Toys & Games - Working

Toys are objects meant for playing; can be made of one material or a composition of many materials.

Consider donating to local families, friends, child care facilities, and organizations. During the holidays, many local organizations redistribute new toys and games.

Small toys gathered over time are fun for piñatas, trick-or-treating, or reading, homework, chore or school carnival prizes - consider swapping with friends.
