Pre-School Age
Preschool age children love toys that promote imaginative and pretend play such as kitchen toys, tools, plastic baby dolls, etc.  Toys that promote movement and active play such as Hot Wheels, balls, sensory toys, etc. Toys that are age appropriate include popular Disney characters, Fischer Price Little people sets, Peppa Pig toys, Baby Alive and Paw Patrol items.

School age children love to play with Star Wars and Minecraft toys.  STEM toys like the Imaginext or robotics building toys always bring smiles to the kids of St. Jude.  A LOL doll with accessories will brighten up a patient during the holidays. 

Teens and up
Our teen population can sometime be overlooked.  LEGO kits of iconic statues or places provide endless hours of fun.  Many teen patients enjoy art supplies, including Sketchbooks, to help with their down time.  When the weather is nice, flying a drone is always a great activity.  Typical teen items that are popular: ear buds, chargers, sound cancelling headphones, blue tooth speakers.
