Playing with Confidence and Mattel

Thursday, March 1, 2012

Play time is a very important part of childhood.  These days, with such heavy schedules with homework, ball, dance, etc., it is hard for kids to find the time to play constructively with other kids. 

Below is an excellent video, on playing with confidence.  Lately, it seems with all the bullying going on in schools, and the whole 'grow up earlier' with girls and boys, they need to have the confidence to play and the time to play. Additionally, kids are so into video games these days, that there is very little outdoor play time with others.   I was very intrigued with the video and information that I learned.

At Mattel, they are creating the future of play! Nowhere is that more evident than in their global philanthropic efforts. Manufacturing safe and innovative toys is their purpose, and their philanthropic efforts allow them to make a positive social impact on children across the globe. They endeavor to help all children around the world to experience play – including bringing moments of joy to some of the one billion children who are considered in need. Mattel has partnered with a number of organizations to fulfill their mission of helping children, whether it’s through product donations, financial support, or global volunteer opportunities.

So, go!
