The Covid-19 outbreak is continuing and many companies around the world are trying to help. More and more toy companies are also joining the fight.

We already heard about Crazy Aaron’s and MMG Brands’ efforts. The ToyBook is reporting that several other companies are also working to limit the spread and fight the virus.

Among them is Hasbro. They are teaming up with No Kid Hungry and Save the Children to provide meals and toys to kids in need. It’s also running a campaign to promote staying at home and give interesting ideas to do while at home.

LEGO is also running several initiatives to donate funds to families in need. Mattel donates toys and art supplies to charitable organizations. It’s also producing face masks using Barbie and Fisher-Price fabrics. And it’s working on personal protective equipment, too. There’s an online campaign for home-based games.

MGA Entertainment launched Operation: Pac-Man. It’s an effort to gather resources for medial teams. This includes sourcing and donating masks and equipment. There’s also a local production in the LIttle Tikes factory in Ohio and more.

Many other companies are also working to help the fight. Among them are also The OB Factory, Playmobile, Rainbow Loom, R&R Games, VTech and LeapFrog along with ZURU and more.

The Toy Association is also calling on members to use 3D printing to create parts for medical equipment. The whole toy industry is working hard to help the fight against Covid-19. If there’s one good thing to come out of all of this is that hopefully it will bring everyone closer together in the future.
