STEM for Kids With Brown Toy Box! #BuyBlackFriday #BlackOwnedFriday

Black Toy Box has a mission “to normalize Black excellence and create prosperous career pathways for Black children through STEAM education, cultural representation and educational play.” They have subscription boxes, culturally presentative books, TEAM projects and activities, STEAM products, classroom décor and more!

Their STEAM products are wonderful introductions for curious kids. Here’s more from Brown Toy Box:

Brown Toy Box is working to normalize Black excellence, create pathways to prosperous careers, and expand Black children’s ideas of the possibilities for their lives. We do that through purposeful play, STEAM education and cultural representation. The characters represent 15 different STEAM theme and come from across the globe. The Dadisi Academy Crew were all developed with such intentionality to make sure that Black children across the world could finally see themselves positively represented in toys. The characters are essentially guides leading children to and through a journey exploring the STEAM fields that will be the future of work and that could change the economic trajectory of their lives. We are excited that moms and dads and the special adults in all children’s lives are so intentional about ensuring that their youngsters have a more diverse toy box than they had when they were children.
