Our mission is he tamaiti tākaro, he tamaiti ako - a playing child, is a learning child
Te Whare o Rēhia Ōtaki Toy Library is a non-profit organisation run by a voluntary committee with support from our members and their families.
We offer over 400 toys for hire from as little as $1 a fortnight. Guaranteed to delight, entertain and distract children of all ages.
An early play is part of a child's first steps towards their education and development. Our range of safe, educational, fun toys and resources are carefully chosen to inspire and promote creative and active play for children in New Zealand.
Our toy library collection is regularly updated with new toys and resources. We have puzzles, games, Duplo and Lego, train sets, electronic toys, ride-on, dress-up costumes, puppets, themed sets, outdoor toys and much more...
We aim to keep the toy library affordable. It costs $25 per year for a volunteer membership and $80 for a non-volunteer membership. Gold Card and Community Service Card Holders can get either membership for half price ($12.50 for volunteer or $40 for non-volunteer)
Most of our toys are $1 - $5 for a two-week rental. As well our main toy selection, we have a special party pack and a small bouncy castle.
