Does your child like to explore the world of engineering? My seven year old is all about STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). As a mom when it comes to getting her toys I want to give her toys that are not only fun but educational too. In this world of technology engineering is such an important skill. With engineering being a predominantly male profession I want to encourage not only my own daughter but all young girls to be interested and pursue engineering and STEM in general. I recently found this great product called PlayTape that is not only fun to play with has great educational value.
PlayTape by InRoad Toys is a really cool product. Basically it is reusable tape and sticker products that can be used to engineer your very own tracks. You can find it in different colors and sizes. Each roll comes like a roll of tape. Simple pull out the length you need and tear. It tears really easily so kiddos can do it all on their own. They even have sheets of curves that you can use to design twists and turns in your track.
You can reposition the tape as many times as you would like. It easily pulls up off of any surface with no residue. So you can put the tracks down on any hard surface. We used them on a poster board so she could fold it up and pull it out to play with when she wants and we also played with it on the floor. When she was done on the floor we pulled it up, no residue or problems at all. I was honestly a little nervous to put this on my wood floors but it was fine, no problem at all and it was was there for a good amount of time (at least about 4-5 hours).
My seven year old had a blast playing with the tracks. She built her track all on her own using the different pieces. She played for hours with it. She had cars and dolls out using the tracks as her own little town by the end of the day. So not only does it promote engineering skills it also promotes imaginative play. She loved it.
