NATIONAL NETWORK OF PLAY THECIES OF PERU

Presentation

 

The toy libraries, in the different countries and contexts in which we support them, belong to the boys and girls who play in them. The spaces may have other owners (community houses, educational institutions, municipal, parks, sandbanks, etc.) but the toy libraries belong to those who play in them. Without children there are no toy libraries. The objective of these networks is to defend the right to play, to recover free spaces that allow them to run, jump, draw, dance, … in the end, make friends and, with this, build and regenerate a social fabric that is especially lacking in a world dominated by by individualism and technology.

These toy library networks began in Piura more than a dozen years ago and later spread to Ayacucho, Loreto and Lima. The formal presentation of this National Network of toy libraries in Peru took place in September 2018 at the Norbert Wiener University of Lima, chaired by the academic vice-chancellor, Dr. Carmen Blázquez, the director of the EAP of Psychology, Dr. David Jáuregui and the president of the Association of Psychologists of Peru, José Cáceres Alvarado- The inaugural conference was given by the president of the Foundation Education and Development, Dr. José Luis Linaza, who pointed out that “… las ludotecas permiten que los niños puedan ejercer su derecho a jugar, esa necesidad que todos los seres humanos tenemos, que es el juego.

Porque jugando se desarrollan habilidades motrices, mejora el lenguaje y la comunicación, desarrollan el pensamiento estratégico e incrementan sus capacidades de socialización, Se hacen amigos jugando junto y tener amigos es importante en todas las etapas de la vida, también en la infancia”,

He also stated that "we live in a society in which technology is a fundamental part, the revolution of new technologies is deeper than the industrial revolution and, therefore, is changing our lives.

And of course, boys and girls are also sensitive to these new technologies, and my experience is that when they have the opportunity to run, play and jump with others, they forget; at that time they do not need cell phones or tablets or anything”.

In all the time that the foundation works in Piura, it has managed to get 130 Spanish students who follow their courses at the Autonomous University to carry out internships in Peru, for 3 months, a period that the university recognizes with 21 academic credits. With them, it has promoted the implementation of toy libraries, through donations of toys, adaptation of spaces and even the displacement of mobile toy libraries to remote communities.
