We were happy to donate $229,000 in toys to the children of BGCA.
While we here at Laser Pegs love to create inspiring, engaging toys to entertain children all around the world, it has also always been an important goal of ours to create toys that are just as educational and stimulating as they are fun! After all, educational toys not only keep your kids inspired and engaged, but they also promote development, teach problem solving skills and prepare your child for elementary learning.
Therefore, it is only fair that every child across America have the opportunity to play with these kinds of educational toys to further their own development and also arouse their imaginations!
It was with this idea in mind that this summer, Laser Pegs decided to donate 500 Laser Pegs Play Tables―that’s a value of over$229,000 in toys―to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America (BGCA). This amazing organization has always held a special place in our hearts and we are thrilled to be able to light up this organization with our creation.
“Thanks to the generosity of Laser Pegs, our kids will have a new and innovative opportunity to enhance their education and creativity,” said Jim Clark, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “At BGCA, we are dedicated to building great futures for our youth. These kinds of ‘fun with a purpose’ activities are key to our work, and we are grateful for this wonderful support.”
The Laser Pegs Light Tables will be used in the Club game rooms of BGCA organizations across the nation as a way to promote creativity, teamwork and innovation. These Play Tables feature a surface grid with 150 holes that children can plug their Laser Pegs into in order to begin building their own unique creations. These holes function as a base and a power source for individual Laser Pegs pieces, so that they light up when they are connected together, providing hours of fun for boys and girls.
“I am honored to be able to enrich the amazing opportunities Boys & Girls Clubs create for children across the country by providing their locations with Laser Pegs,” said CEO Jon Capriola. “Children love playing with Laser Pegs because they can transform imagination into reality while building, and they can watch as their creation comes to life with light. The Play Table is perfect for a community play environment like those found at Boys & Girls Clubs because multiple children can use the table to build at the same time and they can learn while interacting with each other and Laser Pegs.”
Thank you to the Boys and Girls Clubs for providing kids across the country with such an amazing organization to learn and grow in! We are thankful that our toys will be a part of their childhood and will be used to help grow their imagination!
