How we play! 

With a toy library membership you can borrow toys to play with at home. 

  • choose from over 6,000 toys, games and puzzles

  • one annual fee (about the same price as 1-2 toys alone)

  • up to 3 toys + 2 games/puzzles per child at a time

  • minimise clutter and waste

  • expand your child’s playtime possibilities with more fun and learning

  • two convenient locations

The possibilities for play are endless! And our team can assist you in choosing toys that your child will enjoy. 

Why we play!

We are a community-run organisation that operates to support families to play at home. We understand that play is not just a source of fun and entertainment but an essential aspect of a child's development.

Check out our toy catalogue to see the full range of toys available to borrow.

Much more than toys

While families visit our toy library, the value we provide goes much deeper than their initial excitement.  


Reduce landfill and your carbon footprint by borrowing toys that other children will love long after your child has moved on to the next thing.


Run by the community for the community, visiting us and volunteering is a great way to meet other families, make friends and learn how play helps your child’s development.

Save space

Cut the clutter caused by unused toys and watch how your child’s play expands by constantly rotating fresh toys. 

Save money

For the price of just 1-2 toys, your annual membership gives you access to 5,500 quality toys, games and puzzles and a vast range of play experiences.

Borrow party packs

Our fun-filled party packs make it easier to host a kid’s party. With themed dress-ups, party games, reusable crockery and furniture, our party packs provide everything you need to celebrate.
