“Goldieblox is out to get girls building! We need more girls in engineering and STEM fields…GoldieBlox creates toys and media that inspires girls to do just that. By tapping into girls’ strong verbal skills, their story + construction set bolsters confidence in spatial skills while giving young inventors the tools they need to build and create amazing things.
It’s rare for a small start-up to branch out into animation, but with a mission that matters, this tiny, wildly passionate creative team pulled it off! Our girls are so important and they need heroes and stories that show them they can do anything.
