A toy like me

I’ve started looking out for toys and resources that positively represent different ethnicities, cultures and people with disabilities. As a children’s nurse inclusion and tolerance are very important values to ne which I want to pass on to children I am caring for. I have found they are generally much more expensive which is disappointing. However I found a campaign online called “a toy like me” which is asking toy manufacturers to include figures with disabilities as part of their range. I’m not currently a Facebook member but this page supports the campaign https://www.facebook.com/toylikeme/
I also read an article that says playmobil are bringing out a range of toys representing people with disabilities so watch this space!
