Have you ever been to a toy swap before or see the selection of reusable nappies now available? Want to know more? Then read on and join us at the Exchange in Erith.
Did you know it is estimated that in the UK the average spend per child on toys is £294 annually!
Want to get a new toy for your child without spending money and helping the environment? Then join us at this friendly community event.
Please bring toys that are in good condition. Please bring a maximum of 3 toys to swap. Only bring toys you are happy to donate and swap for another. The number of items that can be swapped will depend on the amount of toys we get on the day, but everyone will be able to go home with at least one toy.
The event organisers do not take any responsibility for any broken/damaged toys. It is the carers responsibility to ensure they are suitable for the age and ability of the child and are fit for purpose. Further disclaimers see below.
If you have a larger toy that is in need of minor repair work, cleaning or replacement parts then please bring one with you, with prior notice. We will be handing these toys to local charitable organisation ‘Turn around Toys Bexley’. This charitable organisation restores toys to a “ready to play” state and then donates them to services and community groups that benefit children in the London Borough of Bexley.
