Begun, this Toy Drive has

Toys for Tots

Michael Williams directs us to One Hand Clapping who directs us to Chief Wiggles. (Ain’t the blogosphere a wonderful thing?) A toy drive for Iraqi kids has started up.

Do not send any of the following:

  • Any toy guns of any kind
  • No violent action heros
  • No violent toys (if in doubt, leave it out!)
  • No Barbie dolls or dolls scantily dressed dolls
  • No toys that shoot something, no projectiles (i.e., no suction-cup dart pistols)
  • No water guns

Keep it simple, just the basics, these kids have nothing.

Also badly needed:

  • pencils, pens, paper to draw and color on.
  • Toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, brushes, combs, etc.
  • Nice stuffed animals, other items.

Just use your good judgment, and if you are unsure, contact a local Muslim group for help.

Here is the mailing address to send items to:
Chief Wiggles
CPA-C2, Debriefer
APO AE 09335

ALL toys will be distributed to the children, unless they are inappropriate. Please folks, spread this around.

This has been popping up all over. I think it’s a great idea. This is a Shock & Awe of the best kind.

UPDATE: Darren Kaplan points out a toy that is ABSOLUTELY unacceptable.
