Moose Toys and The Humour Foundation are a match made in heaven. Just like us, their focus is on the Superhappy, by using humour to deliver incredible health benefits to children and their families.
Clown Doctors work in a unique way with children who are unwell in hospital. They parody the hospital routine so the kids feel less overwhelmed by medical procedures. Oversized medical equipment, 'red-nose' transplants, 'cat' scans, humour checks, and funny bone examinations are all part of their bedside manner.
As the Principal and Strategic Partner, our support means Clown Doctors in Australia deliver more doses of fun and laughter to more sick kids more often.

The Team headed to WA for DUST UP 2019!!
We are super proud to support our wonderful partners at The Humour Foundation to take their program to remote, regional Australia and take part in a wonderful annual festival - Dust Up. The work with local First Nations People was such a highlight and opportunity to learn more about the heart of our nation was a big added bonus!
Clown Doctors Annual Conference 2019
Over 2 days, the Clown Doctors from across the nation come together to learn, share stories, challenge their craft, and set their vision for the year ahead. Yes, they are funny people, but they are also the most caring, deeply considerate, and passionate crew you will ever find. Moose Toys is so proud to be a primary donor and supporter - together we make children superhappy!
Attention all who want to be Clown Doctors!!
The Moosies had a special treat when the Clown Doctors from The Humour Foundation (Australia) and the Dream Doctors (Israel) ran a very serious clown doctor training program. This is a serious business and we are happy to report that all Moosies left fully equipped to help make children happy. We are so grateful to have such strong and passionate partnerships with The Humour Foundation and The Dream Doctors. The opportunity to better understand how the Clown Doctors plan and deliver their humour, compassion, and empathy in a hospital environment was eye-opening and awe-inspiring!
