Many modern children’s toys have shunned the classic “pink and blue” stereotype – and for the better, we say! Educational toys are most effective when they are appealing and accessible to boys and girls no matter what their personal interests are. After all, accessibility is where STEM learning is at its best.
The importance of gender neutral toys can’t be overstated. To that end, we’ve compiled this guide on choosing the right toys for your special boy or girl that provide inclusive, wholesome fun!
Gender Neutral Toys for Young Kids
Despite their rise in popularity in recent years, gender neutral toys have in fact been around for a long time. Wooden toys for babies and toddlers are a great example of this. Moden versions of classic wooden puzzles and games, like the Melissa & Doug Farm Cube Puzzle and the Pounding Happy Bench, are perfect for developing crucial motor skills and coordination in the formative years.
Choosing the right gender neutral toy for a toddler is fairly simple, as toys at this age are all about refining gross motor skills and exercising young minds. Wooden toys that are safe for small hands – as well as children’s puzzles and early learning toys – are all excellent choices.
Best Gender Neutral Toys for Older Children
There’s a wealth of options when it comes to choosing gender neutral toys for older kids. As children develop their own interests, they’ll gravitate towards certain toys over others, but even here there are excellent options for both boys and girls.
Educational toys like science kits like the Galt Toys Space Lab and gifts that encourage exploration of the natural world are real winners here; as kids leave their toddler years behind them, their curiosity is ready to be sated, so be on the lookout for STEM toys that teach universal concepts like these.
Outdoor toys are also excellent for older kids of all ages. Nothing beats an engaging garden game – just check out this Target Ball set or the endlessly fun Pedal Racer. Toys and games that encourage physical activity like these are a great shout, and we stock a wide variety of similar products in the BrightMinds online toy store.
