WHAT'S THIS STEAM STUFF ABOUT?
Simply put STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) are the careers of the future. Brown Toy Box is creating toys, books, games, experiences and content all the equip children to confidently explore STEAM activities so that they will feel empowered to those majors in college and later, those careers as adults.
WHY EDUCATIONAL PLAY?
Acclaimed children’s television host, one of America’s most beloved television teachers used to say, “Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” We agree! We believe that anyplace a child experiences on a regular basis, be it the toy box, the toy aisle, the classroom or the television (or any screen), they should see themselves positively represented. We know that play is where children get their sense of who they are, and their place in the world. When children don’t see themselves represented in toys, this erasure makes them feel “othered” as if these things are not meant for them. Brown Toy Box is creating products, games, content and experiences that leverage educational play in order to expose children to boldly chase every dream.
