The Bilby Toy Library


BilbyToyLibraryToys, Books and Costumes for Five & Unders

For kids five & under, learning and playing go hand in hand and The Bilby Toy Library is a great place to borrow a range of toys that will delight your kids and help them learn. Borrowing different toys at different times means that you will have less discarded toys around the house that your kids are tired of, the kids regularly have new and interesting toys to play with,and you can introduce a range of different toys without breaking the bank.

The range of toys for every age group five & under is great and gives kids a chance to build skills,confidence and a love of learning through play and exploration. Little brains and personalities develop through play and the Bilby Toy Library is a practical and affordable way to get your kids playing and learning with different toys.

The Bilby Toy Library is a program of The Berkeley Vale Neighbourhood Centre and runs entirely on the funds it gets from membership, as well as the dedication and interest of staff and volunteers at the Centre. It’s a great local resource for families, playgroups and anyone caring for kids five & under, and it now includes a large range of children’s dress-up costumes.

We have an Online Library Service using SETLS Toy Library Software. Anyone with internet access can now view the Bilby Toy Library’s catalogue at https://bilbytoylibrary.setls.com.au/toy_picture_index
