Toy Association's new Diversity & Inclusion Committee

Several months ago, I approached the Toy Association with a like-minded colleague asking to spearhead a Diversity & Inclusion committee for the industry.  We were met with a very enthusiastic YES!  Wonder Crew's mission has always been centered on inclusion, gender balance, representation and expanding play.  When we get diversity and inclusion right, EVERYONE benefits.

Earlier this month, we received a heart warming note from the principal at St. Michael's Catholic School in Brattleboro, Vermont... "I am so excited for our children to have some lovely dolls to care for! I am especially grateful for all of our students to see a nice diverse collection of dolls on our shelves for choice time and for the boys to learn that caring for someone else is not a 'girl thing'- it's a 'human thing'!  The children immediately fell in love with their new buddies and the idea of becoming superheroes." How awesome is this?!  LOVE seeing Wonder Crew in...
