Our Commitment to Giving Back

Our Commitment to Giving Back

At SimplyFun, we believe that all children deserve the opportunity to play regardless of their circumstances. We also know that many families may not have access to games that could help make a difference in family life and in kids’ skill development. Being able to give back to these children and families through our giving programs is at the heart of our core values and mission.

Over the past decade, SimplyFun has donated over half a million games to charities, schools, and other non-profit organizations that support children and communities in need. One of the best gifts you could ever give a child is the freedom to explore their imagination and play. Play has been proven to develop skills in children such as expanded vocabulary, improved literacy skills, social skills, and much more.

Prickly Path by SimplyFun is a strategy and decision making game for ages 8 and up.

Making time for face-to-face play each day is one of the keys to maintaining strong family connections and generating the laughter and joy that comes when we play together. We believe that gameplay can build on inclusivity while introducing concepts of diversity. After all, play is for everyone.

Our Giving Partners

We're proud to partner annually with Toys for Tots and My Stuff Bags Foundation to donate SimplyFun games. For Toys for Tots, we often provide upper-level elementary and teen-oriented games as they have shared with us that while they get a lot of younger age products, they run short of games to distribute for upper age ranges. For My Stuff Bags, we are very conscious of the game box size because these games are included in a duffle bag with many other items (like a handmade quilt/blanket, toiletries bag, and personal item) provided to a child when they are moved into foster care; a game in a small box works best for them. In this way, we try to serve the needs of the organizations as well as the needs of the ultimate beneficiaries.
