Difference and Diversity: Play set and Materials for Educators
You can purchase the Difference and Diversity play set by itself if you just want the toys, or you can purchase just the supporting materials. If you would like both the toys and the supporting materials then purchase them as a bundle and save!

Clover the baby bee
Breeze the butterfly
Laverne the lavender plant
a hexagon shaped play mat which can also be used as a carry case
