How It Works

How many toys can I borrow?

You can borrow 3 toys for each child plus a puzzle. On days where you are on duty, you can borrow an extra toy.

How long can I borrow the toys for?

Each toy can be borrowed for 3 weeks, but extensions are possible for most toys if your child really loves something.  You just need to renew online.

What commitment is involved?

We ask that you complete at least 1 duty per term which comprises of assisting a toy library committee member or ‘opener’ with lending out toys.  It’s not difficult, it’s a great opportunity to meet people and you can bring your children so they can have fun with the toys while you complete your duty.  It is only 1.5 hours and it’s fun!

Can I get something extra for parties?

Yes! The party pack is a great way to entertain kids – for a party, BBQ, or even just a fun weekend! The pack is available all year round (except over the summer break). It includes:

  • Roller coaster
  • Little Tikes giant slide
  • Egg and spoon race set
  • Sack race set
  • Parachute game with instruction sheet.

Our party pack is available free-of-charge to members. For reservations, place your name on the roster at the Toy Library or online.

How much does it cost?
  • 1 child: $40 per year
  • 2 children: $50 per year
  • 3 or more children: $60 per year
  • Non-Duty option: add $40 per year (if you do not wish to volunteer to be on duty)
  • Grandparents: $30 per year with no requirement for duty (though very welcome and appreciated!)

Note that in 2021, we are offering the first 6 months free to new members!
