Kids Can Work From Home Too, Thanks to Fisher Price
In the year of working from home, we've all been thinking of the superhero parents now taking on two tasks at once: working and caring for their children. I mean, it must be hard to go on a Zoom call when you have babies crying and kids wanting you to play with them.
Introducing Fisher Price's latest play set. The company, which is headquartered in Western New York, just released toys meant for kids that want to work from home like mommy and daddy.
The eight-piece My Home Office set includes a pretend laptop with four attachable fabric app icons so kids can work on different projects, a wooden smartphone and headset for important business calls, and a to-go cup so kids can sip on their favorite beverage while they're hard at work.
The playset is $24.99 on the Fisher Price website.
Fisher Price is no stranger to the New York community. The toy company is headquartered in East Aurora and participated in the town's annual Toyfest for years. In an article from 1990, The Buffalo News said about 35,000 people showed up for the Toyfest parade, and the rest of the weekend was packed with kid-friendly activites, from a car show on Main Street to a yo-yo demonstration in Hamlin Park.
Fisher Price's East Aurora headquarters are also home to the company's Play Lab, where kids (and their parents) can try out and play with new toys. Plus, they get paid to do it!
