Empathy for Professional Development
Not just in schools – toys are being used in the workplace!
“We used the Empathy Toy to hone our communication skills, learning how to use universal and simple language to provide instructions. And we used it to get a good laugh as our own team -- designers from every conceviable area of expertise -- learned to talk to each other.”
“Twenty-one Toys made team building both fun and insightful. The combination of the different exercises and the need to focus on specific ways of communicating was invaluable to our team at the Alzheimer Society of Toronto. I look forward to seeing how the learning translates into our work. I would recommend the workshop to all!”

The Empathy Toy's History
It all started as a student project with a very specific assignment: design a navigational aid for the blind. Address the key questions of, "Where am I? Where am I going? How do I get there?" ...and how a visually impaired person might get others to help them answer them.
