Toys representing handicapped children

The “Toy Like Me” campaign have asked to have more toys representing children with handicaps or disablilities. That way those kids ca, have dolls and characters they can relate to in a positive way, which is good for their image.

This is a recent message from the Playmobil Company in the UK:

“We always take on board a lot of feedback from children and fans across the world and design our toys to reflect this. The “Toy Like Me” campaign has been inspiring for us – we’ve listened to our audience and are delighted to offer our full support.

We are in the planning stages to release a PLAYMOBIL set which will include characters with disabilities, with part of the profits to be donated to a charity hand-selected by “Toy Like Me”. And moving forward, we will be looking into including more characters with disabilities in our ranges.

We receive a lot of positive comments from guardians of deaf and disabled children on how well our toys stimulate their learning and creativity, so we are thrilled to be able to champion their representation in the toy box.”

Spray-painting the dreams of the homeless

Anonymous Los Angeles street artist Skid Robot wants to “ignite a global revolution of compassion.” The artist brings attention to the issues of homelessness by making Skid Row his canvas and its inhabitants his muses. Best known for his graffiti, Skid Robot gives food, money, and toiletries to homeless people on Skid Row and then includes them in paintings done around their makeshift homes. Skid Robot will sometimes ask his models about their dreams and incorporate that into his pieces. While a painting of a warm bed doesn’t compare with the real thing, he is fund-raising for a documentary about homelessness.

 

Citizens of the world now have a flag… the flag for Planet Earth!

earth flag

A designer from Sweden has made a flag for our planet.

It is bright blue, to remind us og the water on our planet, and to stnad out against the white of astronauts’ suits and against the black of outer space.

It has interconnected circles to remind us that humans can be united.

It has been floated in space, in Antartica, all around the planet, and you can have it on your front porch!
