BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - To honor the work of frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, Tatro: Hand-Built Magnetic Toys, a local toy company, has launched the Hometown Heroes paper play set.

The paper play sets for kids 3 to 12-years-old are free and will be handed out at Mestizo Louisiana Mexican Cuisine, located at 2323 S Acadian Thruway, on Saturday, May 30 from 2 to 4 p.m. at a drive-by pickup tent.

No registration is needed to be able to pickup the Hometown Heroes play set; it’s part of the Tatro Arts and Crafts Pickup Summer Series. Play sets will be available while supplies last.

Hopeville is the name of the city in Hometown Heroes, and it needs frontline workers such as healthcare workers, teachers, delivery workers, and cleaning staff essential to keep the city moving.

The illustrations are inspired by the sidewalk chalk initiatives throughout the U.S. that have brought hope to so many.

For more information on the Hometown Heroes play set or to register and pay in advance for the Tatro Arts and Crafts Summer Series, please go to www.tatrotoy.com/summer.
