The Pudsey Toy Swap was first launched ahead of Christmas 2022 by Hayley Taylor and Trish Smith with the help of the MyPudsey.co.uk website and its team of volunteers. The Toy Swap was set up with the aim of helping ease the costs of Christmas for families. As most parents will attest, we spend hundreds of pounds on toys for our little ones just for them to lose interest within a year. This is where the Toy Swap concept comes in... You can bring a toy, book or game that your child has lost interest in, and swap it for something new to you. We also take donations ahead of the event, and offer the opportunity for people to make donations which we hand to local good causes.
