San Francisco, August 25, 2015 (Newswire.com) - MyFamilyBuilders, the creators of toys for a better tomorrow, today announced the launch of their Kickstarter campaign, MyFamilyBuilders: A Wooden Toy That Celebrates Diversity!. Through this campaign, the company hopes to raise $25,000 to fund production of new educational toys that will teach family diversity to kids and include today’s millions of blended, multi-racial and LGBT families.
Not all families look alike, so why do doll sets all look the same: one mom, one dad, a boy and a girl from the same race? Unfortunately, these toys impose limitations on a child's understanding of family. The team at MyFamilyBuilders wants to remove these limitations, and to do so, they created a toy-set that encourages children to imagine and build all sorts of different characters and families. The MyFamilyBuilders toy-set encourages kids to embrace family diversity and celebrate differences through the most natural way of learning in early ages: play.
The MyFamilyBuilders toy-set includes 48 magnetic wooden blocks that easily snap together to let kids build the characters and families of their choosing and 5 educational card games that create "teachable-moments" for parents to help their children understand the importance of celebrating differences. The target age range is 3 to 7 years old, but younger and older children can enjoy them too.
“Our toy-set will bring the opportunity for parents and kids to discover family diversity through play, we believe this is key to preventing biases in new generations. The world is evolving and we believe toys should evolve with the world, we think it is important for kids to play with toys that reflect the world they live in today!” said Ez Karpf, Inventor of MyFamilyBuilders. “We received great feedback from kids, parents and education specialists; they all love the toy, the idea behind it and its educational value, and kids can’t stop playing with it.”
The Kickstarter campaign aims to raise the necessary funds to fulfill the minimum order required by the manufacturer and get the MyFamilyBuilders toy-set out the door and into the hands of kids. The manufacturer is ready to begin, so once our goal has been reached, the funds will go directly to the toy production, certification costs and shipping costs.
