Smart Toys and Games unveils Smartivity range

Published on: 22nd January 2021

The Smartivity range features a selection of DIY science and engineering wooden construction sets that introduce children to STEM concepts.

As the nation adjusts to more weeks of home education, Smart Toys and Games has unveiled its new partnership brand Smartivity, which features a selection of DIY science and engineering wooden construction sets. Based on the principles of STEM, Smartivity’s laser cut construction and activity sets are made from sustainable, engineered wood. Smartivity introduces children to fundamental STEM concepts such as domino effect, force, momentum, gravity, elasticity and trajectories.

The global bestseller for the brand is the mechanical Music Machine. The kit lets children build their own xylophone and experience the joy of music. Children will discover the mechanical aspects of music and learn how notes become melodies and produce their own songs through endless variations and combinations.

The Stem Wheels – Speedster set allows children to build their own car, load it into the launcher and watch it fly out, introducing children to the concepts of motion, elasticity and momentum.

Finally, with the Smartivity Roboformers Rover-Bot 2-in-1 set, children can construct two different toys using the same parts – a wind-up rover and an attacking bot. In the process, the child is introduced to a core understanding of STEM concepts such as wind-up mechanism, gears, elasticity, torque, transfer of energy and laws of motion.

Karen Clarke, UK brand director at Smart Toys and Games commented: “We are thrilled to introduce the Smartivity range to our customers. All of the construction sets encourage children to develop their cognitive skills through the joys of play. Best of all, once children have finished their construction, they have a high-quality toy which they can enjoy playing with for years to come.”
