At GoldieBlox, their goal is to get girls building. They are here to help level the playing field in every sense of the phrase. By tapping into girls’ strong verbal skills, their story + construction set bolsters confidence in spatial skills while giving young inventors the tools they need to build and create amazing things.
In a world where men largely outnumber women in science, technology, engineering and math…and girls lose interest in these subjects as early as age 8, GoldieBlox is determined to change the equation. Construction toys develop an early interest in these subjects, but for over a hundred years, they’ve been considered “boys’ toys”. By designing a construction toy from the female perspective, they aim to disrupt the pink aisle and inspire the future generation of female engineers.
GoldieBlox believes there are a million girls out there who are engineers. They just might not know it yet. We think GoldieBlox can show them the way.

The ideas behind Club Penguin go back to 2000. But the real story began in 2005, when the three founders of Club Penguin started work on a virtual world. Their goal was to create a safe place where their own children and grandchildren could play, connect and have fun online. That mission will never change.
After months of building, researching and testing, Club Penguin opened to the public in October 2005. Thanks to great reviews from players and parents, word quickly spread.
In August 2007 Club Penguin joined the Walt Disney Company, which shares its commitment to family fun and safety. This partnership allowed Club Penguin to expand, and reach more players than ever before with the help of a little Disney magic. Less than a year later, Club Penguin opened its first international office in Brighton, England, to provide international player support.
At Club Penguin they believe everyone deserves a place to live, good health, an education, and hope for a brighter future. They also believe it’s fun to be a penguin! They are passionate about community, and they work hard to foster a culture of giving, both in the virtual world of Club Penguin and within our company.
CP Toys by Constructive Playthings is a branch of US Toy Company that revolves around education and fun. Constructive Playthings began in the 1950’s when founder Frances Klein recognized a need for quality educational resources for educators. Constructive Playthings was a strong catalyst in the educational movement towards quality supplies and materials for those who desired to teach in the early childhood field.
The need for CP Toys was recognized in 2011. Many parents desired to offer their children an experience that was both educational and fun. CP Toys offers a vast selection of educational toys that one would typically not find in a typical brick-and-mortar style toy stores. Many of the products offered by CP Toys are educational in nature, but appear no different to the child than a standard toy. The difference in CP Toys products and other toy stores’ products is that CP Toys believes that a child can have fun and still use toys for learning. Many of the toys in the CP Toys line enhance kids learning through sensory details, active play, and imagination enhancing.
It has always been the mission of US Toy Company to inspire learning, creativity, and fun. The CP Toys brand enhances this vision, and they hope that your children will enjoy playing with their new toys while learning at the same time.
