Toy Libraries Australia represents over 160 not-for-profit toy libraries around the country.

Libraries have an annual joining fee and often require members to volunteer at the library a few times during the year in order to become a member.

The toy library has games, puzzles, costumes and of course toys, available to borrow for up to 3 weeks at a time.

Do you use your local toy library? Do you mind having to volunteer at your local toy library? Does the joining fee outweigh the cost of buying your child/children new toys throughout the year?

No I haven't used it but I do like the bigger outdoor toys
For birthday parties
I think there are many benefits to using the toy library! You can save on money by constantly updating and changing your kids' toy box especially with babies whose stages of development change so quickly and need new stimulus constantly. You can save on space and also be more environmentally and ethically sound by not buying new toys. Costumes are also great for the older kids for things like Book Week. I also don't mind volunteering because I like the sense of community.
I didn't know you could hire costumes at toy libraries - that's brilliant

I'm ashamed to say that I haven't used a toy library before, but I really should get onto it!
