Community Partnerships

Moose Toys exists to “Make children happy”! All over the world, Moose has developed partnerships with organisations who share our vision and who work to make a positive difference to the lives of children and their communities.  

The Humour Foundation

AUSTRALIA

The Humour Foundation is an organisation dedicated to promoting and delivering the health benefits of humour so this partnership is a perfect match with Moose.

Clown Doctors work with children who are unwell in hospital in a unique way. They parody the hospital routine in order to make them feel less overwhelmed by medical procedures and throughout their stay. Oversized medical equipment, 'red-nose' transplants, 'cat' scans, humour checks and funny bone examinations are all part of the fun. 

As the Principal and Strategic Partner, Moose’s support of the Clown Doctors in Australia ensures that they are able to deliver more doses of fun and laughter to more sick kids more often.

The Dream Doctors

ISRAEL

The Dream Doctors in Israel work in the majority of hospitals and also have trained clowns who can travel to disaster areas to provide much welcome relief. The support from Moose has enabled Clown training days, increased hospital coverage and importantly, ongoing support for relief in time of disaster.

Healthy Humor

UNITED STATES

Healthy Humor is an arts organization whose professional performers create moments of joy, wonder, laughter and comfort for hospitalized children and all others who are most in need. We hope for a world transformed by humor, joy and the power of human connection – a world less burdened by pain and fear.

Their flagship program, Red Nose Docs, uses the magic of healthcare clowning to help alleviate the stress, fear, sadness and isolation of the hospital environment for young patients and their circle of caregivers.  Red Nose Docs are professional artists from a variety of genres (actors, musicians, magicians, etc.) who are specially-trained to work in the hospital environment. Using an array of circus and theater skills, performers work in teams of two to create spontaneous, joyful encounters, reintroducing play and fun as natural parts of life. They wear minimal makeup and understated costumes while conducting “Clown Rounds” to parody the regimented and sometimes intimidating hospital setting.  

Their work redirects the pain and fear of stressful experiences into moments that live with hope and laughter, leaving behind joyful memories that often eclipse the trauma and aid in building resiliency.
