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!
