Children can learn various useful abilities and skills, such as problem-solving, teamwork, and hands-on operations during games. Now, many related manufacturers hope to incorporate the teaching aid concepts that were used in the classroom to introduce and educate esoteric subject knowledge into toys, because such toys are very popular in the United States and are becoming more popular. Adrienne Appell, a trend expert of the American Toy Association, said: “Toy manufacturers are constantly striving to find creative ways to integrate the five disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. The content of the subject is integrated into toys (ie STEM/STEAM teaching toys), adding to the educational and playability of the product.” At the same time, she also emphasized: “In addition to related toys based on science and mathematics, there are also some toys. Going further, educate children to be friendly, responsible, and to look at other cultures with an open mind to make the world a better place.'
