A toy library is one of our community's hidden treasures. Behind the walls and the cupboards are an abundance of colour and joy - toys just waiting on the shelf to be played with at your home! What an amazing library they run at Mount Evelyn! There are the big toys that roll, the doll houses that sit, the rockers that … rock. Toys to build, make, solve, inspire and most importantly entertain. The store cupboard is like an entire universe that has almost every toy imaginable. Construction, dress up, sporting, puzzles, games, toddler toys, baby toys, role play, musical toys, outdoor toys and arty crafty things. The storeroom is a teacher’s (and now a Mamma's) dream! Over 1500 items to borrow and entertain your family at home - just maybe not all at once.
The program runs on a membership program, allowing you to borrow up to 3 toys at a time for a $50 per year or 6 toys for a $60. This means that each time you visit, you and your child (if you trust their judgment) can borrow a fresh batch of toys, that change all the time, that you don’t have to store once they grow bored or too old for them, and save you the cash from buying new toys.
Mamma's special mention: The Mt Evelyn toy library also has a stash of party toys for hire that would be perfect for hosting a little ones birthday at home! You can see the fun we had with them over here!
