Toy Testing Program Overview

Please read this guide before applying to be a Toy Tester.

There is no fee – membership, or otherwise - for participating in our toy testing program. There are however, two things to note:

  1. You don't get to keep the toys you test. They are donated to charity at the conclusion of the testing program.

  2. We are unable to ship the toys to you. That means that only Ottawa and Toronto area families can participate in our core testing program (but you can still test with your own toys). Ottawa toys are distributed on an ongoing basis from the Beacon Hill area in east end Ottawa. We are still arranging for a distribution location(s) in Toronto.

If you have any unanswered questions about the program after reading through this guide, please feel free to contact us at
