Amazon Seller Brown Toy Box Surprises Humphries Elementary Students with free STEAM Kits for the Holidays

Amazon and Amazon seller, Black Business Accelerator participant and Oprah’s Favorite Things featured company, Brown Toy Box surprised nearly 300 students with STEAM kits for the holidays during a special assembly at Atlanta Public Schools’ Humphries Elementary School Dec. 7. STEAM education is an integrated approach to learning that combines science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. With the help of Brown Toy Box character “Oscar” the Marine Biologist and Mrs. Clause, Amazon employee volunteers distributed Brown Toy Box STEAM kits containing puzzles, coding, journals, memory games, window clings, activity books, paint kit, art stickers, coloring pages. Additionally, the Amazon Prime Video holiday movie Candy Cane Lane Traveling Truck stopped by Humphries Elementary to distribute hot chocolate and other treats to students and staff.

Launched in 2017 as a STEAM kit, Brown Toy Box evolved into a full-scale educational toy company producing and curating STEAM toys, media, and experiences for centering and celebrating Black children in a manner all children can enjoy, learn, and have fun. “As we enter this holiday season, we are delighted to collaborate with our esteemed partner, Amazon, to spread joy and create lasting memories,” said Brown Toy Box CEO Terri-Nichelle Bradley. “Our mission to prioritize joyful moments and meaningful experiences stands as a testament to our passion for enriching the lives of children everywhere.”

Amazon’s collaboration with Brown Toy Box is another example of how the company is not only a good neighbor in communities where employees live and work, but is also committed to delivering smiles during the holidays. “In this season of giving, Amazon is proud to spread joy during the holidays to local students through STEAM education and philanthropy,” said Amazon Head of Community Affairs – Atlanta Region Terreta Rodgers.

Humphries Elementary School Principal Jaron Trimble said the school was recently designated a STEM school by Cognia and the staff is continuously building their STEM program. “Our goal for the next two years is to make sure that STEM plays a part throughout the school day and not just during science and math, so these kits will enable us to do that,” said Trimble. “Not only will our students experience STEM during their time here, but also it’s something they can take home.

Trimble added “This was an amazing day in the life of a Humphries student. We are very appreciative for the Brown Toy Box for selecting Humphries and Amazon for their generosity and really taking the time to come share with our children. I’m sure this a day they will never forget.”
