FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Christmas came early for some kids in Fort Wayne Friday when JAKKS Toys came to give them gifts. 

With the help of the JAKKS CEO, the Indiana Pacers, Fort Wayne Mad Ants, and Indiana Fever, kids were able to pick out a toy for Christmas. 

The president of the Boys and Girls Club, Joe Jordan, said he's worked with JAKKS for the last nine years to make sure the kids get the Christmas they deserve. 

"Always exciting to see kids excited about Christmas. We just want to make sure all of the kids we serve are guaranteed a really nice Christmas and this is one of the ways that we do it," Jordan said. 

JAKKS will stop in Terre Haute and Seymour, Indiana this week.
