Thank you so much for your interest in donating toys to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital! Toy donations go a long way to brighten the day and put a smile on the faces of our patients. That's why we named our toy donation program "Spread Joy!"

We accept toy donations year-round, especially during the peak holiday season. Please see our donation guidelines below and get in contact with us to schedule a drop-off at Nicklaus Children's Hospital or one of our outpatient centers. Get started by calling us at 305-666-2889 or email us at

Toy Donation Guidelines

  • Due to strict infection control policies, all donated items must be new and unwrapped. No used, or lightly used, toys can be accepted.
  • We do not accept latex balloons, candy/food items, or violent toys.
  • In order to ensure patient safety and abide by patient confidentiality regulations, gifts cannot be delivered directly to patients by the donor(s).
