Derbyshire Toy Libraries has over 2,000 toys and resources to lend. The toys are fun, durable and stimulating and allow children to develop important skills.
Experienced Toy Library Co-ordinators can help you select toys, offering great tips and ideas for creative play to help bring out the best in your child.
They run regular sessions for babies, toddlers and preschoolers and each Stay & Play session is run by experienced playworkers and volunteers. Your child can discover new activities while you enjoy a cuppa and a chat with other parents and carers. And then you can borrow toys and games to take home, for just a few pence.
