Amazon Prime Day STEM Toy Deals – 2022

It’s here again! Amazon Prime Day 2022 is July 12th and 13th.

It’s 48 hours of highly anticipated deals with deep discounts.

If you’re unfamiliar with Amazon Prime Day, it’s two full days where they slash the prices on many popular products. We’re going to be keeping an eye out for the top-selling STEM toys and learning robotics.

While it doesn’t officially start until the 21st, Amazon has already begun ramping up the deals now. Check out Amazon’s official Prime Day page here.

Do I Have to Be an Amazon Prime Member?

Only Amazon Prime members can really take advantage of Prime Day. The good news is it’s easy to sign up, and Amazon offers new members a 30-day free Prime member trial.

You’ll get all the benefits of full membership with your free trial. If you want to cancel after Amazon Prime Day is over, you’ll still receive your purchased items at a discount.

How Do I Prepare for Amazon Prime Day?

First, make sure your membership is in order and, if not, hop on the 30-day free trial.

Generally, if you can hold off on buying anything from Amazon, it’s best to wait for Prime Day. Even 3rd partly sellers that aren’t participating can still have a sight discount on their items.

Watch Out for Lightning Deals

If you’re new to Amazon Prime, a Lightning Deal is a promotion in which a limited number of discounts are offered on an item for a short period.

So if you see an item you want during a lightning deal, you need to act fast! If an item is deeply discounted or desirable, it can go fast.

To read about Amazon lightning deals, you can check out their official terms of service.

Ok, let’s get into the STEM toys!

If you’re looking for some educational activities for your little ones, I have just the thing! Please take a look at my FREE STEM activities eBook that I made with my kids. You can download it here:

Wonder Workshop Dash

Wonder Workshop Dash

Dash is the original Wonder Workshop robot. It’s targeted for ages 6 & up.

It’s cute, fast, and programmable.

Are you worried about not knowing how to code yourself? No problem! The in-app challenges will guide your learner through a sequence of new challenges.

Dash also includes a microphone so you can playback recordings and have your little bot talk. If you have multiple children in your family or a neighbor down the street, Wonder Workshop dash can also interact with other bots! The creative opportunities for Dash are endless!

This Amazon Prime Day is also your best chance for this deal. The STEAM Creativity Bundle includes flash bards with Dash.

This is a popular kit for hands-on technology learning fun for kids.

All you need to get started is the Makey Makey board, alligator clips, a USB cable, and your imagination. The Makey Makey kit comes with everything you need!

I did a full review for Makey Makey as they gain traction in the learning space lately. You can read my full in-depth review here.

This is a hands-on learning robot to build and customize. The rover is recommended for 8+ as it comes with detailed instructions your kid can complete on their own.

Marble run stem toy prime day deal

This Marble Run set has no electronics, is modular designed, your kid can build what they want, and best of all, screen-free learning.

This stem toy is laid out in a hexagonal grid and is definitely unique. The layout takes a bit of thinking at first to get the pieces appropriately oriented.

LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox, Robot Building Set

amazon prime day deal LEGO boost robot

This robot is perfect for your future little scientists! Ideally, the set is targeted for 7-12-year-olds. I love this kit because it’s multi-dimensional.

Your child can build and code the robot in five different ways, allowing for change and excitement with every new model. A phone or tablet is necessary in order to create the robot, so keep that in mind if you’re considering this purchase.

Check the availability of the LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox on Amazon here.
