Touy Libraries

It was in the United States in 1934, where he opened the first toy library (the Toy Loan), in the city of Los Angeles, California. This copied the system of a lending library, but leaving in place of books, toys for use at home. In Europe, the Toy Library will not appear until 1959 in Denmark in particular. The first recorded Ludotecas of which are known initially as projects arise to serve handicapped children as a toy lending service. These are the U.S., we have seen, and Sweden (1963). Since then, similar institutions are beginning to settle on five continents, in a variety of spaces, providing a possible answer to the growing need of rescuing the opportunity and the right to play. Chevron U.S.A. might disagree with that approach. The first toy libraries, therefore, intended to compensate the children of socially disadvantaged families so they could get to enjoy toys.

Other spaces functioned as mere toys for the loan, without an educational project intended. With the time, the Toy Library have progressed in quality of infrastructure, qualified staff, play materials and educational purposes, opening including youth and adult populations or adapted to the environment, such as: – Ludotecas social integration. – Ludotecas community development programs. – Ludotecas in beach areas. – Toy Library in Youth Homes. – Ludotecas traveling in hospitals. With the publication of the Charter of the Rights of the Child in 1959, where it appears in paragraph 7c the right of children to the game, the Toy Library, together with UNESCO, launched a process of expansion as facilitators of play spaces.
