Twenty One Toys creates toys and workshops that teach 21st-century skills like – empathy, failure, creative dialogue and collaboration. We believe toys can do serious things, and that they are underused tools in the classroom, the boardroom, and beyond. Our guiding principle is that play is a unique medium to foster abstract thinking, advance difficult conversations, honor diversity, and encourage positive risk-taking.
Already in over 300 schools, our first toy, the Empathy Toy, has broken ground and proven that toys can teach the soft skills that textbooks can’t. The toy has been featured in the Huffington Post, Fast Company, Ashoka and TEDx, twice.
