Staying close to home is a safe bet right now, but chilling in place can be a summer bummer for many kids and teens. Get your kids off their phones and Netflix, and make sure to follow my social media leading up to the July 22 Virtual Sweet Suite @ Home. I’ll be there ‘virtually’ to check out all of the new toys, games & outdoor fun activities coming to market, and I’ll be posting some unboxings leading up to the event. While I’ll be looking for entertaining and creative things for kids of all ages to do this summer, STEM focused toys have a special place in my nerdy little heart – it’s important to keep the learning going over the summer months!
Some new toys coming out that I’m excited to learn more about:
Blockaroos are the sasiest building system for young learners. These soft foam magnetic blocks click together like magic, rotate 360-degrees, and always attract to each other, creating a multi-sensory experience that your kids will love! It’s never too early to introduce your child to early learning STEM toys. Blockaroo Builders give your toddler the chance to explore shapes, colors, and frustration-free stacking with soft foam blocks that are safe, easy to handle, and connect like magic. Preschool age kids will love them too as they develop engineering and creative thinking skills.
Blockaroo blocks are also safe to play with in the bath! The foam bricks float and even stick to most bathtubs due to the metal liner common inside most tubs. They keep kids learning and having fun in the bath which transforms bath time into an experience parents and kids look forward to! My little niece played with these for HOURS AND HOURS and had so much fun making the designated toy design and then making her own creations.
Blockaroo Blocks are also easy to clean. Whenever they need to be cleaned or sterilized, just pop them in the top rack of the dishwasher and they’re as good as new! How great is that! Learn more about Blockaroos here.

As a food blogger, how can I not be excited about the Chocolate Pen. The Chocolate Pen is an easy way for kids/teens/& even adults to write on or decorate food with designs!
It comes with various chocolates in different colors as well.
Stay tuned for more additions to this list!
