You get rebate coupons, too!

Let’s admit it, parents! We really have too many toys at home, and the children forget them after a while. And all these toys are left stored—and most probably, filled with dust.

The SM Store and Toy Kingdom is offering you a solution with their Share A Toy program. At the same time, you and your children act as Santa Claus to those who need those toys the most. Clean your house and make children happy—now, isn’t that a happy Christmas for everyone?

But, of course, we want to give toys that can still be enjoyed by those who will receive them. Here are some mindful tips on how to share toys with care.

1. Teach kids to take good care of their toys.
A gently used toy is sure to be enjoyed and loved by the next child who will own them. Show your kids how to clean and store their toys properly after play. Share stories on how their favorite toys can bring happiness to other kids once they have outgrown them.


2. Clean and sanitize the toys before dropping them off.
Plush toys can be hand-washed or tossed into the washing machine, while surfaces of electronics or battery-run items should be wiped down. Make sure to include all creases when disinfecting hard and plastic toys.


3. Inspect if the toys are in good condition.
For kids to truly enjoy the toys that you will donate, they should still be in good working condition, and all pieces are complete and

4. Pack the toys properly.
Avoid losing parts of the toy by packing them properly in a box or bag. You can also request a bag from the customer representatives of The SM Store and Toy Kingdom.

5. Make sure the toys are age-appropriate.
Donations from the Share A Toy campaign will reach thousands of kids across the country ages three to 12 years old.

Once you’re ready to drop them off, proceed to any The SM Store and the Toy Kingdom branches nationwide until December 30. You can also claim your P100 discount coupon, which you can redeem for a minimum single-receipt purchase worth P1,000, for every toy that you donate. For every toy donation, shoppers will receive a P100 discount coupon. Share A Toy purchases and donations are also valid in-store and Call To Deliver transactions.
