Their STEAM products are wonderful introductions for curious kids — here’s information on My Little Builder from Brown Toy Box:

This beautifully illustrated picture book teaches kids all about tools, how to fix things when they are broken and which tools to use for each problem. An adorable toddler loves to help his Dad fix stuff around the house so much so that he keeps finding things that are broken and need to be fixed. But there is a problem which tool does he need to fix this problem. The Toddler goes through all the household tools common in each and every household. By the end of the day, the toddler knows what each tool is used to fix. Wrenches, screwdrivers, hammers, scissors, paintbrush, pumps, saws, measuring taps, rulers, tweezers, drills and shovels as he and his Dad fix everything in the house.
