TULSA, Oklahoma -

Last week we told you about a toy lending facility in Oklahoma City and thought it would be a great idea for Tulsa; turns out someone had the same thought, just 28 years ago.

Just like books at the library, this place has toys and other resources parents can borrow.

Woody's hat from Toy Story is just one of hundreds of items available to be borrowed from the Child Care Resource Center said Program Director, Karen Smith.

When an item is checked out and returned it is steam cleaned before it can be checked out again.

In addition to toys, the center has literacy kits that come with a hand puppet related story books.

While we were checking out the center, the Ziyad-Bey family came in and 4-year-old Amir and 8-year-old Shuaib ran straight for the toys.

The boys are home schooled and their mom, Shemora Sheikh, likes to work their toy selections into an educational theme for the week.

"Looks like it might be transportation, because it looks like they are into the airplane and the parking lot," Sheikh said.

She'll create math problems and educational field trips around the boys toy selections.

Little sisters don't get left out; 1-year-old Reem got something too.

There is a $25 annual fee, but that entitles parents and care givers to use the facility as often as they need to for their children, or the occasional childish adult.

On the Center's website you can see what they have, what's been checked out and when it will be returned.
