Boston, MA — MDS’s “Santa Claw” toy grabber filled with games, stuffed animals, dolls, remote controlled cars, and sports and recreation equipment was sent to the 2018 annual Toys for Tots toy drive. MDS is proud to support Toys for Tots and bring joy to kids in need.

Like the classic claw machine at the arcade, this fully operable toy grabber features lights, hand cranks to control the claw, and a dispenser shoot. A candy cane striped structure with garlands and wreaths make the toy grabber festive for the holiday season.
