Culturally Sensitive Toys

Embracing culture is given a fun, educational emphasis
Parents around the world are recognizing the importance of cultural sensitivity, and are often to finding ways to teach their children acceptance for all ethnicities. Though westernization has flooded international markets with an influx of North American and European products and children’s toys, there has been a growing adoption of symbols associated with other nations. This signifies a desire to embed cultural sensitive into children's mind during early development, hopefully working toward future equality.
