MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – NOVEMBER 20, 2023 KiwiCo, the brand that brings enriching, purposeful play to life with hands-on, kid-tested products and activities, today announced a milestone donation for the brand to Toys for Tots, the Marine Corps organization that distributes toys, games, and books to less fortunate children throughout the holidays. To support Toys for Tots’ ongoing efforts, KiwiCo rolled out a Buy One, Give One program during the peak holiday season, which resulted in more than 20,000 KiwiCo activity and toy crates being donated to children in need.


KiwiCo’s Buy One, Give One program, which ran from November 14-18, donated a crate for every KiwiCo purchase during this timeframe, allowing more children across the United States to unwrap the gift of fun and discovery this holiday season. Every KiwiCo product is thoughtfully designed to deliver enriching and brain-building play that inspires creativity, expands critical thinking, and empowers the next generation.
