Welcome to Canterbury Area Toy Library for 2016

Lots is happening at the toy library, with new toys being added and some great ideas and initiatives from your enthusiastic parent committee.

Won’t you please join us for another year of fun, play, meeting new friends and families, and exciting toys?

Grant news - thank you Telstra Kids Grants!

We are delighted to announce our success in applying for a $1,200 grant from Telstra. Telstra Kids funds the little things that can make a big difference to kids' lives, helping kids to play and learn. Our Telstra Kids grant will be used to upgrade our toy library software to the latest version, go on-line and purchase a much needed new laptop and printer for the library!

Huge thanks to Robert Cherry from Telstra for applying for the funding for us as a Telstra employee. We are very excited to share in the million dollars the Telstra Foundation provides each year to help kids across Australia to connect to their local communities.


Hundreds of toys for price of one or two new

How quickly does the novelty of an expensive new toy wear-off for your children?

The Canterbury Toy Library offers your children over a thousand entertaining and stimulating, new and vintage toys in excellent condition all year for the price of just one or two new toys! Toys are suitable for ages 6 months to 6 years.

Volunteering takes less time than rearranging the storage space to pack away all of those purchased toys when your children tire of them!
