At Modern Kids Design, we value and celebrate diversity. That’s why we were excited to learn about MyFamilyBuilders, the new wooden block set that lets you represent the diversity among your family and friends.
My Family Builders: Diversity in Dolls
It began simply enough. Ez Karpf wanted to buy some toys for his friends’ kids. (Sound familiar, right?) What he really wanted to get them was a doll set that looked like their beautiful multiracial family. While searching store after store, he found that not only did no one have what he was looking for, but other types of families weren’t represented either. After discussing the problem with some friends, he came up with the idea for My Family Builders.
Fun and Educational
With the help of a child psychologist, an educational specialist, and an illustrator, Ez has brought My Family Builders to life. The magnetic wooden block sets comes with interchangeable legs, torsos, and heads so children can create characters that truly represent their families. The set also comes packaged with 5 games to help create teachable moments and encourage families to discuss diversity.
These lovely blocks allow children to explore and celebrate differences. We
currently carry just sold out of the 48-piece set that allows for over 2000 combinations! What do you think of the set? This game is so popular it has sold out almost everywhere! We expect it back in stock in a couple months. As always, feel free to reach out and let us know what you think, what you would like to read about and, of course, what you’d like us to carry at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for reading! 🙂
