On December 23, 2022, Bruce Barker, a Happy Factory volunteer, was able to deliver a box of Happy Factory Toys to children of US military soldiers serving at the US Army base in Wiesbaden Germany. This was a wonderful Christmas surprise for the children who gratefully received them. These children were attending a child development center where pre-kindergarten children are provided day care service. Bruce was there visiting with his daughter and her family. Barker’s daughter and her husband teach military dependent children at the Wiesbaden U.S. Army base.
Many children throughout the world are positively impacted by our wooden toys. We appreciate the many volunteers who help make this possible. Though many costs are covered by generous donations of time and supplies, it still costs about $1 to make each Happy Factory Toy.
