Not sure which toys will stimulate and educate your child? Just in time for the holidays,
the “Ready, Set, Grow!” program at the University of Memphis will host a Toy Safety
Fair on Saturday, Nov. 20, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the Michael D. Rose Theatre.
The fair is free and open to the public. Especially welcome are parents, grandparents,
childcare providers, and anyone who purchases toys and books for children.
Experts will recommend toys for different age groups and discuss which toys are unsafe
or inappropriate for a child’s age or developmental level. Several toy and book vendors
will be on hand to assist in selecting gifts.
“Ready, Set, Grow!” is a program of the U of M’s College of Education that helps childcare
centers provide high quality, nationally recognized services.
