Rob Reiner's no elf on the shelf -- or even Christian -- but he still whipped up some Christmas magic for hundreds of kids on L.A.'s skid row.
Reiner volunteered at the Para Los Ninos Family Center on Wednesday ... sorting and boxing up thousands of toys for needy children.
The gifts were donated by Jakks Pacific -- makers of Cabbage Patch Kids and Hello Kitty -- and will go to more than 1300 kids.
"You want [Rob] on that [toy] wall. You need [Rob] on that [toy] wall." (Yeah, he directed that.)
Santa's little helper.

Domestic Violence Charges DROPPED
12/11/2013 2:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
George Zimmerman's just won a big round in the "She-loves-me-she-loves-me-not" game -- his ex-girlfriend wants him back so badly, she's recanted her claim of domestic violence and the case has been dropped.
Zimmerman was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and battery ... after GF Samantha Schiebe claimed he pulled a shotgun on her and pushed her out of their house.
But Samantha has had a change of heart ... she wants George back, and the State Attorney for Seminole County says Samantha now says she lied about the encounter and refuses to cooperate ... hence, there's no way to successfully prosecute him.
But there's still something blocking these lovebirds from reuniting -- a restraining order, which Samantha's lawyer is now trying to get lifted.
Bottom line ... because she's fickle, George is out of a pickle.
Jail Was a Nightmare
I Wouldn't Wish It On My Worst Enemy
12/11/2013 1:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Toya Wright says her stint in jail was one of the worst experiences of her entire life ... claiming she's emotionally scarred ... even though she spent less than 24 hours behind bars.
As we previously reported, Wright -- Lil Wayne's ex-wfe/baby mama -- was locked up in Georgia yesterday after cops discovered a warrant out for her arrest during a routine traffic stop.
Toya tells us the whole thing stemmed from a speeding ticket that "slipped through the cracks."
But Toya, who appeared on the reality show "Tiny and Toya" -- is adamant she will never go back to jail because she's so traumatized by the things she saw on the inside.
Toya wouldn't get into specifics ... but says her fellow inmates were treated "inhumanely."
"I wouldn't wish jail time for my worst enemy," Toya says ... adding, "What I witnessed was so bad that I don't even want to leave the house right now."
Toya says she's even considering turning the experience into a positive by working as an "advocate of better treatment for prisoners."
As for the speeding ticket, Toya says, "Please believe I'm working on lightening up my lead foot."

Beyonce's father is hitting back against accusations he's a deadbeat dad ... he claims he paid what he owes in child support ... it's just a paperwork screw up.
TMZ broke the story ... Mathew Knowles' baby mama Alexsandra Wright says he's behind on 2 months ... to the tune of $24K.
According to sources familiar with the situation, a few of the payments were only slightly late, but past the deadline for being credited, so it appeared Mathew didn't fork over what he owed.
Here's the problem... Mathew is now behind for December -- payment was due on the 1st. We're told he plans to pay up before it officially becomes delinquent.
Think of it as paying your rent, only with a kid.
We've reached out to Wright but haven't heard back.

Lil Wayne's Baby Mama ARRESTED
12/11/2013 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lil Wayne's baby mama/ex-wife Toya Wright was arrested Tuesday in Georgia ... TMZ has learned.
The details surrounding the arrest are sketchy at best -- with one law enforcement official telling us Wright was pulled over in College Park, GA yesterday ... and during the stop, the cop noticed a warrant out for her arrest.
We're told ... the warrant was issued after Wright failed to appear at a recent court date -- though it's unclear why she was supposed to be in court to begin with.
Toya was hauled to a nearby station, where she was booked and posed for an "Are you frickin' serious?" mug shot.
Toya, who starred in the reality show "Tiny and Toya," was eventually released from jail Wednesday morning at 1:30 AM on a $290 bond.
The story was first published by MediaTakeOut.
Family Believes Road Bumps Sealed His Fate
12/11/2013 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Paul Walker died after the speeding Porsche in which he was riding hydroplaned on reflective plastic markers in the street ... at least that's what his family and accident reconstruction experts believe.
Sources close to Paul's family tell TMZ ... the family has been in touch with stunt experts who have gone to the crash site and come back with what they believe is a solid theory -- a speeding car that hits the plastic markers -- called Botts' Dots -- will hydroplane, causing the driver to lose control.
We've learned the experts have told the family ... a car going speeds approaching 90 MPH will lose traction after hitting a series of Botts' Dots. It's akin to driving on ice -- and control is further compromised by the fact that the Porsche was outfitted with special racing tires that have very little tread.
And there's this ... Porsche sent out a memo to dealers back in 2004, warning about control problems with the Carrera GT, saying, "This vehicle cannot drive over a Foster Beer can that is lying on its side. It will crush the can and damage the carbon fiber under panels," adding, "You need to be aware of what type of road surface you are on (dips, pot holes, seam heights, etc.)."
Law enforcement sources say they have not concluded the exact cause of the accident, but it appears they're looking at the Botts' Dots ... as a viable theory for triggering the fatal crash.

'Roseanne' TV Daughter
Attempts Nirvana Karaoke
Smells Like...Something Bad
12/11/2013 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The actress who played one of Roseanne's daughters on TV would never make it on "The Voice" ... but we gotta give her props for her ballsy performance at a Brooklyn karaoke joint.
Sources tell us Lecy Goranson took to the stage just before closing time last Thursday .. when the place was almost empty. She let loose ... with an ear-splitting rendition of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit."
Only problem was ... it kinda stunk.
Lecy was one of two actresses who played Roseanne's daughter Becky on the TV series, "Roseanne" (the other was Sarah Chalke).
At least she sings better than Roseanne.
