aussie toys in store at belgrave south

It was great to visit the Belgrave South Toy Library to see the toys purchased with a grant from my Community Ward Fund.

Belgrave South Toy Library fans join Cr Samantha
Dunn and toy library president Jill Ilyes with the
new Australian toys.
Toy Library President, Jill Ilyes, is keen to re-energise the library and highlight it to families in the region. When Jill joined the library she noted that there were no Australian animal toys and no Indigenous toys either.

I was very pleased to be able to assist. It was great to see the children playing with Tasmanian Devils, Snakes, Quokkas, playing the digeridoo as well as having a great time with a family of Indigenous puppets.

Toy Libraries are a great service for families. For a small joining fee, families have access to a broad range of quality toys and educational equipment.

Not only a more sustainable way to keep your children in toys the Toy Library  can supply toys that may otherwise be beyond the means of many families. If you'd like to find out more about the Belgrave South Toy Library visit their website here
