Toy Library

Our Toy Library has over 1000 toys for families with children aged 0-8 years.

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 the borrowing of toys.

For an idea of what we have in our library, see our Flickr album.

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, parties and holidays by reserving toys for up to one month in advance.
  • Prevent ‘toy burnout’. How often have you bought your child an expensive toy only to have them tire of it within days?

We also have Toy Membership Gift Vouchers: the gift that keeps on giving.
