Toy Library

Ideaology

We all have fond memories of playing with toys in our childhood, be it a plastic soldier, remote control car, favourite jigsaw puzzle, or superhero/princess figurine. Children of slum dwellers, street children or kids staying in remote villages often are devoid of this experience altogether. They have to settle for makeshift toys made from tyres, plastic bottle, sticks, rope – whatsoever limited things they have around them.

Education on its own can not foster holistic development in a child, toys play a crucial role as well. They help the child in exploring and making sense of the world around him. They boost the child’s imagination and creativity skills. They allow the child to emotionally relate to others through imaginative play and roleplaying with friends. When children are feeling distressed, they often find comfort in their favourite toys.

Strategy

This is why Lakshyam NGO started the initiative Lakshyam Toy Library – which
aims to bring back the essence and innocence of childhood in lives of the underprivileged children. A safe spacious setting is provided wherein the child has the freedom to explore and engage in imaginative play. Educational Toys, Games, and Books, such as – cars, bikes, soft toys, dolls, are also provided to help the children in their growth and development.

Lakshyam set up its first toy library 10 years ago with thousands of toys collected from various schools across Delhi. We have been able to expand to 17 cities throughout the country. In each city, the donated toys, educational games, and books were put up in a library, free for children to play with. Children can access them whenever and however they want. Teachers often engage the children by reading them storybooks as they flip through the pages – spellbound by the colorful imagery.
