EAST AURORA, NY — Fisher-Price unveils a new lineup of “mini-me” and role-play items that turn every day grown-up activities into, well, toys. This collection features a number of actions that kids are seeing the adults in their lives do now more than ever. Highlights include:

  • My Home Office Set – As many parents and caregivers across the country are continuing to work from home (WFH), this preschool role-play set enables kids to do the same. The new toy features a laptop with four fabric “apps,” a smartphone, a headset for calls and, of course, a coffee cup.
  • Baby Biceps™ Gift Set – Parents and caregivers aren’t just working from home these days; they are working out from home as well. Now, babies can take part in the fitness fun with a gym-themed set that pumps up playtime.
  • Cutest Chef™ Gift Set – And, as parents and caregivers are perfecting their home chef skills, babies can also get involved in the “cooking.” The Cutest Chef Gift Set includes a crinkle recipe card, play tongs with a meatball spinner, a chewy oven mitt teether and a wearable chef’s apron bib.

Our designers created these toys based on some of the most popular themes in social media, including #food and #fitness. And, speaking of popular hashtags, we also recently introduced a Tiny Tourist™ Gift Set perfect for family #staycations.

Our new “mini-me” and role-play toys are the latest example of how we are delivering on our promise to create playful connections between children and the grown-ups in their lives. And, there is so much more to come.

At Fisher-Price®, we’ve always been focused on making playtime more fun by infusing surprising and playful elements into our toys. In the infant and preschool categories especially, we have deliberately focused on introducing toys that get parents and caregivers laughing, too.

Redwood Shores, CA — Today Oracle announced that Zoom Video Communications, Inc. is turning to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to support its growth and evolving business needs as the enterprise video communications company continues to innovate and provide an essential service to its extensive customer base.

Zoom PC“We recently experienced the most significant growth our business has ever seen, requiring massive increases in our service capacity.

Yuan. “We chose Oracle Cloud Infrastructure because of its industry-leading security, outstanding performance, and unmatched level of support.”
