All of our children, both boys and girls benefit from having toys and games that work to break biases and inspire change. From huggable dolls that depict real life heroes to DIY crafts that help them learn while doing, we've rounded up some seriously fun ways to celebrate the hard-working, trailblazing women who have left their mark on the world.
