Amazon STEM Toy Club Review, Ages 3 to 4 – November 2017

Amazon STEM Subscription

Amazon has launched a STEM Club Toy subscription box! This monthly subscription delivers “handpicked, high-quality Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math toys” to your door for $19.99/month.

We signed up for Amazon’s STEM Toy Club subscription as soon as it launched, and this is our ninth delivery. This subscription looks like any other shipment from Amazon, with no exterior branding on the box or special insert.

Amazon STEM Subscription

There are 3 age range options:

  • 3-4-year-olds (counting, building, and cause and effect)
  • 5-7 year-olds (hands-on experiments and explorations of electricity, earth science, and simple math)
  • 8-13-year-olds (more complex projects and experiments based on principals of physics, chemistry, and engineering)

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This is a review of the 3-4-year-old age range Amazon STEM Club, $19.99/month.

Hape Dynamo Dominoes Set – Retail Value $39.99 (found on sale here for $34.99)

This month’s toy is a super cool wooden domino set!

Amazon STEM Subscription

Even though it contains 100 small domino pieces and a few other fun things, I have a TON of memories of playing with dominoes as a kid, so I was really excited to share this with my son. You remember Domino Rally, right? I spent SO MANY HOURS playing with that as a kid.

Amazon STEM Subscription

Everything was nicely packaged in this box, but you’ll likely need a plastic bin for long-term storage.

The domino blocks are tons of fun for a little bit of color and pattern play, too. 😉 Not everything has to be set up and destroyed, right? I love these colors and that they let some natural wood shine through, too.

They’re light and easy to set up. It took my toddler a little while to get used to it, but within an hour he was a pro!

That’s not to say that he didn’t love crashing into the table to make them all fall over while mommy was trying to build complex things. We’re still working on patience as a skill. 🙂

This set also comes with 6 little contraptions that remind me a bit of the game Mouse Trap, perfect for making your own Rube Goldberg style domino setups. These really take this set up a notch and are great for teaching your kid some basic physics and cause-and-effect.

The set includes (clockwise from top left): swinging arm, spinner, bell, ball with rails, stairs (upside down in the photo), and swinging log.

I definitely set these ones up, but with direction from my son. 😉 He’s a natural manager, what can I say.

And even though his face might not LOOK super excited in these photos, I promise you, he was so excited about all the different combinations we could put together!

Playing with the Hape Domino Set

Perfect wintertime activity for cold and snowy days! We also spent a lot of time stacking them up kind of like a house of cards and then driving cars into them to knock them down.

Verdict: Amazon’s STEM Toy Club is definitely a winner this month! There are so many different ways to play with this toy that it really has kept his attention; we’ve had hours of play with this toy alone in the last week. I know I loved these types of toys even when I was much older, so I really feel like this one might have some long-term staying power.

This month is a good value too – the full MSRP of this toy is twice the price of this subscription. This has overall been a nice way to build up our toy collection without spending a ton of cash, all while getting some cool toys that are sometimes harder to find in stores.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box: Based on feedback from other subscribers, we’ve learned that you might receive any of the toys featured in previous reviews as your first box for this subscription– not all subscribers receive the same toy each month.
Value Breakdown: We paid $19.99 and received the Hape Dynamo Dominoes Set which currently sells on Amazon for $34.99– a savings of $15.
If you like this box, you might also like: Tinker Crate (ages 9+), Groovy Lab in a Box (ages 8+), Bitsbox (ages 6-12)

  1. I’m going to subscribe to the 8-13 year old for my son who loves Science & Math, I’m hoping that even though he’s 13 that the sets will still hold his interest. Does anyone have experience with the the 8-13 year old sets?

    • I have been getting them for several months now and I LOVE them. Or more specifically, my 11 year old does. We have received so many great products and the value has been awesome!! This month we are receiving Thames & Kosmos Physics Workshop, cost $50.80 but our cost is $21.19. I will save it for Christmas along with a few others he has received, but I HIGHLY recommend this subscription. (we have also received a laser maze, mega fossil mine dig, snap circuits electricity, t-rex 36 inch model, and a Eiffel tower model)

  2. Hape toys are great! We got the My first science kit this month and my son loves it! This box is a great way to get new, high quality toys! I’d recommend to anyone 🙂

  3. I love the Amazon STEM toy club!! My son is in the 5-7 year age range and he has loved the 3 toys that he’s received so far. It is definitely an affordable way to get some wonderful, educational toys. I definitely recommend this to anyone that’s considering it!
