Arch stackers of different skin tones may be a perfect cause to talk with your child. Although the details are painted in different hues they all are similar and equal, and made of the same material. People may have different colors of skin, eyes or eye cuts, hair, beliefs or sweethearts, but we all have red blood in our veins and our hearts beat in the same rhythm. It is more than just a simple stacker – it plants the ideas of equality and importance of every man into little minds.
How to play:
Put the upper arch on top of your head and try to walk through the room
While playing, discuss what equality and diversity mean

For our toys we use just solid wood and non-toxic water-based paint or oil. We keep the wood pattern and tactility in each toy. We are against wood wasting, so we use wood with dark knots. It is natural and beautiful.
For packing we use cardboard boxes in different colors or hand sewn cotton bags.
