What sort of items are they looking for? Oriental Trading Company (www.orientaltrading.com) has TONS and TONS of stuff for kids--craft projects for every occaision, bulk craft stuff, etc. I think they're prices are really reasonable and they are always having free shipping specials.

Another site is USToys. I used it for Halloween things rather than handing out candy. Great prices on yoyos, bubbles, rings and other small toys in bulk. Quick delivery as well.

Just be careful what you order from Oriental. Last year I ordered a bunch of misc. toys for giving out at Halloween (instead of candy) and I was NOT happy with the quality of the items. The toys were poorly made and came apart easily. Some had small breakable pieces and we had to be careful not to hand them out to small children.

I would not do this again.

This year we are giving out stickers from Oriental.
