What is The Multicultural Toybox?
The Multicultural Toybox was founded as a resource for savvy parents looking for multicultural, ethnic, or antiracist dolls, toys, and games. It has evolved to encompass commentary, book and media recommendations, and other relevant resources for progressive parents and teachers struggling to develop thoughtful kids.
