Spread Christmas cheer and gift a toy to Allsorts

Every day can feel like Christmas at the Allsorts Toy Library! There is a treasure trove of toys and games for disabled children and young people to enjoy. Toys aren’t just about play, they can also improve physical, developmental, and cognitive skills in a fun and safe way. You can find sensory items such as lighting, tactile toys, and weighted blankets too. As well as toys, there is specialist equipment which can help ease some of life’s daily challenges for children with additional needs.

Specialist equipment and some toys can be expensive for families to purchase. Then, there is no guarantee that a child will enjoy or benefit from the things you’ve bought them! That’s where the Toy Library comes in. Families can borrow items on a short or long term loan, helping them decide whether to buy for themselves.
Your donation will help children across Gloucestershire find, borrow and love toys all year round.

“We are members of Allsorts for my eldest daughter, Bella, who has an acquired brain injury due to meningitis and possible Autism Spectrum Condition. Allsorts have been amazing at supporting her and my three other children, Perseus, Cassius, and Beatrix.

We used the Toy Library at first to find sensory items for my daughter to help with anxiety and sensory processing. There is such a great selection of toys to choose from, some which we couldn’t afford, but having them on loan is a great idea – plus they never get bored!

The Allsorts team are brilliant. They get us and our family dynamics and are sympathetic to the things we’re going through. They really do listen and offer great ideas too, which have been so valuable. No judgement, just support. Allsorts really feels like family!”
