It’s play­time for Toy Li­brary

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

AL­MOST $10,000 in Lot­tery­west fund­ing will help pro­vide new toys for the Wem­b­ley Toy Li­brary.

The grant of $9554 will go to up­dat­ing, re­fresh­ing or re­plac­ing up to 100 toys for par­ents to bor­row.

Li­brary pres­i­dent Tiffany Fox said toys de­signed to get kids ac­tive or help with their phys­i­cal de­vel­op­ment were al­ways pop­u­lar.

“Be­ing able to take home dif­fer­ent toys ev­ery fort­night with­out hav­ing to buy them or store them once your child gets bored of them is a fan­tas­tic re­source for fam­i­lies,” Mrs Fox said. “First and fore­most, the toys have to be fun to play with, but if we can sneak in toys that can also help bol­ster chil­dren’s imag­i­na­tion, co-or­di­na­tion or de­vel­op­ment, then that is even bet­ter.

“At the end of the day it is all about chil­dren hav­ing fun, with­out par­ents need­ing to spend a for­tune on new toys and we are in­cred­i­bly grate­ful to Lot­tery­west.”

The toy li­brary, which is a not-for-profit vol­un­teer run com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tion, will re­open on Jan­uary 30.
