Why not really go green with your toys?
We are a volunteer run toy library where parents, grandparents or caregivers can borrow a large variety of educational toys, games and new play materials on a regular basis, significantly contributing towards the development and education of your children. Quality toys are expensive and children quickly become bored with a toy once its play value has been exhausted. By joining the Toy Library you will be able to meet other parents and have access to a wider range of play experiences for your children. You will be able to increase your children’s interest and offer greater learning opportunities without the expense, clutter and environmental impact of buying more and more toys
With our weekly toy library, we aim to create a supportive community of families with like minds, to create a library of quality toys that many families can share.
