When Debbie Sterling's high-school math teacher encouraged her to pursue a career as an engineer, she wondered what was so lucrative about conducting trains. She was a very smart young woman––she got into Stanford, ultimately, as an engineer––but, before that conversation with her teacher, nobody had ever really explained to her what an engineer was. Throughout her career at Stanford, she was struck by the paucity of women who shared her program, and began to suspect that there was a problem with the way little girls were taught about the possibilities in the world. She thought back to the toy store aisles she had frequented as a child, completely pink and containing only dolls and their accessories. She wanted to make a toy for girls that broke that mold and, possibly, might inspire another generation of young women to become engineers. Thus GoldieBlox was born.
GoldieBlox building toys combine a story-driven theme that appeals to girls' strong verbal skills with the fun of building that all kids enjoy. Most sets include an educational mechanical element in addition to the challenge of assembly; kids can build dunk tanks and other items using their imagination for endless hours of fun. The company's signature toy adds an element of spacial awareness to the mix, as kids use the belt drive concept to construct a customizable spinning machine that sends Nacho and all of Goldie’s friends spinning.
