Deluxe Roominate is just that - Deluxe! Create and design your own dollhouse, then, wire it however you choose! Add REAL energy with light, an elevator that works, machines that move. Kids engineer greatness!
From the Manufacturer
Roominate is the DIY wired dollhouse building kit that gets girls excited about STEM. Through hands-on building and circuits, Roominate brings together creativity, engineering, and most importantly, fun! Roominate is designed by Alice and Bettina, two female engineers from Caltech, MIT, and Stanford with a mission to inspire the next generation of female technology innovators.
The Deluxe Roominate contains everything your daughter needs to build her own miniature room. With twice as many building pieces and circuits as the Basic Roominate, she can build and wire up even more furniture and contraptions for her creation! Build more bunk beds, longer water slides, and bigger staircases, or wire up a working elevator and lamp with the motor and light circuits. The wall and floor panels can even be configured to build two-level structures, balconies, or backyards. The possibilities are endless! See more ideas on the Roominate website, along with pictures of what other girls have made!
Roominate has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and more!
The statistics are shocking: less than 15% of female first-year college students intend to major in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). As two female engineers, Alice and Bettina have seen firsthand this disproportionately low number of women and came together to create a solution.
The two realized their love for engineering was influenced by the toys they played with as kids, toys that built confidence with hands-on problem solving and creativity. Alice had her own saw as an eight-year-old, and Bettina played with her brother's hand-me-down Lego and Lincoln Logs. They set out to make these same experiences that inspired them accessible to all girls today. With Roominate, they’re giving little girls the opportunity to engineer and create on their own. They’re inspiring the next generation of female technology innovators.
Roominate teaches hands-on problem solving and circuits, develops spatial skills, and builds confidence!

It prompts open ended creative play. She built her first room, papered and decorated it and then started looking around for other things she had for her play. After deciding on a few Lego figurines, she started building furniture. (We're saving the circuits for her playtime with her dad because that's his passion. He'd love to have this special "first" with her I think.) I called today and she's still excited about it. She sent me a few texts bubbling about play and wanting to talk. She just turned six if that gives you an idea. I think even a young child would enjoy this set with help and will definitely grow into doing builds, decorating, cutting, etc. as she gets older.
This set lends itself to lots of different types of builds. You can easily add more decorative paper and any other art supplies you like. You may find your child looking at boxes too in different ways. I can't wait to see what she does when she gets to start playing with the wiring. This is a great toy. I think it will beome a new classic.
The one con is that it doesn't come with batteries. For the price of nearly $50, that was a bit disappointing. If you order, check the batteries you'll need and take care of that too so your girl can hit the ground running.
