A new way to enjoy play
Why use a toy library?
A toy library saves you money, reduces environmental damage, and is lots of fun.
We’re really proud of our Mascot Toy Library, which has over 500 toys for families to choose from.
Interested in becoming a member?
Borrowing and drop off times are:

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?
- To buy your membership, you can settle this with Tania at the Mascot Toy Library when you pick up your toys, or transfer your $30 to (BSB) 062239 (Account Number) 10182171 and mark the payment ‘Toy Library Membership’.
