steam-accredited-badgeMay 9, 2024 | Toy and game companies are invited to submit products for consideration in The Toy Association’s “Back to School STEAM Toy Shopping List.” The deadline for submissions is May 26.

Unveiled in August, the list will be a valuable resource for families and educators looking for fun and educational toys to keep kids’ minds sharp ahead of a new academic year. The featured playthings, which successfully incorporate STEAM principles that encourage learning and creativity, will be marked with an official “STEAM stamp of approval” from The Toy Association’s STEAM Accreditation Program, developed in collaboration with The Good Play Guide.

The “Back to School STEAM Toy Shopping List” will be promoted through a variety of ways, including being featured in The Toy Association’s Toy News Tuesday newsletter, prioritized for TV segments with the Association’s trends team, featured on the STEAM Accredited Toys Storefront on Amazon (if the toy is sold on Amazon), and promoted on The Genius of Play’s website and social media channels.

The deadline to submit products — including both the online form and product samples — is May 26, 2024. Questions can be directed to
