2023 Genius of Play Ambassador Applications Due Friday

Program to Offer New Monthly Virtual Networking Hour for Ambassadors


gop-play-ambassadorMarch 6, 2023 | The deadline for play professionals to apply for The Genius of Play Ambassador program closes this Friday, March 10.

The opportunity is open to all individuals in the toy industry interested in supporting The Genius of Play’s mission to promote the benefits of play for all ages, while growing their professional network and showcasing their leadership as an advocate for play. A new monthly networking hour on Zoom will also bring all current active Ambassadors together to exchange their knowledge and ideas.

Program participants serve as thought leaders within their own professional networks as well as with families, educators, and other communities. Ambassadors put Genius of Play research information and tools into action, advocate for the benefits of play, and share their own passions and knowledge of play and toys with the industry.

The Genius of Play Ambassador program launched in 2021 and is entering its third year. Some of the newest ambassadors to join the roster come from companies including Educational Insights, Learning Express Toys, Imagine That Toys, Storyastic, The Moss-Tucker Group, and WinStart Academy. Active ambassadors share research, facts, expert advice, and other content provided by The Genius of Play monthly, as well as support Genius of Play initiatives, such as the launch of the STEAM Playbook.
