STEM Items from BrightMinds
I can not stress enough about STEM. As you know, STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. So to get your child interested in STEM, why not get them to learn through play! Hence I have ordered a few BrightMinds educational toys for my children. We have the Human Anatomy model, Tiger Anatomy model, a useful Beamie and Key Stage 3 books.
We love these realistic build-your-own models. They are not only educational, but they are also great for display. Also, as the days are getting darker earlier, let the Beamie hat brighten your path! It is unisex and one size fits all. It is just perfect for Mr K to use it on his way to school.

Harry Potter 3D Knight Bus Puzzle RRP £24.99
The authentic-looking purple, triple-decker bus may not feature seats during the day or beds at night, but for the Muggle world, it offers a fun puzzling experience. The 216 high-quality plastic pieces are shaped to fit together perfectly to create a realistic model of the bus as imagined by J.K. Rowling in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Each puzzle piece is printed with a number on the reverse side, so you can either assemble the puzzle by eye or just by following the numbers. Ms C sorted them out by putting them in 1- 9, 10 – 19 etc! She then took nearly 30 minutes to piece them together with a little help from me to bend certain puzzle pieces. She had a great time making it! This moving bus can either be used as a display or storage container! Great for any HP fans!
It is available to buy from Smyths Toys, good toy retailers and Amazon.
