Kids will quickly discover that everyone is a little different so why not gift them books and toys that help them grow into a well-rounded child? This holiday season, parents and grandparents can take a walk down the toy aisle at Walmart or click on Amazon.com and discover the Kids For Culture collection. Their Top 5 Gift Picks are priced at $12.99 and under!
Each of the beautifully designed books and toys is sprinkled with a touch of diversity and self-awareness for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Instead of once upon a time, parents can read aloud M is for Mind. I can do anything I set my mind to in the award-winning ABC Affirmation Board Book. The ABC book with a twist was beloved by parent evaluators for National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA). “I think this affirmation book is great. It’s a great way to talk to your children about believing in themselves and celebrating their uniqueness and differences,” reviewed one parent.

¿Habla español? Bilingual babies and toddlers are the future in this global society. Little Lingo: A Language Book For Kids board book showcases four (!) different languages for everyday words. Soft books made to be touched are a specialty for Kids For Culture with two recommended titles. Affirmation & Shapes Sensory Panel Book and Soft Activity Book stimulate little fingers, eyes and ears. The books’ small size makes them perfect to tuck in the diaper bag or suitcase when traveling over the river and through the woods this holiday season.
Grownups understand that representation matters. It’s a fact that when children see books and toys that resemble them — their hair, their skin tone, their language – it makes a vivid and positive impact on their developing self-esteem and development. It’s what Kids For Culture calls fostering cultural competence. When tots embrace diversity, they can appreciate the richness it brings to their lives. Look for these Top 5 Kids For Culture gifts, below, in stock now and ready for gift giving!
