Toys for Tots Virtual Toybox
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The closure of Toy ‘R’ Us resulted in the an unforeseen consequence. The Toys for Toys donation boxes at the end of each checkout aisle accounted for millions of toy donations to children in need on Christmas morning. Partnering with a local toy distributer we re-introduced the recognizable Toys For Tots donation box, virtually.
I led the design and development of an eCommerce platform that tries to mimic the feeling of allows users to donate toys dragging and dropping into the box.
Rollover for detail view
Unbeknownst to me before this project, the Toys for Tots Foundation works very closely with the United States Marine Corps and this virtual toy box program is meant to improve the process of getting these donated toys to the children that need them.
We pay tribute by animating a marines march, salute, and about face when a toy is added to the box.
