  1. I am so very excited for you. I can’t wait to see what the ratio of female to male enigineers will be in 10 years. I think you have found a way to make a spark happen. When I started working as an engineer in 1982 I was one female of 42 engineers in our department. Guess what I got the decorating projects, they were sure I would enjoy them more….. I argued and my next project was working with 10 foot diameter gears that were 60 years old, much more interesting than painting and ordering furniture. I believe the ratio in 1983 was about 10% and I don’t think it has changed much. I think you and Goldie will spark a change.

  2. can’t wait to buy the game for our daughter. We live in New Zealand and haven’t been able to order with NZ credit card. We can’t wait to get it here!

  3. Kudos! I think this is awesome and much needed. My only suggestion (and I have not seen the book so perhaps you’ve already addressed this) is that Goldi be showing wearing a variety of outfits from jeans to skirts to dresses to ballerina outfits and princess dressses. To be a truley great female role model, she should also demonstrate that girls don’t have to wear boy clothes -i.e. bib overalls, to be successful engineers.

  4. Ours arrived today, March 19! My visiting grand daughters, ages 3 and 4, are totally engaged. Such fun to watch their eyes light up with their successes at problem solving!

  5. Even if a girl plays with this and becomes a physicist or a piano technician instead of an engineer, it will expand her mind and open her world to endless possibilities. Go GoldieBlox!!
