Toy Libraries in Wellington

Toys help develop physical, mental and social skills while at the same time allowing the kids to have fun. 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. Toy Libraries provide access to quality toys for a small annual membership fee and an opportunity to meet other families in the community. Many Toy Libraries also provide Bouncy Castles for hire.
