Beat Cabin Fever with affordable STEM toys!



This kit, Solar Powered Rovers by Thames Kosmos is so awesome! Myself and my son put 2 of them together so far during our staycation and it’s super fun.

We had to cancel our vacations this year, but that won’t stop up from having fun even if it’s a camp out in the backyard, a night of fun indoors or a safari in our state of NJ.

Most STEM kits cost so much money,  but this is a super affordable and fun option that ever parent can surprise they kids with.  Take it on the road, camping,  or just have fun at home. This one kit contains 5 different options and you can build each and take apart easily. At just $19.95 it’s a steal!
