Children Can Make Gifts At Noddy Toy Factory Dec. 8

Dec. 4, 2001

Children and their families can make Christmas presents for people who are in less fortunate circumstances during Noddy Toy Factory, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, at Baylor University's Ollie Mae Moen Discovery Center. The event is free and open to the public.

Appropriate for children of all ages, Noddy Toy Factory allows participants to construct one-of-a-kind gifts, such as Christmas tree ornaments, placemats and holiday cards. The gifts will be donated to area nursing homes and the Salvation Army. In addition to making gifts, participating children can receive a present from KWBU-TV.

"We will furnish the supplies, and all the children need to furnish is creativity," said Jill Barrow, director of the Ollie Mae Moen Discovery Center.

Now in its fourth year, Noddy Toy Factory takes its inspiration "Noddy," a BBC children's series that encouraged imaginative play.

The Discovery Center is located at 220 S. Fourth St. between Franklin Avenue and Mary Street. The entrance to the building and the parking lot are off Third Street. For more information, call 757-0922.
