Toy Libraries in Dunedin

Toy Libraries in New Zealand are an inexpensive way for kids to enjoy a wide selection of toys at a miniscule fraction of cost. These libraries are not for profit organisations run by members and allow patrons to borrow both large and small indoor and outdoor toys, puzzles, games and learning activities generally for a two week period. In addition, they provide an opportunity to meet other families in the community. Many Toy Libraries also provide Bouncy Castles for hire.
