Wayne, PA (PRWEB) April 18, 2007
Since corporate executives are playing with Toobeez® in their offices on a daily basis, Toobeez International is asking them to share their toys with their daughters and sons in support of the Ms. Foundation for Women's 15th Annual Take Our Daughters And Sons to Work® Day on April 26, 2007.
"Toobeez gives organizations the chance to learn how to interact as a team and motivate each other, while playing and having fun," said Gil Keough, Director of Corporate Training for Toobeez International and Project Connect. "Since girls and boys will be going to work with their parents on April 26th, let them learn the same concepts and have fun at the same time!"
Toobeez, the ultimate giant construction building system, started out as a specialty toy, along the lines of giant Tinker Toys. "Due to the open ended nature of Toobeez, it quickly became so much more than a toy as educators, camp directors, scout leaders and corporate trainers realized how easily they could incorporate Toobeez activities into their existing programs for fun events, ice breaker activities and exciting ways to teach team building skills," said Joseph Donahue, CEO and Founder of Toobeez International. Donahue reached out to industry experts and created a series of activity manuals for use with Toobeez across many areas in addition to team building, including occupational therapy, recreational therapy, Math and Language Arts.
"Daughters and sons can participate in the same activities as their parents or companies can run the fun events for everyone to participate in together," said Keough. "Toobeez is all about connecting people and learning from each other."
Last year, PricewaterhouseCoopers took the Toobeez Challenge and ordered several sets for the daughters and sons who came to work with their parents. The day was set around the firm's values of Leadership, Teamwork and Excellence. "We used Toobeez with one of our teaming exercises. The kids built large squares, pretended they were ships and groups of kids stood in the squares. But, the ship was sinking, shark infested waters, and all had to abandon ship and get into a smaller square without stepping into the water. It was great to see the kids begin to communicate, work out a plan, and lead everyone to safety. The discussion after the exercise was most rewarding and, it was great to see the connection the kids had, their support for each other and how they shared their success as a Team."
