GoldieBlox : An engineering toy for girls

Debbie Sterling, an engineering major from Stanford, has designed an engineering toy for little girls aged 5 - 9 called GoldieBlox.  Here's her Kickstarter campaign video to help raise money to see them into production.

"Any girl you know is so much more than just a princess."  

This is exactly what I was talking about in my last post.  It's so nice to see a real engineering toy for girls that's not just a hot pink version of a boys toy.

I dropped $30 to pre-order my own GoldieBlox kit (which will likely go to my niece).  I encourage you to show your support as well.
