TOYS TO DONATE?

 
We accept all donations of both new and used toys.
Please ensure toys are clean, in good working order, have all the pieces included and with batteries supplied, if applicable.
Please pack donations in bags and / or boxes you are happy for us to keep. We may not always have time to sort through all donations on the day that you
donate, and bags and boxes come in very handy when toys are then delivered to and collected by schools, hospitals and other organisations.
Donations can be delivered or sent to our shop.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE TOYS I DONATE?

Some of your toys are sold in our shop for another child to buy and enjoy and some are given to those in need. Your toys may go to initiatives we support such as schools and schools. Requests for toys can be very particular. For example, a school required books authored by Julia Donaldson for a project they were doing in class. Another example is when a centre that supports refugees asked us to supply them with only the curved pieces of Brio train track. We also send many toys to the Caribbean, Africa and India. We have set up a library in Grenada, where we send books four times a year.
