When you donate toys to needy or sick
children, you provide inspiration and a
glimmer of hope.
Without sufficient toys and books,
children don’t develop necessary motor
skills, says the National Institute for Early
Education Research. Studies also show
that infant toys are critical for brain
growth that affects learning later in life.
Because play is essential for children to
lead happy, healthy, and productive
lives, all children need at least simple
toys like balls, blocks, costumes, and
Older children without toys are more
likely to be involved in fighting or other
negative behaviors. On the other hand,
when a neglected child receives a game
or toy donation, he can develop
necessary social skills, such as sharing.
