Empowered Play: Teaching Women's History With Toys and Games

From building sets to dolls, toys offer a fun new way to introduce kids to trailblazing women throughout history!

With all of the excitement, drama, and derring-do of women throughout history, why keep it to books? Women's history is full of impressive figures who smashed boundaries, stood up against injustice, and defiantly insisted on being true to themselves. When we pull their stories off the page, they become even more thrilling — and one way to do that is to bring women's history into the toy box! Dolls, games, building sets, and more provide a new way to spark an interest in women's history and a fun way to make these stories into part of day-to-day play. With options from toddlers to teens, the toys featured in this post will help kids discover remarkable women they may not have learned about in school, and introduce them to a variety of new role models to admire!

To deepen kids' understanding of the impact of the women featured in this blog post, and many others, visit our extensive History & Biography book collection.
