Closed for ANZAC Day


The Toy Library will be closed on Saturday 25 April and Monday 27 April for ANZAC Day.

We will be open as usual from Friday 1 May.

Happy New Year


The Fun and Games Toy Library is re-opening for 2015 from Monday 2 February 9.00-11.30am.  We will be closed for Waitangi Day on Friday 6 February, then it is business as usual.

Please ensure the toys you are returning after the holiday break are clean and dry before they are returned to the shelves.

Christmas hours


The Fun and Games Toy Library will be closed for the Christmas holidays from 16 December 2014  until 1 February 2015.   (Also closed for Waitangi Day 6 Febrary).

The last day to return or borrow any toys before we close is Monday 15 December.

We will reopen on Monday 2 February 2015 .

Any toys borrowed in the first week of December will be due back the first week of February. Toys taken out the second week of December, or the final day on the 15th, will be due back in the second week of February.  Below is a list of issue dates and the corresponding due dates.  We don’t want all the toys returned on the first day that we re-open in the new year, nor for you to incur any late fees, so we encourage you to return toys within the week they are due back.  

Loan Date:  December: 1, 5, 6 = Due Date:  February: 2, 7

Loan Date:  December: 8, 12, 13, 15 = Due Date:  February: 9, 13, 14

As always, members may borrow four toys, two games, two puzzles, and two costumes. DVDs are $2 each or three for $5.  Over the holidays, regular toy library rules still apply to the borrowed toys. It is important to check the toys before leaving the library because once the toy has been issued any missing pieces become the responsibility of the member. Returning a toy with a missing (or broken) part will result in a $7 fee per piece. Make sure to check the toys and inform the librarian appropriately so the toy list can be amended and you are not levied with any fines. Damaged or lost toys will need to be replaced at the member’s expense and the cost will vary depending on the toy’s value. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to ask the next time you are at the toy library, or via email  

Success at Parnell Market Day


Fun and Games Toy Library took part in the Parnell Market Day on November 1.  It was organised by Parnell Inc and Holy Trinity Cathedral.


In the children’s area there was a bouncy castle and face painting, and a selection of the Toy Library’s outdoor toys.  It was great to see so many children enjoying themselves, especially on our “roller coaster”.  All the toys are available for members to borrow.
