Are you looking for great STEM gifts this year? We’ve been lucky enough to review some brilliant products over the last few years, here are some of our favourites!
A bottle rocket kit is always fun! Please note you’ll need a plastic bottle and bicycle pump to use this.
A stomp rocket makes a great gift too!
Microscope and Camera Kit
Some gifts are timeless and a microscope is one, although this premium version is much easier to use than my childhood microscope. It comes with a digital camera eyepiece making it very easy to use and means you can save and share images easily!

Another great find this year is this volcano model from Learning Resources. It splits in half so you can the inside of a volcano and has a handy container for your eruptions.
Test Tubes and Droppers
STEM Dolls for Kids
Lottie Dolls have a great STEM range, prefect for inspiring imaginative play. We love how the dolls are so child-like and perfectly sized for little hands. There are lots of different accessories available too!
My 3 year old loves his Magformers and spends hours building towers and bridges for his cars.
We’re also big fans of Connetix. This ball run set is one of our favourites!
We have this marble run from HABA which is is fantastic. There are lots of add ons available too so it’s an endless supply of gift inspiration.
My favourite magnet kit is this one from Learning Resources. It comes with differece size and shape magnets as well as magnetic chips and marbles!
My 3 year old loves his Drill Buddies truck and space rocket from Learning Resources. It took him a few goes to get the hang of it and he was so thrilled when he could do it alone. These have definitely been a great addition to our toy cupboard.
I’m also hoping to get him the Numberblocks set for Christmas from Learning Resources.
LEGO is so handy for all sorts of experiments and great for imaginative play, logic, fine motor skills and just generally great fun! We love a big box of bricks as well as a themed set. Zoobs and K’Nex are also great for building with.
