These July 2016 educational toys range from smart alphabet tools to coding character Barbies that reject stereotypical gender roles. In addition to products like a gaming developer Barbie that encourages girls to embrace career paths that can mostly be dominated by the opposite sex, other standouts include DIY coding t-shirts that can be customized by kids while teaching them about engineering basics.

Additional notables include classroom 3D printers and interactive toy blocks that are digitally connected to teach kids about structural fundamentals while simultaneously enhancing their overall play experience.

Other July 2016 educational toys include buildable space station modules that encourage hands-on play and strategic learning. Playmobil's 'Space Rocket with Launch Site' toy is a great example that introduces kids to space travel while encouraging creativity and customization.
