We ask that all items are checked to ensure they are complete, and in working order – we cannot pass on broken toys or toys missing pieces.

Would you pass it to a friend?
We pride ourselves on passing on items in great condition. It makes all the difference to the family on the receiving end. If you are not sure whether your donation is suitable or not, a good test is to ask yourself if you would give it to the children of a good friend? If the answer is yes, we are happy to receive it. But if you are unsure, phone us to confirm, this saves you a trip to us which possibly ends in rejection on the doorstep.
