Mangawhai Toy Library

Reduce, Reuse, Replay! 

Reduce the clutter, reuse the joy, and replay the fun! Join us in making sustainability a part of every playtime adventure.

At Mangawhai Toy Library, we've got everything kids would need from Duplo, dress-ups, ride-ons, puzzles, music, train sets, role play, and more.

We work just like a book library, but for toys. For an affordable annual membership fee, with lots of benefits- 

  • Cheaper than buying toys yourself
  • Kids learn through play
  • Less broken toys in landfill
  • Toys by age and interest, as your kids grow over time
  • Once a toy has been explored it doesn’t clutter your home but is returned and replaced by more playing fun
  • A cool way to keep children entertained while teaching them about sharing, borrowing and reusing.
