'MyFamilyBuilders' is an educational, diversity-teaching tool perfect for parents and kids of all ages. Playing with the toys is easy, as each piece is magnetic and can attach onto any of the other pieces.

The characters in the set are all of different cultural backgrounds, and kids have the ability to mix and match each piece. In a fun and interactive manner, parents will be able to use these toys to teach kids about diversity.

MyFamilyBuilder creators wanted to challenge the typical familial archetype of two parents and two children, all of whom are the same race. Through experiential playing, children will be able to create different types of familial structures. More importantly, through the playing process, parents can teach their children about diversity in a positive manner.
