Multicultural Holiday Gift Guide by Sonia Kang | November 24 2017, 0 Comments
Our multicultural holiday gift guide is chock full of great gift ideas.
This year's guide features everything from dolls to car seats, books to hair care products.
The guide serves as a resource to parents, caregivers and individuals on awesome gift ideas for children to see adequate representation of their cultural reality.
Our guide is an effort to develop and promote a broad range of brands that are making quality products with an understanding of the multicultural child in mind.
Studies show that children learn about the idea of race and to recognize physical differences at a very early age. This comes from observations and interactions with their parents, playmates, their families, and others so it's important to fill their environment with items that offer diverse items that reflect the world in which we live.

Growth in the hair care market is a beautiful testament to our country’s diversity.
The brands that focus on the multicultural child aid in positively shaping the way our children look and feel about themselves.
Positive conversations and examples about different hair types and styles during childhood also promote positive self esteem as children grow into adulthood.

Conversations about race is important. Research shows that a "color blind" approach is harmful.
Reading books can bring families closer together and foster an open communication between you and your child.
Conversations like these can also help your child better understand and appreciate the similarities and differences among the diverse folks we share the world with.

The idea of race is a highly charged and sensitive topic in the world right now.
Children are listening so it's a good time to start talking about race, identity, culture, diversity and inclusion.
Children are curious and open about the world and want to understand similarities and differences.
We encourage you to approach the topic of race openly and without judgement.
We hope the brands and products we shared will help you start the conversations and help our children today and in their future.
