Lego Curiosity set available 1/1

lego_mars_curiosity_rover_1-620x517Lego’s releasing set #21104, a replica of the Curiosity rover currently terrorizing Martians as it pokes, prods, and vaporizes the surface with its laser beam while they do their best to avoid its cameras 😉 .  It’s available on January 1st for $30 from the Lego Store.  What’s really cool though is that this set started life as a fan-designed model over at Cuusoo and was designed by one of the mechanical engineers who worked on the actual rover.

GoldieBlox: The Engineering Toy for Girls

There’s a great project on Kickstarter right now called GoldieBlox, and it, quite simply is a toy for girls age 5-9 designed to help them develop an interest in engineering and solving problems.  I love it, and hope they succeed in getting fully funded on Kickstarter so this can be brought to market.  Check it out here.
