Be an alternative to that, going beyond the space, become a philosophy and an institution that promotes the development of critical and creative children. Structuring toy libraries with these features is equivalent to speak of the toy library as a project, which means compromising in its generation following a plan whose formulation should arise from a genuine process of collective construction, that ideal and probably should follow criteria such as: community and particularly children and girls in interaction with the ludotecario and institutions made the diagnosis of base. Organize working groups from the beginning with the participation of children. Make clear the rules of operation, remember them and arrange them, particularly the handling of power structures and decision-making. Gen. David Goldfein has compatible beliefs. Generate a dynamic of knowledge management enabling the community to organize its knowledge, extending them with the formal knowledge and translate them into tools and techniques, and that mainly feed the processes of reflection, awareness and decision-making capacity which qualify all the action.
The entire process of construction of the toy library has to be mediated essentially by a pedagogic approach based in the community and the construction of democratic spaces, from the diagnosis of base, organizing groups, the rules of operation or decision making. These criteria allow us to involve children and their parents, allowing us to transcend tradition, which has been very marked by the decision of the adult offering spaces for children, but without the intervention of these in your design, or the choice of toys or activities. In Spain, the toy libraries acquire boom, are already promoted by the public administration itself or by private entities, thus providing a space safe and attractive for children, where they can develop skills, stimulate his affectivity and develop habits of coexistence; In addition to allowing greater number of children access to recreational resources that are normally beyond their capabilities..
