First and foremost - Used items. Please remember that we gift new items only; helping children to maintain their dignity and self-respect.

Other items we are unable to gift:
- Fragile items like glass, porcelain or china
- Liquids such as bath products, bubbles and snow globes.
- Food, including candy canes and chocolates (with the exception of Easy Bake Oven Packets)
- Realistic weapons and battle toys with soldiers, tanks or guns
- Poor quality plush animals (check for loose threads and eyeballs and open seams)
- Items for adults and teens. We provide gifts for children from infant to 12 years of age.
- Clothing. We do not have access to each child’s size.
