Wanganui Toy Library Incorporated
The Wanganui Toy Library provides toys for babies through to eight year olds. Our aim is to bring good quality, well designed toys to the children of Wanganui, to help them learn through play. A trained librarian is employed to provide knowledgeable assistance to parents and caregivers when choosing age appropriate toys. They are also a central contact point for an organisation that relies on volunteers for its operation. Please feel free to visit us in person at 142 London Street Wanganui. We are open every Thursday 9.30am to 11.30am, as well as the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month from 10am to 12pm. We are closed over the Christmas school holidays.

15-Feb-2013:  Party Hire
Having a children's party, but not sure how to keep them entertained - the toy library can now offer toys for party hire. Pay $20 and get FOUR of our larger toys (roller coaster, coupe car, slide, climbing frame or so on) for one week. This will be on top of your usual toy allowance. This offers great value, as these are usually popular gold star toys or proven favourites. This offer is ONLY AVAILABLE TO MEMBERS of the toy library, and bookings must be made in advance to ensure availability, due to limited storage space in the toy library. You can check out our range of these toy using the toy list on this website - search under Outdoor or Ride Ons. This cost has been considered carefully by the committee, and you couldn't buy these toys for that price! Why buy these toys, and then have to store them when you really only want them for a day, borrow them from us.

19-May-2012:  Cleaning of Toys
Please ensure that before returning toys you have checked they are clean. We have had a few that have come in clearly covered in dirt or sand. We don't have the facilities for completely cleaning toys, and usually it's too busy to do so. It is members responsibility to make sure toys are returned in a clean state. Please don't be offended if you are asked to take an item home if it is dirty.
