One for the kids

I was reminded over the weekend about the Banyule Toy Library at 19 Interlaken Street Rosanna (opposite Rosanna Primary and in front of Interlaken Kindergarten).

It's a great idea if you want to rotate toys for your kids on a regular basis (without having to shell out for new toys which your kids may quickly lose interest in) and it's also good for the environment.  The toy library is open Mondays evenings 7 pm  - 8.15 pm and Tuesday mornings 9.45am - 11 am.  Email banyuletoylibrary@gmail.com or call 0450 312 004.  Cost is $50 per family per year or $25 if you have a health care card.  There are also other toy libraries around the place if you check the Toy Libraries Victoria site.

The Heidelberg Symphony Orchestra is also holding a number of educational children's concerts this month at the Performing Arts Centre at Ivanhoe Girls Grammar School.  Performances will be held on Sunday 31 July at 1 pm and 2.30 pm and past performances have included themes from Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Indiana Jones as well as classical music like Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and Peter and the Wolf.  Tickets are $5 and can be purchased online or by phone 9005 1792.
