The Smith Family Toy & Book Appeal

Sadly, thousands of Aussie kids will go without receiving a gift this holiday season simply because their families can't afford it. 


This year we're hoping to deliver a big pile of books to The Smith Family, so come along to the Christmas dinner and bring a new children's book - of any value - for The Smith Family's Toy and Book Appeal, and help bring a smile to a disadvantaged child's face this Christmas. With your help, The Smith Family aims to deliver over 43,500 new toys and 29,000 new books to children in need around Australia.


Books must be new and for babies and children up to 12 years old; currently there is a shortage of gifts for children? 9-12 years of age. Books must not be wrapped. Recommendations for different ages are:

  • 0-1 years: Soft material bath books
  • 2-3 years: Golden books
  • 4-5 years: Activity and colouring books; young reader books
  • 6-8 years: Educational books
  • 9-12 years: Children's novels

Thank you for your help this holiday season.
