It really is the season for pop-up shops. At the eBay Toy Box Pop-Up Shop, open now through Sunday, December 9, visitors can purchase gifts for every kid on their shopping list, while also giving to those in need. (Actress Jennie Garth stopped by the shop yesterday to help out with opening day festivities.) At the front of the store, a Christmas tree displays ornaments featuring various toys. After downloading the eBay Now app to their phone, visitors can scan the ornament of their choice with their smartphone, and that toy is instantly donated to Toys for Tots, with eBay matching each donation. Using the same technology, parents can also purchase playthings for their own kids—eBay "elves" will hand deliver toys around town within an hour.

The eBay Toy Box Pop-Up Shop is located at 675 Hudson St at 14th St. The space is open through Sunday, December 9.
