We are a small charity organisation, supported by Southampton City Council.
We run weekly “open access” toy libraries, free for children 0-14 years and their families. We also offer Toy Loaning Schemes to childminders, Parent and Toddler groups, Nurseries and voluntary groups across the city,
“Playtime” sessions are held at Swaythling Neighbourhood Centre on the 2nd Wednesday in the month 10:30 – 12:00(term time only).
How does it work? Who can join?
The Toy Library works like a book library you borrow toys and play equipment then return them within the stated time. Membership and loans are freely available to anyone living in Southampton area. Parent, carers, professionals, and groups can register to borrow toys and equipment.
We can also arrange bulk loans for group hire and party hire.
Please contact Elaine Buckland (Administrative coordinator) or Rob Iliffe (Toy Librarian).
