Become a member of the Moonee Valley Toy Library now!
The Moonee Valley Toy Library has over 1,000 high quality, educational and fun toys to borrow, suitable for children from birth to 6 years old.
Members can borrow 3 or 6 toys at a time, for up to 3 weeks.
Our toy collection includes a huge selection of puzzles, games, co-ordination toys, imaginative play, train sets, musical instruments, sand and water play, dress-ups, puppets and theatres, party toys and more.
We have a variety of larger toys that families may not own – ride on cars (motorised and not), roller coasters (like you see at the play centres), slides, see-saws, mini kitchens and work benches.
Toy donations are appreciated and help boost our toy collection. Read more about the type of toys we are able to accept.
All members can borrow a BONUS toy – a puzzle or game – during May. Puzzles and games are excellent toys with so many benefits, including hand/eye coordination, fine motor skills, communication, winning and losing, taking turns and more. That’s why we’ve dedicated May to puzzles and games – we want all the kids to discover and have fun with them. We have puzzles and games for all ages and stages. Read more about Puzzle month.

The 2012 Member Survey results are available now, thanks to everyone who completed the survey. It was a good opportunity for members to let us know what they like, what we can improve, toy suggestions and more. Happily, 100% of survey respondents said they would recommend the toy library to their friends and family! We are committed to addressing all feedback, and where we can’t implement suggestions, we’ll let you know (and why) too. View the 2012 Member Survey results now.
