The holidays are a great opportunity to bless the children in our lives with gifts that are not only fun but also build their sense of self. Here are just a few products we love for the positive images they provide for our kids.
Puzzle Huddle Multicultural Puzzles
Puzzle Huddle was founded by a dad that loved doing puzzles with his kids but recognized a lack of diversity in the characters. The company offers puzzles with multicultural characters such as a pilot, chemist, doctor, veterinarian, lawyer, astronaut and more in a variety of sizes and designs.
Afros, Braids, & Curls ABCs for Curly Girls Book
Author Daniela Lopez wrote her first children’s book, Afros, Braids & Curls ABCs for Curly Girls, to promote self-love and pride in our girls. The book teaches the ABCs through beautiful hand-drawn illustrations to accompany each letter.
Bino & Fino DVD
Bino and Fino is a cartoon about a brother and sister living in a city in Africa. The show teaches about Africa, science, self-esteem and more in a fun and positive way. Fino rocks two mega afro puffs, and the characters can be seen wearing braids, Bantu knots, and headwraps. The show is available on DVD, and the characters can be purchased as dolls.
Rahel is a beautiful doll from the Hearts for Hearts series. She comes with a mini book with her story, including her dreams of becoming a doctor. This doll quickly became my daughter’s BFF, carried around everywhere.
