In 2015, the founder of My Family Builders was looking for presents for his friends’ children. He just assumed he would be able to find a doll set that would resemble their multiracial family. He tried store after store, but couldn’t find a single one that even came close. Not only that, he also realized that there weren’t toys that represented families with two dads or two moms, single-parent families, or blended families. He discussed this dilemma with some friends and together, they were inspired to do something about it. After long deliberations on design, child psychology, and education, they came up with the idea of an open-ended educational wooden toy that would encourage young children to embrace family diversity through play.
