Potential donors to Dr. Bear’s Toy Closet should remember that all toys must be new because of the hospital’s infection-control requirements, Ms. Orzechowski says. The closet can use toys for all age levels, from infant to adolescent. Board games are popular, as are board books, musical books, Play-doh, art and crafts sets, word-find books, and model kits. “Dream gifts” for the closet include digital cameras, video-game systems, DVD players, sewing machines and iPods.

Still, the most popular item is a basic one.

“Uno,” Ms. Orzechowski says, referring to the inexpensive card game. “Hands down, it is the No. 1, across-the-board favorite.”
