Every child loves new toys but often the novelty wears off quickly.

To help reduce the environmental impact of unloved toys ending up in landfill, Coltman Plaza in Lucas has established a toy and book exchange on the second Wednesday of every month, including free Lucas Kids’ Club.

Families can bring in unloved toys and books and swap them for something new. The exchange program not only helps parents save money, but it’s also good for our environment.

Children will have something new to play and read, which is important in stimulating a child’s imagination.

Coltman Plaza Lucas hoped the program would play a part in curbing waste and helping the environment as well as help build stronger ties within the community and allow parents to connect and build friendships in a similar way to mothers’ groups.
