    Toys just sent to your child because a parent is deployed? Is that what you are trying to ask?

    as a form of support from other kids to say we care. I also noticed that in the poll you said that the toys wouldnt help, in your opinion what would help?

    That's a tough one. I don't think that a toy could fill the void of a parent being deployed. But, the toy might be some what of a distraction for some time.

    hmm...honestly I couldnt decide. If you're trying to decide to send some toys to somone elses kids they could take it one of two ways. on one hand its just another reminder their parent is gone, but on the other hand they might appreciate the thought. Its kinda the same thing as Angel Christmas cards at Christmas time. My MIL put us on the list for them since this is our first deployment, & although I enjoyed receiving them, it was just another reminder that DH was deployed, so it would be bitter sweet really. dont know if this helps though.

    It's a nice and genuine idea...

    but, I agree that it would just be a reminder. Besides, if deployment has any benefits it's extra money. They will probably get spoiled rotten by their deployed parent anyway. What I do think is a good idea though, is to organize some sort of program where children donate gently used toys to charities on in honor of their deployed parent. It gives them one more thing to be proud of.
