diversity, equity & inclusion
The world is changing for the better, and people from all walks of life are coming together. Preparing your kids for the changing world and the different cultures and individuals they’ll meet is essential — and the right products can help you achieve your goals.
The Importance of Multicultural Learning
Celebrate diversity in your home and classroom using Really Good Stuff educational products. Thoughtfully planned and quality-constructed, these dolls, books, costumes and more teach preschool-aged children and older kids about the variety of ethnicities and cultures around the world and in their classroom.
Multicultural education is an excellent way to foster understanding and acceptance of different races, beliefs and traditions, while also inspiring positive social interaction among students. Knowledge about other cultures encourages students to think critically rather than default to categorizing people and lifestyles different than their own.
Diversity Learning Can Start Early
Appreciating diversity in life can begin almost as soon as kids are born, with the help of soft, colorful and engaging dolls for toddlers, like our Excellerations African-American Girl Cuddle Buddy, Our Soft Family Dolls, and Caucasian Girl and Boy Puppet Pair.
For kindergarteners and early-elementary-grade students, appreciating diversity in the classroom comes from engaging in lessons about different worldwide cultures. These studies can be brought to life with engaging costume dress-up using the Excellerations German Girl Costume, Mexican Girl Costume or Peruvian Boy Costume.
Your students can learn some simple facts about the culture represented by their costume, or they can stage an interactive play with students in costume talking about a tradition or other aspect of that ethnic group. Either way, they will be expanding their knowledge base and learning something new and exciting about a culture that differs from theirs.
We offer many other great tools for social-emotional development and learning that are directly related to building understanding and empathy for others regardless of ethnic, cultural or lifestyle differences, including the disabled population. Check out our books and puzzles such as the Countries of the World (set of 8 books) paperbacks, Excellerations Photographic Multi-Cultural World Puzzles (set of 9) or the Disabilities and Differences Books (5 titles).
A Great Selection of Multicultural Activities and Learning Tools
At Really Good Stuff®, some of the other tools we offer both readers and non-readers include games, posters and craft supplies for introducing and reinforcing diversity learning. Take a look at the Listening Lotto Game - Community Helpers, which teaches children about a variety of peoples’ jobs and the ways they help others in society.

Technology is only going to continue to advance, which will make the world a "smaller" place. Make sure your kids are ready for the new world. Given them the knowledge that will prepare them to be kinder and more accepting of others for the rest of their lives.
