As of Wednesday, toy enthusiasts have been testing their knowledge by playing Name that Toy! at BackToBasicsToys.com and help donate up to $20,500 worth of toys to children in need through Toys for Tots. For each correct answer, Back To Basics Toys will donate 10 cents towards new, unwrapped toys to Toys for Tots, which collects and distributes toys to disadvantaged children, giving them the chance to experience the joy of the holiday season. While times are tough this holiday, everyone can help put toys in the hands of less fortunate children just by playing a game.
Trivia questions are fun and easy and you can play until you get tired of answering questions or until you reach the $5 maximum donation limit as I did. I like how there was a counter on the side of the screen that told me the total amount I had earned for Toys for Tots.
If you are worried about getting the answer wrong and missing out on 10 cents for Toys for Tots, don’t worry! There wasn’t pressure to get every answer right because the BackToBasics quiz gives you the opportunity to answer the question again all in the name of earning your 10 cents for Toys for Tots!
Here’s one to get you ready…
