It’s Genius of Play Week on the “Power Kid Podcast” presented by the Toy Book. This week, host Phil Albritton of Power Kid Design welcomes four committee members representing The Toy Association’s Genius of Play initiative and its ongoing mission to provide families with the information and inspiration they need to make play an important part of their kid’s day. This month represents a milestone for the organization as the Genius of Play pulls back the curtain on its newly minted Play Ambassadors — a group of exceptional individuals who are toy experts and champions of the power of play.
In this episode, Albritton is joined by Melissa Hunter, YouTube creator, occasional Toy Book contributor, and founder of the Family Video Network. Hunter delves into her interest in play as she unpacks the ways that YouTube has changed the way that kids engage with toys. Additionally, Hunter explores the importance of doll play for kids and adults and what parents can learn from playing alongside their kids.
