Love the pre-loved: toy swaps & play dates
A great alternative or addition to toy library loaning... Swapping toys with friends - It's space saving, money saving, environment saving, teaches kids about sharing and looking after toys, keeps play time fun, interesting, fresh, challenging, and simply makes sense!
- one toy at a time or a selection/bag;
- short or long term swap/loan;
- play date/visit;
... it's all good!
We've been lucky enough to loan some excellent toys from friends who have slightly older kids, and have occasionally swapped toys with mums' group friends. ... hmmm, might be worth another swap soon:-) With other friends now having babies - we can loan out some 'younger' toys to them!
