Bushfire toy appeal - Care bags

Honeybee Toys Montmorency stores has many customers with young children living in the bushfire effected areas of Kinglake, St Andrews and surrounding areas.

Our hearts go out to all our customers who have lost their homes, and especially those with young families. As a small gesture we would like to offer a Care Bag to all those families whose children have lost their much loved toys in the fires.

We have spoken to many of our toy suppliers today for their help in donating items, and we will post details here as goods arrive. YOU may be able to help too, by donating any of the following:

  • A handmade felt animal or doll from your family
  • By purchasing a toy from Honeybee to put in the bag (all toys sold for this purpose will be at sold at a special discount - we will make NO PROFIT from this venture)
  • A book (on good condition) from your families bookshelf that you don't need anymore

Honeybee Toys will also personally donate a toy to every family in need. A note will be included in the bag to let families know that the items have been donated by local families and businesses.

You can deliver your handmade items or purchase toys at either of our stores:
10 Were St, Montmorency 9434 1003
264 Glenferrie Rd, Malvern 9500 8632

We hope to have our first Care Bags available for pick up from our Montmorency store by Saturday 14th February. We will be contacting local schools and kinders in the effected areas to let them know about the appeal and how they can pick up their bag. If you know of families effected by the fires please spread the word.
