Toys that teach more

I’ve been encouraged to see a twist in the buzz-phrase, “Play with a purpose,” that has been embraced by parents and teachers.

STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) toys are still popular. But a new layer has been added onto many playthings. An increasing number of toys are teaching kids how to make a difference.

Common themes are kindness, helpfulness and courtesy. If this generation grows up with these virtues, there are additional reasons to be optimistic about the future.
