Tatura’s Toy Library is gearing-up for a new year and will re-open on Monday, February 4.
Publicity officer Kristy Thomas said Tatura Toy Library aimed to support families by providing them with regular access to a wide variety of toy.
‘‘Remember that play is how children learn, and a toy library membership gives parents the opportunity to offer their children a wide variety of new and interesting toys without the financial constraints of having to purchase, and then store, when the child becomes bored with them,’’ she said.
Ms Thomas said with the weather being so warm, a visit to the toy library was an excellent way to cool down and have fun with children inside, and there were water play toys outside.
‘‘The huge variety of puzzles, starting with large wooden ones for nimble little hands and extending to more intricate ones for bigger more dextrous fingers, are a great way for children to amuse themselves indoors,’’ she said.
