The Manawatu Toy Library is a non-profit organisation lending toys, games and other play equipment.
Membership is open to families and community groups, for an affordable subscription fee. We have a large selection of toys to suit a wide range of ages and abilities.
Play was once regarded as just an outlet for energy, but is now understood to be necessary for learning. Toys are tools for learning and communication.
