This weekend, we bring you another initiative that Hasbro is taking part in alongside Toys for Tots (as covered here), this time in partnership with ToyBox Tools - a resource created with and by The Autism Project to increase accessibility to toys and playing in general to children with developmental disabilities. Hasbro has joined with the project by contributing in both Transformers: The Last Knight and Transformers: Rescue Bots categories, and the simplified toys that the two lines contain.

Hasbro’s ToyBox Tools Features New Resources Based on Beloved Brands, including MY LITTLE PONY, TRANSFORMERS and BABY ALIVE

ToyBox Tools Initiative Helps Bring the Joy of Play to Children with Developmental Disabilities

PAWTUCKET, R.I.- Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), announced today a refresh of its ToyBox Tools website, which was created in collaboration with The Autism Project to help make play more accessible to children with developmental disabilities. ToyBox Tools is a collection of resources for parents, teachers and caregivers to help them engage children in the joy of play.

Through the ToyBox Tools website, www.ToyBoxTools.com, visitors can browse the tools online, and then download and print them for use at home or in the classroom. Resources include:

Playbooks with step-by-step instructions on how to play with select Hasbro toys and games
Wait cards to teach children the skill of waiting while others are taking a turn
Countdown timers to help support the passage of time and number of turns
Playmats that serve as a fun and useful backdrop for play

The resources feature a variety of beloved Hasbro brands, including MY LITTLE PONY, TRANSFORMERS, PLAYSKOOL, BABY ALIVE and HASBRO GAMING. The tools were developed in collaboration with The Autism Project, who has a long-standing philanthropic relationship with the Hasbro Children’s Fund. They were designed to help children with a range of developmental challenges enjoy playtime in a way that’s fun and comfortable, at their own pace. They can be used with any child who needs support.

“We’re thrilled that Hasbro realized that for many children, play doesn’t come naturally, and initiated this solution that’s helping so many families,” said Joanne Quinn, Executive Director of The Autism Project. “This program is spreading the joy of play to all children, and in doing so, helping to foster connections with peers, siblings and other generations that may otherwise have been lost.”

“To fulfill our mission of creating the world’s best play experiences, we need to make play accessible to all children of all abilities,” said Samantha Lomow, Senior Vice President, Hasbro Brands. “I’m proud that ToyBox Tools started as a grassroots project from some of our employees who saw an opportunity to offer a solution to a problem that many families face. Their passion and creativity speak to the values we hold as an organization, and I’m delighted that we’ve expanded the program in collaboration with The Autism Project to offer new resources for families, and use our brands for good.”
