Every toy created at Happen's Toy Lab was made from pieces and parts of old and broken, plastic or rubber toys donated by the community. We accept large and small toy donations during our open hours on Saturday and Sundays. We keep track of all of our toy donations by weight and when one of our donors gives a total of 25 pounds of toys they receive a gift certificate for a free Toy Lab t-shirt. Because our toy building activity cannot make use of wooden or fabric toys we ask that you restrict your donations to plastic and rubber toys and toy parts. 

Happen's Toy Lab has begun to accept toy donations again with the following requirements. 

• You must schedule your donation visit in advance. 

• Donations can be dropped off at the Toy Lab between 10am &         2pm, Monday through Friday, only at your reserved time.

• Donations must be made in a closed container of some kind           (Sealed box, Heavy plastic bag, etc.), containers cannot be             returned. 

• You can leave your donation at the entrance to Toy Lab during          your scheduled donation time. 

Please Email Happen's Toy Lab Staff at to schedule your donation visit.


Happen's Toy Lab is an outreach program of Happen, Inc. a Cincinnati based 501c3 non-profit organization. Donations made using the 'Donate' link to the left help support Happen's mission to bring families together through shared creative experiences. We also offer the option of supporting Happen as a monthly contributor. Small, regular donations combine to simplify Happen's fundraising efforts so we can focus on providing the most happening activities. Thanks. 


Additionally, Happen also participates in the Kroger Community Rewards program. Just follow the link to the left and register your Kroger Plus Card with the community rewards program. When prompted enter Happen's ID number, 45809, and a portion of all future Kroger purchases using your plus card will go to Happen at no additional cost to you. We hope you choose to take part in one or both of these programs, with the help of the community these small donations can really make a difference for Happen.
