The Little Buddies Toy Library will host a Stay and Play open day at its Point Cook branch on Friday.

The toy library is a non-profit community service based in Werribee and has a range of more than 1700 toys suitable for infants to five-year-olds.

The library gives families of babies and preschoolers affordable access to safe and age-appropriate toys, which can help children learn through play.

The library also has two sets of sensory toys, designed for children with special needs, which were donated by the Point Cook branch of the Country Women’s Association.

The free Stay and Play event will offer interactive play for youngsters, along with an opportunity to meet other families and find out about the toy library. Toy borrowing will be available to library members during the event.

The open day will be held between 11am and 1.30pm inside the Saltwater Reserve Pavilion, at the corner of Saltwater Promenade and Point Cook Road in Point Cook.

Membership to the toy library costs between $55 and $77 a year, plus a duty bond of $50 per year.

The library is run by a volunteer committee, with paid session co-ordinators funded by Wyndham council.
