Toy Library

Children learn through play, it’s nature’s way of making it fun! 


Quality toys are expensive, and children quickly become bored with a toy once its play value has been exhausted. By providing new play materials every week or two, parents can save money and significantly contribute towards the development and education of their children.

How does it work?

Toy Library is similar to a book library. You pay a one off annual fee which entitles you to hire unlimited toys for a two week period, after which time you exchange them for new ones.
