SWAN View Toy Library is offering the community the opportunity to come and trial the service for just $1.

Committee member Claire Girdlestone said the volunteer-run service was a wonderful resource for families.

“Buying toys is not only a costly process but often fraught with the danger of kids losing interest within weeks or even days,” she said.

“The Swan View Toy Library allows members to borrow toys for a few days or a few weeks before swapping them.

“We have more than 1000 toys that are targeted at children between the ages of six months to eight years.

“All the toys are categorised into easy to understand areas based on age, stage. type and learning.”

Mrs Girdlestone said a Telstra Kids Grant allowed the service to purchase more coding toys to keep up with technology and provide more variety for older members.

For further information you can find the library on Facebook – “Swan View Toy library”.

The toy library is at Brown Park Community Centre and is open Tuesdays and Saturdays 9.30am to 11am.
