It’s never to early to get kids involved in science, tech, engineering and math. To that end, Amazon has started a subscription service called STEM Club that delivers a science, tech, engineering, or math toy from “top trusted brands” once a month (please let one of the toys be those cool crystal building kits).
The boxes are made for ages 3-4, 5-7, 8-13 and cost $19.99 monthly with free shipping. The service is currently available in the US only.
