When I first heard about the Roominate Studio for kids, I was enthralled with the idea. The Roominate Studio is a highly adaptable toy that allows girls to build all manner of things. They are only limited by their imaginations in building elevators, carousels, spinning fans, bunk beds, walls, floors and panels. Essentially, they can create their own living spaces and areas and the best part is that they learn wiring and engineering principles along the way.
The folks that created this product wanted to come up with a toy that would inspire our young ladies to become engineers despite the profession being male dominated. The beginnings of any love affair with a career starts when you are kids, so that makes perfect sense. This idea really excited me and I could not wait to try it out. When it finally arrived, I was as excited as my girls were.
I was immediately impressed with the amount of materials included. There are over 70 pieces that are all interchangeable and stackable. You can literally create anything that you can imagine with all of these things to work with. It took us a bit to get accustomed to the idea behind the toy, but it was not long at all before my little ones were building incredibly cool ideas. I mean, they include a motor and how to to make a movable fan!! And it really works!
It also forces the kids to use their hands and take their time. It is not a toy that makes things too easy and that is a good thing. We want them to learn problem solving and self confidence. Toys like this can sometimes be too hard as well but Roominate is not at all. It is inspiring and addictive to the point that you don’t mind having to work at it. Basic circuitry and fine motor skill developments are other bonuses that the toy teaches. When I was a kid, I had Lincoln Logs and Lego stuff. This is another step well beyond those concepts indeed.
