Donating Toys and Games
Donating toys and games to Oxfam helps fund our vital work fighting poverty worldwide. Find out where to donate toys, what kinds of toys and games you can donate, and what happens to your donations.
Donate toys to your local Oxfam shop
If you're running out of space for outgrown toys, don't throw them away! Your unwanted toys or toy collection can be resold to help raise funds. Funds that support children and families to grow the future all over the world. You can help to reduce waste. And leave a cleaner environment for younger generations. You can use our shop finder to find your closest Oxfam shop.

How can I donate my children's toys?
What types of toys can we not accept?
We can't accept dirty or broken toys or toys with sharp edges. We ask that you wash soft toys in particular before donation, unless they're brand new. We also can't accept incomplete toys, like sets of board games or puzzles with missing pieces. These can't be resold.
