Science Toys For Girls

story imageWired has an interesting article about a new company, Goldiebox , who is making science and engineering toys targeted to young girls . Apparently, this new direction in play-education was not supported by the conventional toy industry, but through crowd-funding Goldiebox was able to break into the mass market and is going like gang-busters. Interesting quote from the CEO: "A lot of the men in the toy industry have daughters, and many of them are tired of what they have to offer their daughters, too."

My friends kids, 4 girls, 3 boys (what can I say, it's Utah)

If you don't mind me going a little off topic: this is a stereotype that I'm not familiar with. I think there's a Mormon prohibition on abortion, but none on other forms of birth control, right? So why the many children?
