Jodi was originally part of the toy library as a member when her daughter was younger and has now joined our wee staff team in August 2022. She is already proving to be a great asset to the team and is having a heap of fun getting to know our lovely members. Her challenge is to also learn about all the 1200 plus toys we have in the toy library and get to know what they do, how they do it and who they are most suited for - it's a challenge she is enthusiastically accepted and is fully committed to playing with each and every toy to achieve her goal.
Couldn’t do this without my Hubby Greg - I’m enormously grateful for his patience in letting the toys sometimes take over his garage and his skill level at keeping the toys in tip-top condition.
My daughters have both grown up around the toy library since they were 4 and 2 years of age. Over the time they have been very enthusiastic toy testers and have both worked part time with me. I have thoroughly enjoyed working alongside them.
I joined the toy library back when my eldest was just 2 years of age and fell in love with the whole idea of it. When it came up for sale at the end of 2006 I didn’t need to think twice about taking it over. So in January 2007, I began one of the best jobs ever!!! I’ve learnt so much and enjoyed growing with it. Even after all this time it still feels brand new and we have lots of ideas we want to put into place. Watch this space.
And not to be left out….our family dog Taz
