Just like it’s necessary to stock our children’s libraries with diverse literature, it’s also important to do the same with the toys that our children play with. Playtime is a learning experience and by stocking the playroom with diverse and multicultural toys, it will help teach kids about the world around them. Diversify your kid’s toy box with these fun and educational toys that celebrate differences.
