Brand new website coming soon

Our existing website is currently down. The new one will up in the new year. 


Please clean the toys

If you have borrowed toys over the Summer period, for this special privilege we do ask that you bring them back to the toy library sparkling clean, as they skipped being cleaned during our December stock take sessions. 
We recommend soapy water and an old tooth brush to get into all the tiny nooks and small corners.
