Western Hills Toy Library

Welcome to the Western Hills Toy Library in Maungaraki!

Our toys are guaranteed to delight and entertain children from newborn to five years (and over!). We offer a huge range of toys for hire from as little as 50 cents a fortnight.

Play is an important part of a child's first steps towards their education and development. Our range of safe, educational and fun toys and resources are carefully chosen to inspire and promote creative and active play.

Here you can view our toy catalogue and see our newest toy additions. If you are a member, you can reserve toys and book your volunteer duty time.

Our toy collection is regularly updated with new toys including puzzles, games, Duplo, activity centres, Lego, train sets, electronic toys, ride-ons, role play sets, dress-up costumes and more.

It’s party time!

The Toy Library needs your help!

We are a non-profit organisation run by a voluntary committee, with support from our members and their families. We are always in need of new committee members. New committee members provide new ideas and a fresh view of what can be improved. Come and join our fun group and help your local toy library stay fresh and new.
