Our Social Mission
Did you know that through the sale of our kits, Open the Joy supports the social mission of spreading joy to hospitalized children? We have partnered with the Spread The Joy Foundation to help them deliver Joy Boxes just like our kits to hospitalized kids all around the country. In 2019 alone we managed to help distribute over 2,000 boxes to over 15 different hospitals! That's a lot of happy kids!
Thank you for supporting us on our mission to bring kids joy!
When you purchase from Open the Joy you become a real life hero. Not only are you spreading joy to the child you have purchased the item for, but you are also helping us spread joy to hospitalized children all across the country!
My daughter is obsessed with unicorns. Everything she owns is unicorn themed so when I saw this I knew I had to have it for her. When she noticed that the unicorn had a stethoscope she was thrilled to have a professional doctor stuffed animal. Whenever her brother or her friends fall she tells them to sit tight and wait for the doctor to see you. The cards have also been a great gateway to talking to my kids about the importance of mental health and self care. Every time my kids and the neighbors have a conflict (like over who gets to choose what game they are playing) they all sit in a circle with "the doctor" and discuss their feelings and then go through a couple of the conversation cards. They have solved more arguments on their own than I thought possible! Their emotional intelligence is definitely improving and I think toys like these and discussions about mental health should be a staple in every household!
The cards are a great help for us parents who sometimes don't know what to talk to our children about after a long and hectic day of work. Really worth buying.
My bundle of joy is learning a lot from the talking cards as there is so much to think about and discuss.
My 4 year old has the unicorn by his bedside. His new favorite in his big collection of stuffed toys.
Nice durable cards with great bright colors, meaningful content and very entertaining at the same time.
