With a mission to educate young girls in STEM, the educational toy for kids 'Raina to the Rescue' was created. This toy takes a hands-on approach to learning, making use of "21st century learning, active learning and role modeling" to bring math and science into play for girls between the ages of six and 10.

During the research process for the creation of this toy, the creators discovered that many young girls quickly develop strong reading and verbal skills and enjoy historical lessons such as the ones taught by American Girl dolls. As such, the toy was developed to make the most of these strengths.

As announced through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, all Raina to the Rescue toys will combines a story with a hands-on activity. The first kit takes girls on a journey to help to mend the leg of a wounded horse by making notes, taking an X-ray and creating a cast for the animal.
