These toys and activities for kids put an emphasis on fostering a sense of team play from an early age, teaching invaluable skills for socializing, schooling and beyond. Toys that promote teamwork also inspire collaboration between team members, as well as communication, positive attitudes, friendly competition and patience, since inevitably, someone will have to sit and wait for their turn.

Some of the most dynamic teamwork toys include the No Picnic Alma Social Swing, which requires a team of two to work in unison in order to get the momentum going, Konnekt Toys, which brings kids in isolated hospital units together for a collaborative game, or LED laser tag that makes the game more inclusive to bigger groups of kids in schoolyards by using "guns" that don't resemble traditional laser tag guns.
