Toy Library Federation
of New Zealand
Many toy libraries have a wide range of water and outside toys available. Why buy and add to the landfill or your storage shed when you can use a toy library?
Use the outdoors as a place to explore, to encourage observation and gross motor skills. Most of all enjoy your playtime and remember to cover up in the sun.
The Toy Library Federation of NZ is the national body to which individual toy libraries belong. We act as a support to new and existing not-for-profit toy libraries; offering information and support on all aspects of running a toy library, toy selection and the value of play.
Toy Libraries offer a range of quality toys, puzzles, games and learning activities for members to hire for a set period of time. In NZ our toy libraries mainly cater for children 0-8 years. Many libraries also stock games, puzzles, sport, musical and other play items suitable for the entire family. Some therapeutic toy libraries such as those run by CCS focus on children with special needs. Toy Libraries are run by a group of volunteers for the benefit of children in your community. Fees vary from library to library.
