The film portrays the opening of a new toy box by the Red Cross. The toys collected from the public are disinfected, repaired and lent to children. They toy box is run by the children themselves: they should learn to maintain order and treat common property carefully. Apart from furthering the development of the children’s personalities (according to the rigid role patterns, girls play with dolls and boys with cars), the toy box is meant to incite a feeling of responsibility. The children should understand «that we all belong to one big family.
