Archie Toy Boxes provide welcome distractions and rewards for young patients and their families at countless NHS healthcare facilities right across the north of Scotland.

Our Toy Boxes are used by Health Play Specialists and Play Leaders, including our very own Archie Play Leader, and other NHS staff members as they care for young patients at the various hospitals and clinics we support.

We support thousands of patients every year and need a steady stream of donations to keep the Archie Toy Boxes topped up. Any donation you can make will be very gratefully received.

Donations must be new, used items. We cannot accept used items due to strict hospital requirements around infection control.

We are very lucky that the following local toy stores are generously supporting us by hosting Archie Toy Donation Stations year round so if you can, please do check them out:

Strachans in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire

Harry’s Department Store in Lerwick, Shetland

Grooves Toys in Kirkwall, Orkney.
