Spread some happiness this season, give a toy

Help the Royal Resorts Foundation and Royal Resorts team members spread some happiness this season. We are joining forces with the Ciudad de la Alegria community center to collect toys and sandals for children in need.

All toys and sandals donated will be given to children living in Mayan villages in the Felipe Carrillo Puerto district during a Los Reyes Magos event on January 6, the day children traditionally receive gifts in Mexico. With your generosity we can bring a smile to their faces.

If you are currently staying at Royal Resorts or will be spending the holidays with us, you can help by giving a toy.

What can you donate?

New toys for children aged 0 to 12 years, such as:

  • Dolls (Barbie-type and baby dolls)
  • Superhero figures
  • Cars
  • Plastic balls
  • Soft toys for tots
  • Tea sets and other kitchen play sets
  • Board games
  • Children’s books (in Spanish)
  • Coloring books, pencils, crayons and paints
  • Craft making sets
  • Candies

Please do not donate battery-operated toys, guns and war games

We are also collecting new sandals for boys and girls.

Toy collection boxes in the resort lobbies

Look for the decorated gift box in the lobby and leave your gifts of toys and sandals there. The final day for giving toys is January 3, 2024.

Where to buy toys

All the big supermarkets and chain stores in Downtown Cancun and Playa del Carmen have even larger toy departments for the season if you are not sure where to buy gifts. If you prefer to contribute to the Toy Drive by donating so that the Foundation can buy toys on your behalf, please contact the Duty Manager at the Front Desk.

If you are not traveling to Cancun this season and would like to help, the Royal Resorts Foundation accepts donations of educational material, new toys and clothing for children and adults in good condition all year round. You can also donate online.
