Mt Evelyn Toy Library has been operating in the Shire of Yarra ranges for 35 years. We are a wonderful community organisation committed to providing quality toys, games and puzzles to families with children from birth to early primary school age.
We currently have over 2000 toys covering areas such as role-play, costumes, construction, puzzles, games, music and outdoor & sport plus much more.
There are many reasons to join a toy library including:
- Saving money by borrowing instead of buying toys
- Exposing children to a greater variety of toys
- Saving on storage space as you can borrow and then return big and bulky toys
- Letting your children test out a toy before you buy it
- Helping the environment with less plastic toys being discarded
- Meeting other families in the community
- Return the toys when the kids are bored (or parents are sick of them)
Early childhood play is recognised as an important part of a child’s development, the toy library gives children access to a full range of different play experiences for a fraction of the cost of purchasing new toys. If play is a child’s work then they must also have the tools for their trade. Toys are tools that help a child to enjoy play so join the toy library and have all these tools at your finger tips.
New members are always welcome; just pop in when we are open for a tour and join on the spot.
