Educational Toys


We have done all of the STEM Toy research for you

& we have found the best, award-winning toys for all ages

Robotics, coding, engineering, biology, chemistry & more

The hardest thing about looking for great STEM toys for your kid is that something around 96.893% of the review sites are paid promotions. You want to feel comfortable that the review of an educational toy is done by someone who is a parent, a teacher or a scientist.

It took a long time, but we found several places that were run by teachers, parents and scientists; often together. Feel great knowing that when you pop by Ab Fab, you're picking up a great toy for your kid.
