Walthamstow Toy Library and Play Centre is a small educational charity based in east London.  We run two play centres in Walthamstow and Leytonstone.  Our mission is to provide a safe and stimulating place for young children and their parents and carers to play, learn and interact.

This Christmas we are fundraising to transform an empty room at our new Walthamstow Toy Library into a multi-sensory play space.  Think 1970s lava lamps and flock wallpaper - only joking!  Imagine lights, colourful projections, textures, sounds and smells to stimulate the senses. Cosy seating for relaxation and calm, and interactive, busy boards on the walls for little hands to explore and learn. 

There are many therapeutic and educational benefits to sensory rooms.  Multi-sensory spaces activate different areas of the brain, building neural pathways more quickly to enhance learning and development .  They provide a fun and safe environment to learn new skills, build confidence and self esteem. Children can be active if they need to let off steam or calm if they have anxiety and need a safe space to just be. For families they provide a great time to play, learn and bond together.   

So our Leytonstone Toy Library doesn't feel left out, we would like to purchase some sensory toys for them too.  These high quality, educational toys can be borrowed by our members and won't cost the Earth financially or environmentally.
