Toy professionals were invited to open their hearts and join The Toy Foundation (TTF) for a fun-filled day of play at Chicago's White Sox Stadium. Nearly 200 foster children attended the Play Your Part Chicago event on July 25. Magformers CEO, Chris Tidwell attended the event to show Magformers support and help kids in need. Magformers also brought some of their new toy lines to be distributed to foster children in the Chicago area.

Volunteers and toy makers gathered to entertain kids in need with games and activities and distribute brand-new playthings to every child in attendance. Volunteers also filled gift bags with toys destined for thousands of additional foster children in the Chicago area.

“Sadly, far too many foster children do not receive the emotional support they need while growing up. However, the toy community has the opportunity to help make a difference in their lives through Play Your Part Chicago,” said Elizabeth Max, TTF’s senior foundation manager. “We are excited to host this meaningful event and look forward to seeing many of our toy industry colleagues next month.”

Magformers was proud to be a sponsor and show continued support to children in need.
