helping families learn through play

The Eltham Toy Library is a not-for-profit organization giving members the opportunity to borrow from a huge range of over 800 toys, games and puzzles. For a small annual membership fee families from Eltham and surrounding suburbs have a cost effective way of providing a variety of toys for their children from birth to school age. 


  •   Children become quickly bored with toys after their initial interest wanes and require different toys as they reach new developmental stages 
  •   Provide variety and versatility of learning experiences 
  •   Save money and space on unwanted toys 
  •   Children love visiting the toy library to help choose toys to take home and parents have the opportunity to meet other families with young children in the community 

Each year we have a committee of parents who kindly volunteer their time to help maintain the running of the toy library. Their role includes coordinating fundraising activities, purchasing new toys, publicising our services and producing quarterly newsletters to keep our members informed. 

We are a not-for-profit community organisation where members can borrow from a huge range of toys, games, and puzzles suitable children of all ages.
