ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Big green boxes of cheer helped lift the spirits of young patients at St. Louis Children's Hospital Tuesday morning.

Magazines, activity books, room decorations, puzzles, even snacks arrived on what's been dubbed "Cheeriodicals Day" at the hospital.

A Cheeriodical is a special keepsake gift box containing gifts specially tailored to each patient's interests.

The concept is catching on at other hospitals across the country.

Some of the employees from Northwestern Mutual in St. Louis helped deliver all the gifts.
