Conditions of Borrowing


The borrower is responsible to ensure that items borrowed are suitable for the age and skills of the children who will use them. The Toy Library shall not be liable for any injury, in any way.

The Toy Library cannot accept any liability as a result of a failure to comply with specific instructions, and under no circumstances will the Toy Library be held liable for any injury caused by or arising from items supplied.

The borrower must ensure that any or all children or person using any equipment supplied by the Toy Library are supervised at all times. It is the borrower’s responsibility to examine the supplied items prior to use to determine fitness and state of repair. The borrower shall be responsible for any indemnity against loss or damage. In the event of a loss, damage or theft of the item/s supplied the borrower must replace the item.  All items are to be returned in the same condition as borrowed.

If your child is suffering from a communicable disease, please do not borrow toys until they are well. If your child has an infectious disease, whilst toys are on loan please disinfect them prior to returning them and let the Toy Librarian know.

Toys are to be cleaned prior to returning and returned with all parts, including tags and bags. A $1 fee per missing tag will  be applied. Please ensure toys are turned off to preserve the life of the toy and batteries prior to returning them.

Most toys have rechargeable batteries and must be returned with rechargeable batteries in these cases.  A $4 fee per lost rechargeable battery will be applied if not replaced.

Late fees are $1 per toy per weekday.  If you wish to extend your loan you must notify the Toy Librarian prior to the toy being late.  Extensions will be permitted where possible. Borrowing periods start from the requested pick up date for a 2 week period.

Failure to comply may result in a suspension or termination of your membership. Terms are subject to change. In such an event 14 business days notice will be given in writing.
