Richard and Chris talk with certified Emotional Intelligence (EI) trainer Renée Adams about the importance of EI, how it contributes to child development, and what toy makers should know about building this learning into their toys. Adams talks about her newly launched line Hoppy & Poppie Pinkcheeks and how it helps children develop EI from the youngest ages. It’s an important topic, particularly as we come out of the pandemic, and one which Adams says has many benefits for kids both socially and intellectually.
In The Endcap, Chris and Richard continue the conversation about supply chain issues, particularly the recent boom in container and shipping costs. What does it mean for 2021 and 2022, and are there longer term implications? (36 minutes)
