world facts across 6 categories – cultures, monuments, inventions, animals, maps and weather for various countries.

Dig a Dozen Dino Eggs Dig Kit
41% OFF

Kids can work on those paleontologist skills (and fine motor, because, ya know, homeschoolers!).  The kit is a big seller for all its goodies, which  includes -12 Dino Eggs (with a unique toy dinosaur in each), 12 Chisel/Brushes, 12 Instruction Guides, and a full-colored learning card for each dino. 

LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox|
20% OFF

It’s crazy expensive but cool Lego kits that are actually on the kids’ lists are hardly ever on sale. This award-winning STEM learning toy is a complete robot kit.  Kids can construct and code Vernie the Robot to dance, “rock out on the Guitar4000, foster Frankie the Cat, interact with the Autobuilder, or explore a new discovery with the M.T.R.4 (Multi-Tooled Rover 4).”

Simple Machines – Mechanisms That Multiply Force 
35% OFF

This type of kit has been a favorite because it can be played with over and over, and over years.  It basically grows with them and their interests. The kit combines 5 STEM mechanic sets for Levers(, Inclined Planes, Pulley Drives, Cams and Worm Drives (a personal fave).

Kids can build 60 working models, such as a “Scissor Lift, Catapult, Helicopter, Vise, Wind Mill” and a lot they hadn’t heard of but my son sure created! There’s also a manual with 70 pages of theory and facts a 16-page quiz (homeschool alert!), 25 pages of experimental activities illustrating, 3D rendered illustrations and more.

Mom tip – give the kid a box with compartments to store the parts so they can build to their little hearts contents without losing any little pieces you’ll find with your bare feet!
