What we do

Fairy Box is a wonderfully simple idea. We supply boxes of toys for children’s wards, and when a child is feeling overwhelmed or sad while receiving hospital treatment, they can visit the box and choose a gift which is theirs to keep. They can visit the Fairy Box as often as they need.

A visit to the Fairy Box can calm and soothe children during difficult procedures, and helps staff to treat them.

There are Fairy Boxes in hospitals all over Scotland, from the Highlands to the Borders.

  • Being in hospital can get really boring and the nurses always know when you need cheering up because they let you visit the Fairy Box. Then it's not so boring anymore!
