Our toy collection
We have over 1800 different toys ranging from products for babies to STEM toys for growing minds.
Our collection can evolve with you as your child grows. We have baby toys to engage little hands and eyes. Many of our toys promote the development of fine motor skills. Walkers and activity tables are popular as children find their feet. As they get older, sorting toys can help them develop an awareness of colours and shapes. Older children are well catered for with scooters and ride-ons, puzzles and games. We also have a large range of outdoor toys and sporting sets that promote active play.

Toy hire for birthday parties
Members of the Moreland Toy Library who have booked the Scout Hall for a children’s party may also access a limited range of toys for use during the party.
Scout Hall hire
The Scout Hall can be hired for your child's birthday party. To make a booking, please contact Jackie Hill on 03 9383 2946.
Please note that the Moreland Toy Library is not affiliated with the Scouts so any bookings or queries must be made directly with Jackie Hill.
Hiring toys for your party gives you unlimited access to the toys in our small storeroom for the duration of your party. This storeroom contains single-piece toys such as ride-on toys, tricycles, scooters, toy vehicles, rockers, slide, rolling barrel, basketball hoop, etc. The exact toys vary from week to week, depending on what other members have borrowed. There is no guarantee regarding the number and type of toys that will be available. To ensure that a particular toy is available, you will need to borrow it during a Toy Library session and then bring it along to your party.
Please Note: Toy hire for birthday parties does not include any toys in bags.
Toy Hire Fee
$20.00, or $10.00 concession card holders.
Any member of the Moreland Toy Library who has completed at least one rostered duty in the current year of membership and is on the roster for their second duty may hire toys for parties.
