July 1, 2019

With summer upon us, parents are opting for even less tablet time and more active play. Schools and future employers are more focused on STEM/STEAM/STREAM than ever, so it has become critical to provide children with quality educational toys that won’t add hours to their daily screen-time or incremental exposure to blue light from tablets.
