Currently, the major focus is on providing toy industry support to the families suffering amid the Russia-Ukraine War.

On the show, Albritton engages Mastrota and Weiner in a conversation that delves into the overall work of the Foundation, the importance of play, and the developmental benefits of play for kids.
