  1. I applaud you wonderful young innovators. I have been a female who has lived 6 decades truly prefering building, fixing, innovating and “seeing” other uses for ordinary objects we take for granted. I am so very happy that my daughter has selected her path in Engineering… When I was a growing up girls became teachers, nurses and secretaries and for the most part were denied spots in the most competitive math classes. The result being, I followed the path of becoming a teacher, a profession that I enjoy and that served me well in guiding my daughters into fields that THEY wanted to explore. My daughter had the opportunity to take the most competitive math and science classes offered because of her ability, not her gender. I am pleased that she lives in a generation that is beginning to live by this as well.

    I would very much like to offer my expertise as a teacher, a mother and as a father, since I did both!

    Our credo was and still is “Us girls can do anything”!

  2. Love this! I stumbled across this blog (blox) online and would love to somehow be a part of the brilliant initiative. I work in supply chain at Micorosft. Ping me if I can help and keep me informed of innovations..
    good luck!

  3. We’re a gaggle of volunteers and starting a brand new scheme in our community. Your web site offered us with valuable info to work on. You have done an impressive job and our whole neighborhood will probably be thankful to you.

  4. Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive read something like this before. So good to search out any individual with some unique ideas on this subject. realy thank you for beginning this up. this website is something that is needed on the net, someone with somewhat originality. useful job for bringing one thing new to the internet!

  5. Fantastic project, congrats & good luck! I am an experienced early childhood educator & would be happy to lend a hand in the realm of early childhood development. Building & tinkering are such multi-faceted skills for young children and I am always encouraging the girls in my class to try constructing. Again, I think this is a wonderful idea & I would be happy to help however you could use it!

  6. You are an inspiring young woman and I look forward to watching your inevitable rise to the top. Your product sounds amazing and I will be pre-ordering one soon. However, the one thing I couldnt find in any of my research is where the toys are being manufactured. Please tell me its Made in the USA!

  7. Hi GoldieBlox (and Debbie!) I absolutely LOVE this initiative! I would love to help in any way I can! I have solid 3D modeling skills, which could be helpful for future products, and have a strong background in both illustration and graphic design, as well as a passion for engineering, programming, and logic puzzles of all types! (I work in the video game industry, so those interests tend to come with the territory). If there is any way I can help out (free of charge, I just love this cause!), please let me know!!!! – RomanLionz@Gmail.com. I am definitely buying a few of these kits for the young future engineers in my life đŸ™‚ thank you!!!!

  8. This is an amazing idea. I am an alum of Phi Sigma Rho (women in engineering sorority) and would love to somehow get involved with this. I want my daughter to have this when she’s old enough!

  9. I love the idea of your product! I am finishing my masters in civil engineering so am very familiar with the gender disparity in these fields. While I don’t feel girls are actively excluded from STEM, our culture does nothing to encourage them to consider these traditionally masculine careers. Goldie Blox is a great step to introduce girls to interesting and rewarding careers. I wish there was a way I could help and you all the best.

  10. I am a mother of three young girls (5, 5 and 3) living over in the East Bay. If you ever need access to focus groups whether it is moms or daughters of different ages, I would love to help! This is a fabulous toy and I can’t wait to buy one for my girls! PS…definitely reach out to Golden Apple in Pleasanton. The owner is fabulous and he will love this toy! Congrats!

  11. I am a gifted intervention specialist with 32 years of teaching experience, a master’s degree in curriculum and development, and a passion for children’s literature. I am also the mother of an 18-year-old daughter who was raised with a variety of toys, both gender-specific (trucks AND dolls) and gender-neutral (Legos and art supplies). I have long been an advocate for gender equal opportunities (or how about just encouraging all children to develop their own personal interests in a way that suits them?) and am thrilled to have stumbled upon your website. I would be happy to offer assistance in story development and alignment with learning targets. As you well know, tiaras go with everything, including tool belts!

  12. I am a Project Contract Administer (Technical Sales & Customer Relations) for Pressure Safety Relief Valves for the Oil and Gas Industries. I started my Under-Grad in Physics & finished in Business Management after my divorce. I had to decide between Physics and Art, as I loved them both, when beginning my education. Being a woman with a love of Science I was encouraged to go that route, but I had no clue what an Engineer was when I began my Under-Grad degree. I have always loved to make things, which is why I am in Manufacturing. I work very closely with our companies Engineers, but there is not one female among them at my company.

    I love what you are doing with this product! I have a ten year old daughter, who steals her twelve year old brother’s Lego’s, since she doesn’t have enough of her own (They have the same amount). She scored a perfect on the State math exam last year, but continues to claim she doesn’t like math. I wish we could do more to encourage her skills with more than just puzzles, and building toys. How do we encourage the schools and our society that these are fun and important skills for everyone?

    I am encouraging my three year old daughter, just as I encouraged her ten year old sister, with skills in creativity and mathematics. I just hope to hear she likes math instead of just being good at it like her sister claims.

    My background has made me very skilled in Supply Chain, from Order Entry and Procurement, to Total Quality Management and Expediting delivery. Please let me know if you require further assistance in this area of your business!

  13. couldn’t find where else to tell you my granddaughter’s story with Goldie Blox. So here goes D.S. and the troops. My granddaughter is 5 years old and just started kindergarten last week. I told her that I had found a book that helped teach people how to build machines and that I had purchased a copy just for her. She asked if she would be making a machine and I answered affirmatively. She was very impatient for the 2 weeks or so that it ended up taking to find half an hour in our time together to approach this book/experiment. I care for her two younger brothers and her 3 days a week and sometimes things were so hectic that I didn’t want to introduce Goldie Blox to her and have it interrupted, chaotic and hurried. Well today, was the day!!!!! She had been presenting me with interesting beebobs here and there for some time and saying save this for our machine..beads, sticks, lids, etc. and a rock. She asked where her things were and I told her that before we could work on her special machine we had to learn how to build our first machine and that is what this book was for. I started reading it to her and she stopped ;me and ran to get a small notebook and a red pen. Every few minutes or so she would madly make doodles, I thought, and markings on her pad of paper as we read and finally I said that maybe it would be better to work with Goldie Blox on another day. She looked up in surprise and asked why and kind of whined about it. I told her that I felt she wasn’t really paying attention whereupon she scooted closer to me and said Loook! I am making drawings and notes about important things so we can look at it later on. Well what I thought was inattentiveness was her attention to detail (and a little type A personality)– Who knew????? So we continued and she was so excited for each part, especially when we added the washers and things spun more smoothly …. she commented that she thought the pieces were clean but maybe we should wash them all if the washers helped the spools work better. Trust a 5 year old to take the part name. literally. Moving the machine to a table helped as well as when we were working on the floor she tended to pull the ribbon in an slightly upward direction which tended to tangle things up a bit. She was so excited with her end product and rewound it and showed it to each adult who came through my door that evening. She took her notes with her when she left so I assume that we will be starting her own machine soon — Heaven help us all!!! Just wanted you to know what a wonderful memory you made for us and who know where her overactive imagination will take this spark of knowledge. Thank you, Lisa Walker and my granddaugher, Lorelei.

  14. I am so excited for you, I am active in my community as a rare female saxophonist, producer, composer as well as a visual artist, freelance graphic designer, photographer, videographer and I would love to get involved. I am also a mom! I’m not too far, over in Sacramento. Whether it’s music, lyrics, writing, illustrating, textile design (screen/vinyl graphics) Oh, the list of ideas how I may be of service goes on. My music is here: http://AvaLemert.com my graphics: http://acdcgraphics.com and tons of other places online if you google ” Ava Lemert ” Cheers! ava@avalemert.com – Ava
