Elwood Toy Library is a not-for-profit community organisation with a voluntary committee of management. Itís a place where you can borrow toys, puzzles, games and costumes for up to three weeks at a time.
At last count Elwood Toy Library has more than 2000 toys. We stock firm favourites such as Fisher Price, Little Tikes, Duplo and Playskool, as well as quality handcrafted wooden toys.
Toys are filed by age and category. We have toys for water play and toys for playing house, puppet theatres, board games, jigsaw puzzles and train sets.
We have a comprehensive selection of large toys: trikes, rockers, balance bikes, walkers and cars.

Our baby toys are especially popular, from activity mats and baby gyms to posting boxes, block sorters and musical toys.
