SKILLS AND DEVELOPMENT
A toy that celebrates diversity, and now children can imagine and build all kinds of families and learn that differences are something to be celebrated. Half of the flash cards show pictures of families that are varied and diverse: some families have two dads, some have two moms, some have one parent, some have a mom and a dad; some adult partners are the same race, other partners are interracial; some families all have the same skin color, others are multiracial. Children are instructed to build the families illustrated on the flashcards using the blocks as a matching game. The other half of the flash cards show families with one or two people left blank and children are offered the opportunity to create the missing family members.
