Toyportfolio.com: Top 20 STEM Toys For 2013

NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The independent consumer organization, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, announces their list of Top 20 STEM (science, tech, engineering and math) Toys for 2013 on their website www.toyportfolio.com.

"One of the best trends of 2013 is that STEM toys are finally taking root," notes co-founder Joanne Oppenheim, "with a wide range of products that can spark a life-long interest in a STEM-related field."

"Being a well-intentioned 'educational' toy isn't enough to make our list," notes Stephanie Oppenheim. "Toys also need to be fun and engaging. We're also delighted that there is a new generation of toy makers with STEM-backgrounds from such noted schools as MIT and Stanford that are encouraging kids to 'play' with the language and tools of their fields. While a great deal of the dialogue on STEM education and jobs has focused on the gender-gap, we believe both boys and girls benefit from this type of play experience."
