They‘re back!!! Yay!  The Toy Society has grown, so rapidly, into an inspiring world-wide community since they started with that humble first toy almost five years ago.

With over 3000 members, they have dropped nearly 2000 toys!  The Toy Society is about giving someone something and expecting absolutely nothing in return, which is a real rarity these days.

When a member leaves a toy gift it‘s called a "Toy Drop" and is posted on their blog and assigned a drop number.

Each toy is safely sealed, with a note to the finder, inside a press seal bag - to protect from the elements. The toy is then left to be found with a tag attached inviting the finder to "Take Me Home I‘m Yours".

Drops and finds can be tracked on the blog, either in numerical order as they are posted, or by country tags (see left column) or by themes (also see left column). The blog is maintained by a team of volunteers from around the world.

Membership of The Toy Society is open to anyone, who wants to contribute and believes in the spirit of the project, and is easily attained by completing a brief sign up form on the blog.

Crafters of all levels are welcome to participate - even beginners and kids.

There are loads of inspirational free patterns on the internet to get you crafting up some toy love asap!
