Soldier Blogger Chief Wiggles has started up a toy drive for Iraqi children.
From his site:

Some no no toys:
Any guns of any kind
No violent action hereos
No violent toys
No barbie dolls or dolls skantily dressed
No toys that shoot something, no projectiles
No water guns
Lets just keep it simple, simple toys, just the basics, these kids have

Some other items that are nice are pencils, pens, paper to draw and color on.
Toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, brushes, combs, etc.
Nice stuffed animals, other items.
Just use your good judgement, and if you are unsure, contact a local muslim group for help.
Here is the mailing address to send items to:
Chief Wiggles
CPA-C2, Debriefer
APO AE 09335
As the Chief has said, ALL toys will be distributed to the children, unless they are inappropriate.

There are more suggestions in the comments section of the post.
