Unwanted Toys at Home? Attic Self Storage Launches Toy Collection Service in London for Underprivileged Children

Sep 20 2021
A new charitable initiative has been launched, a weekly toy collection service in London, to encourage families across the capital to donate their unwanted toys to children in need.

With children back to school this month, there will be thousands of pre-loved toys that children may have outgrown during the summer holidays; and with 38 per cent* of children in the capital living in relative poverty, this initiative is encouraging Londoners to dig deep and help old toys find a new home with the children who need them most.

It’s never too early to introduce your child to diversity through playtime

In a world sadly still all too familiar with prejudice based around colour, gender and disability it’s encouraging to know that 98% of those parents asked in a recent survey are fully primed to introduce activities into their children’s lives to promote and encourage equality, diversity and inclusion.

But the survey also revealed that only 26% of the sample knew at what age their child will start to recognise different skin tones.  Leading experts in childhood learning show the age to be as young as six months*, whereas most parents in the survey opted for ages 3-5.  It is also widely accepted that children can start to internalise racial bias from between the ages of 2 and 4*.
