Playing with toys has the ability to bring smiles to the faces of children and adults alike. Donating a toy to Cincinnati Children's is one way to bring cheer to a sick child's day.

Cincinnati Children's needs toys, craft supplies and other items year-round for children from infancy through age 18. Download a list of suggestions for the holiday season and for items that are needed throughout the year in portable document format (.pdf) to get ideas for items to donate to Cincinnati Children's. Gifts of products or excess inventory can usually be used throughout the hospital.

When selecting gifts, please refer to Cincinnati Children's toy and gift safety guidelines. Contact the Department of Development for more information.
