The Toy Society

Have you heard about The Toy Society?  I stumbled across it one day in my web surfing and I think the concept is such a great idea!    It's all about "random acts of craft" and giving gifts anonymously to perfect strangers.  

The project was started in Australia in 2008 by a local crafter named Bianca and has now expanded to include crafters the world over.  People create soft toys of any description, put them in a little ziplock bag with a note saying "Take me home I'm yours", and then leave the little bag somewhere it will be found.  Each drop has a unique number, and sometimes the finders write in to say they have found one of these toys.  

What a great idea!  There are currently over 2500 members and anyone can join.  I think I might give it a go.  I will have to include my note in English and Spanish though!

What a fabulous concept. I do think that I'd be more inclined to want to take the toys somewhere the kids might be more in 'need' of them though. The average child today has far too many already and I wouldn't be any too pleased knowing my hard work was simply drowning in a sea of unappreciation.

Or am I missing the point?
