Create-a-Crew

Ez Karpf created this set of mix-and-match wooden pieces after he went in search for a toy for his friends' kids and couldn't find anything that represented their multiracial family. Each set is made of magnetic wooden pieces that can be combined to create literally thousands of combinations (over 2,000 with the 48-piece set and over 1,000 with the 32-piece set). Kids can build a crew that looks like their family, school, or neighborhood, making it a fun way for parents and educators to start conversations about diversity and love. Designed in San Francisco; made in China.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.

Over a year ago, Ez Karpf 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, Ez came up with the idea of an open-ended educational wooden toy that would encourage young children to embrace family diversity through play.
