What Toy Libraries Do:

In addition to answering critical needs facing families today, toy libraries:

  • Offer an important dimension to America's educational program by providing another environment of abundant play opportunity supplemented by a collection of high-grade toys; and a forum for discussion among parents, teachers and others
  • Provide disabled children with quality, specially-adapted toys
  • Provide trained personnel to work with families to integrate disabled children into the mainstream
  • Respond to child care needs
  • Offer caregivers valuable direction in child development
  • Help parents to play with and provide play experiences for their children while becoming more informed consumers of toys
  • Affirm values of honesty and sharing among children in all walks of life
