our Stuff-a-Bus Toy Drive 2023 is on Thursday Nov 30th and Friday Dec 1st at Sobeys on Vaughan Harvey Blvd

🎅 2023 is our 14th annual Stuff-A-Bus Toy Drive.
🎅 Where: Sobeys on Vaughan Harvey Boulevard
🎅 When: it happens from 6a to 6p on Thursday 30 November and Friday 1 December
🎅 More: we take your toy donations, gift cards, and cash donations and we stuff 'em in a Codiac Transpo bus. Then the Salvation Army gets your donation to a kid this Christmas!
🎅You will also be able to tap to donate on-site! Thanks!
⛑ Scotty Note: This year I'm trying to encourage the donation of chainsaws during our Chainsaw Power Hour! Or gift cards. They're also great. Live stream at bit.ly/listentoscottyandtony
From last year...
My nearly scientific calculations are complete: you donated THOUSANDS of dollars and an entire BUS FULL OF TOYS!!! Thank you for making Christmas bright for so many kids this year!!!!

🎅 Bonus Toy Notes:
-- The Most Popular Toys of ALL TIME! (https://cossykids.com/blogs/cossykids-ideas/the-top-ten-best-selling-toys-of-all-time-a-sneak-peek-at-the-most-popular-playthings-of-all-time) ... including Rubik's Cube, Barbie, Lego, Teddy Bear, Tamagotchi, Star Wars Figures, and Yo-Yo!!

-- Toys to avoid donating: 
1) The Gilbert U-238 Atomic Energy Lab... from the 1950's/ contained ACTUAL URANIUM!/ link (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilbert_U-238_Atomic_Energy_Laboratory)
3) Rollerblade Barbie... so much burning!/ link (http://web.mit.edu/hershey/www/humor/dave/dave3.html)
4) Moon Shoes... so bone-breaky/ link (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_shoes)
5) Metal Playground Slides... hot hot hot!/ rusty and sharp!/ gave me lock jaw!/ link (https://nerdist.com/article/40-foot-tall-metal-giant-slide-detroit-hurts-people-video/)
-- if none of the above info appeals to you, perhaps you'd be interested in this suggestion brought to you by Johnson's Steak Knives and the Canadian Steak Knife Colition (*may contain affiliate links*) ... 
If you're not sure about what kind of gift the kids like these days, you can't beat a classic box of steak knives! Or for the younger kids, steak spoons!!
-- Other toy donation ideas from past years include Frisbees (donations can be accepted from across the parking lot... just throw)... Drones (donations can be flown right into the bus and landed on the toy pile)... Avocados (this recommendation has been discontinued)... YoYos or YoYoYos (more modern)... 
-- Want to give a classic toy? Maybe something from the Toy Hall of Fame!!
This year, these toys got voted in: NERF, Fisher-Price Corn Popper, Cabbage Patch Kids, and baseball cards. https://edmonton.citynews.ca/2023/11/10/fans-push-fisher-price-corn-popper-into-toy-hof-with-nerf-cabbage-patch-kids-baseball-cards/. BTW, Ken of Ken and Barbie fame did not get enough votes this year. Sorry, bruh.
