Reachout Toy Library

Members agree to:

SAFETY Reachout Toy Library follows Toy Libraries Australia’s recommendations as much as possible. Warning labels are posted on toys that have small parts and are not suitable for children under 3 years old. For safety, please follow the guidelines below: 

• Check all toys and parts for safety before allowing children access to them.

• Inform staff if any of the toys or packaging are broken, have lost their warning labels, have been repaired or you feel they are unsafe in any way.

• Do not allow children access to packaging, boxes, plastic bags, straps, netting, etc. which we use to store the toys.

• Provide helmets and protective gear for use with bikes and ride-on toys.

• Ensure that children have adequate supervision while using the toys.

• Ensure that the toy is appropriate for the age and ability of the child.

• Ensure that the toy is used in the appropriate manner and for the purpose in which it was intended.

• Supervise your children while visiting the Toy Library

TOY ALLOCATION Up to four toys per member family and 8 toys per group membership.

BORROWING PERIOD The borrowing period is for up to 2 weeks.

CHECKING TOYS It’s a good idea to check toys before your children play with them, preferably at the time of borrowing. If a piece is missing or damaged please let staff or a committee member know. So that all our toys are available for borrowing as often as possible, we do ask you to return them to the Toy Library before being borrowed by another member.

LOST OR DAMAGED TOYS As parents ourselves we understand that damages and  loss happen - please don’t worry about this unduly - just  let us know when you return your toys. You’ll be surprised how often that lost piece turns up! We make small additional charges for the following:

• Missing piece or missing bag: $2 per item (this is refunded when it is returned)

• Damaged piece due to wear & tear or a design fault: no charge

• Complete toy lost or major damage: assessed by the Committee

OVERDUE TOYS Toys are on loan for up to two weeks. You are more than welcome to email the Toy Library ( if you need to extend your borrowing period. However, some toys are really popular, so we try to have toys returned as soon as practical so everyone has a chance to play!

COMMITTEE Members are encouraged to join our committee.  We want to create a supportive network among our wonderful members, and spending time with others is a great way to meet people and find out about whats going on in our community. Being on the committee involves attending a monthly meeting (usually only an hour). Volunteering to assist with fundraising and helping with the maintainance and stocktake of toys is always appreciated.

CARE OF TOYS When borrowing an item from the Toy Library the item is your responsibility. Toys should be brought inside overnight, including bikes, slides and climbing frames. Please treat Toy Library toys and packaging with all reasonable care. Please return toys in their bags/boxes in a clean and dry condition. We have a helpful little cleaning guide to make this easy!
