The Warehouse in Chch. has a big bin where people can put Christmas gifts for families & kids. This got me thinking about what might be a suitable gift to put in there. Maybe not anything with batteries - once the batteries die the people might not be able to afford more. Dolls might or might not be well received. Books a bit dodgy the child may be a good reader or not.
I am thinking that something like a basketball, football, water gun (type that needs no batteries), twister game, etc. Things that could be enjoyed by all..
