Have you considered joining a toy library?
Did you know our Toy Library has over 1000 toys available for families with children aged 0-8 years?
There are so many benefits to using a toy library, from cost savings through to the variety and fun you can offer your child.
If you live in a smaller property, you’re also saving on storage space.
The library is available to everyone, regardless of where you live in Sydney, and is open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 10am and 4pm, for toy-borrowing.
We also have a mobile toy library which goes to all our playgroups.
Toys can also be returned on Tuesday and Thursday between 10am and 4pm.
Join our toy library today for just $30 a year.
- Access a large variety of toys that are frequently updated.
- Save money – the Toy Library’s Annual Membership Fee of $30 is less than the cost of one toy.
- Borrow toys instead of buying them. If it’s not a hit with your child you can swap it for something else.
- Borrow up to four toys every fortnight.
- Swap toys for something different each fortnight and save on storage space.
- Plan for your play dates, birthday parties and holidays by borrowing up to 20 toys for up to one month in advance.
- Prevent ‘toy burnout’. How often have you bought your child an expensive toy only for them to grow bored with it within days?
We also have Toy Membership Gift Vouchers: the gift that keeps on giving.
