Play From Hospital Shipments

“These items help our medical team in distracting patients while procedures are taking place, assist in comforting and calming children once a procedure is complete, or simply help to pass the time during their stay. They help us improve the patient experience and contribute to a family friendly environment at what is often a stressful time.” – Kari, Executive Director at Brant Community Healthcare System Foundation

During COVID-19, hospital visits are more difficult on kids and teens than ever. With limited visitors allowed, time in-hospital is often spent scared and alone. As many hospitalized children are immunocompromised, they are at the highest risk of infection and their lives are dependent on isolation.

In a time where parents feel helpless and children feel lonely, Play From Hospital Shipments provide comfort and smiles to both parent and child!

Happiness shipped safely to hospitals, these super-sized shipments include toys, arts and crafts, Lego sets, board games, and countless other fun activities designed to encourage play to isolated children during their hospital stay. Carefully sanitized and given to paediatric patients by hospital staff, each kid or teen will receive a perfect pick-me-up of their own to avoid the fear of infection and find time for play.
