This is why one of my favorite charities, Save The Children, has partnered with one of my favorite stores, Toys“R”Us, for the #PlayWithPurpose campaign. Through this initiative, Toys“R”Us are supporting Save The Children’s early childhood development programs. Toys“R”Us will also be providing “Play packs” containing toys that build key skills and encourage socialization, in addition to informational materials to educate parents on the benefits of engaging with their children during play.
