Toy selection

Toys are catalogued by type (games, puzzles, construction, musical, etc.).  New toys are displayed at the front of the toy library.

Our experienced coordinator is available during opening hours to help you select toys for your children. The coordinator knows all our toys and has a background in early childhood education. She can recommend developmentally appropriate toys and give you ideas for creative play and activities.

Older children will enjoy selecting toys for themselves.

Toy responsibility

We want children to have fun and enjoy the toy library toys. Members are responsible for the toys they borrow. This includes (but is not limited to):

  • correct use of toys
  • returning the toy clean How to guide read HERE
  • choosing age-appropriate toys
  • taking care with small parts and magnets
  • not leaving toys outside in the elements.

Consider the safety of younger siblings when choosing toys. Warning labels are placed on toys containing small pieces. Some of our toys are stored in plastic bags and we recommend that you put bags out of children’s reach while the toys are in use in your home.

Cleaning toys

Toys need to be returned clean. As a general rule of thumb, return the toys in the condition that you would like to borrow them. Clean toys help to prevent the spread of germs. If toys are returned visibly dirty the member will be asked to take the toy home and clean it.

Here’s a quick guide to cleaning the toys:

  • A hairdryer is handy to dry hard to reach places, but ensure it is not too hot.

Battery toys: Do not submerge in water wring out sponge an wipe over.

Damaged toys

We understand that sometimes accidents do happen. If a toy is damaged by a member, small fines may apply. Report damaged toys to the coordinator promptly. If the toy is assessed as unusable (either through damage or essential pieces missing), the committee will decide on an appropriate payment to fix or replace the toy.
