Hospitals & Child-Friendly Organizations
PlayopolisToys takes great pride in our commitment to the application of toys as a mechanism to enhance child distraction, development and coping skills.
Our extensive cataloging and curating of these specially chosen toys – by age, type, need and sense – facilitates the ability to target specific solutions to your organization’s needs.
In addition to our substantial toy platform, including our Distraction Toys selections, we offer: Complementary Consultations; Wish Lists you create on our website to share with your donors; Granting Wishes Campaigns; and Tailored Workshops.
As a member of the Association of Child Life Professionals (ACLP), I work with child life specialists to provide diversion for hospitalized children. Distraction Toys reduce stress, increase cooperation, and offer much needed fun for children undergoing procedures and coping with illness or injury. Adults find Distraction Toys irresistible too.
PlayopolisToys invites customers to create Wish Lists. These lists can be private, accessible only by invitation, or public.
Hospitals and child-friendly organizations can use Public Wish Lists to provide an easy way to let potential donors know their needs – and for those wanting to fulfill wishes to do so. Find A Wish List makes giving gifts and granting wishes easy.
Parents may choose to create private wish lists to share with family and friends while institutions create public ones accessible to anyone. Family and friends like knowing what appeals to the child for whom they’re shopping, and those buying for a child with special needs feel more confident in their choices.
Granting Wishes Campaigns
Public Wish Lists at PlayopolisToys include ones from hospital-based Child Life Programs and non-profits providing direct services to children with special needs.
For corporations encouraging philanthropy and “Pay it Forward” efforts among employees, PlayopolisToys creates campaigns that allow participants to allocate funds to one or more recipients. All allocated funds go directly to purchasing toys from the Wish Lists.
Another option is to adopt a program. Participants choose one Wish List and focus their efforts on fulfilling those wishes.
Anyone interested in sponsoring a campaign is invited to contact me for more information. 877-579-9300
Workshops for Special Needs
PlayopolisToys offers workshops on selecting and using toys for children with special needs. Insights gained during these hands-on learning experiences lead to better choices, saving programs time and money. Schedule a workshop to explore how these toys invite play and enhance development and make PlayopolisToys your first choice of toys for inclusive play.
For many years, I have been associated with the California Transcribers and Educators of the Blind and Visually Impaired and I’m an active member of the Association of Child Life Professionals. I pride myself on taking time to answer questions and explore which toys might work best for your organization’s needs. Finding that “perfect fit” makes my day.
