The Toy BankThe Toy Bank

The Toy Industry Foundation collects millions of toys from toy companies and distributes them to thousands of children’s charities around the globe, with the help of our Toy Bank partner, Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.). Together, we make play possible for families struggling in poverty, foster children, military families, kids undergoing cancer treatments, children with special needs, and many others.

Thank you CRA-Z-ART for being our exclusive 2015 Toy Bank Sponsor!

Special congrats to Cool Girls, Tent 13, the Philadelphia chapter of Variety – The Children’s Charity, and Connecticut Children's Medical Center Foundation, Inc. for being chosen by Mattel, Crazy Aaron’s Putty World, and LEGO as the winning charities to receive grants funding from our Game On! competition this past summer.
