The effectiveness of GoldieBlox isn’t based on assumption. We spent a year researching gender differences, talking with Harvard neuroscientists, and observing children’s play patterns. GoldieBlox stories leverage girls’ advanced verbal skills to help develop and build self-confidence in their spatial skills.
