Devonport Toy Library


Expand your child’s world of play

Devonport Toy Library is a not-for-profit organisation which has been operating for over 25 years. Children learn through play, and our aim is to provide children with a wide range of quality toys to support their learning and development, and most of all have fun!

Our library has hundreds of quality toys for children six months to six years. Toys include ride-ons, role play toys (cooking, medicine, construction etc), musical toys, infant and toddler toys, water and sand toys, train sets and dress ups.

The library is run by a committee of volunteers with the help of our members, and funded through membership fees and grants from Auckland Council, the New Zealand Lotteries Commission and others.

10 great reasons to join the library

  • Toy libraries enable your children to indulge their latest passion without breaking the bank.
  • It’s a great Saturday morning activity during wet weather.
  • It’s a great way to keep your house free of permanent ‘clutter’.
  • It’s a good lesson in sharing and responsibility.
  • It’s great for the environment as it’s a true reduce and reuse service.
  • It gives you a chance to try out more expensive toys such as balance bikes before you buy.
  • The kids can’t wait to go and it’s better than the toy shop as they can ‘shop’ to their heart's content.
  • It’s a good way to get to know local families in your community.
  • Hire those really BIG toys and then you don’t have to store them. Fun!
