I received a Roominate Helicopter for this review, all opinions are my own.
Leah absolutely loves to build things. Lately she has loved playing with all sorts of construction toys. She was so excited to get the Roominate Helicopter to build. Leah is getting very independent and doesn’t want much help when she is building things. I love that she is using her imagination to creatively build either from scratch or by using the directions.
Leah loved building the Roominate Helicopter with a little help from Mom and Dad. She was excited to design it and then have us help bring her design to life. I sometimes notice there aren’t very many construction or building toys for girls until now! This really helps Leah to develop problem solving skills and figure out what goes where.
“The Roominate 3-in-1 Helicopter makes flying to another land or cruising under the sea a possibility! By wiring a spinning propeller with the included motor and connecting the design pieces, girls can create their dream helicopter, airplane, or submarine for open-ended, imaginative play.

Leah had so much fun building this fun airplane! Charlotte and Leah both had so much fun playing with it!
“Alice Brooks and Bettina Chen met and became friends in the master’s engineering program at Stanford. As two of the few women in the program, they compared stories on why they had pursued engineering. They were both inspired by their childhood toys.
In the US, less than 15% of women enter college intending to major in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) field. Alice and Bettina believe the gender gap starts young. Many girls’ toys lag behind in the development of spatial skills, hands-on problem solving skills, and confidence with technology. These are exactly the skills that Roominate aims to develop.
Roominate’s unique blend of building, circuits, design, crafts, storytelling, and creativity teaches kids while they play. Using motor and light circuits, modular furniture building pieces and walls, Roominate empowers kids to build endless amazing creations!
- Hands-On Problem Solving

Alice and Bettina designed Roominate to inspire the next generation of innovators.” (Roominate Website)
