K’NEX Brands, the only U.S. construction company focused on Building Worlds Kids Love™, donated more than $6,000 worth of building sets to “Toys for the North”. This charity was started for one purpose – to provide children in some of the most remote and poorest areas of northern Canada with toys they may not otherwise get for the holidays.    

“Every child deserves to have a happy and fun-filled holiday season”, said K’NEX President CEO Michael Aratan, “and we are thrilled to be able to help provide even just a little bit of it to these children.”

With the help of K’NEX and other Canadian Toy Association members, the total has reached $80,000 and is continuing to grow. The toys will be wrapped and delivered by Royal Canadian Mounted Police using snowmobiles, sleds, ATVs, and any other means of transportation to reach families in even the most remote areas.
