A community-owned registered charity operated on a non-profit basis and managed by a committee of volunteers elected annually, the Collingwood Toy Library serves over 580 families in the City of Yarra and the surrounding areas.
Established by a small group of parents in 1992 we now have over 5000 toys, games and puzzles suitable for children from birth to aged 12 and beyond.
Our coordinator Amy has an encyclopaedic knowledge of our collection. If you need help finding a particular toy or need some inspiration, she is the one to ask!
Our running costs - maintaining and replenishing our collection and employing a coordinator - are covered via membership fees, fundraising and grants.
By offering an informal meeting place for local parents with young children in the community, we also aim to foster local friendships and combat social isolation.
