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 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.
Happen also now accepts donations through the Amazon Smile program. By clicking the link to the left before making an purchase on Amazon.com a small portion of your purchase price will be given to Happen, Inc. This gift does not increase your purchase price. It's quick and simple and together with other friends of Happen, Inc. can make a real impact in our community. Please spread the word.
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.
At this time Happen's Toy Lab is not accepting new donations of toys and toy parts. We are in the process of preparing new guidelines for accepting toys and will make an announcement on facebook.com/happeninc once the new guidelines are in place.
