CaringKids TOY BOX
Our Toy Boxes are designed to help kids play, learn and read.
They comprise of new and pre-loved toys, books and educational tools for young carers and special needs siblings and can be ordered via registered charities and welfare organisations who have a signed an MOU CaringKids.
Toy Boxes provide children with the tools to learn through play, books and educational equipment. They provide respite during school holidays periods when most peers are away on holidays or outings.
Toys, books and educational tools are available to kids who are carers that may otherwise be unable to afford to have items that are necessary for their development, or that are available to their peers.
Young carers and special needs siblings can experience an increase in their caring responsibilities during school holidays and for many school holidays can be a lonely and difficult time without the routine and social interaction of school.
Toy Boxes are available for ages 3-5, 6-8, 9-12 and are available in a boy or girl variety. They comprise of brand new and pre-loved but otherwise in excellent condtion toys, books, puzzles, arts and crafts and games. No two boxes are identical.
The availability of a teen box for 13-17 years depends on donations available at the time of the order.
Toy Boxes are packed by volunteers and toy box contents are provided through community and business donations and in partnership with the Dandelion Support Network (Registered Charity).
Toy Boxes are posted directly to kids, with permission from their family.
