Colchester Toy library is a local family charity that has been running since 1984! The aim of the Toy Library is to lend toys to all families around the Colchester area promoting play, community and sharing of resources. We are now happily settled in our new location above Prettygate Library and we offer a relaxed and welcoming space for anyone to come along and try out our toys, enjoy our soft play area and just have some fun! We are open to all families on Tuesday 10-12.30, Wednesday 10-3pm and Friday 12.30-3pm.  Membership is £15 per year and you can borrow 4 toys for up to a month and you are welcome to swap them as often as you like! Membership is available to all families and we also offer a ‘membership plus’ for £25 a year where you can borrow up to 10 toys at a time which is great for larger families, child-minders and play groups! We also run SEN sessions on a Tuesday afternoon for children with additional needs where there will be a chance to try out our specialist SEN equipment for hire. We offer a party hire service which is available to all members for a donation and we have a great selection of larger toys to choose from such as slides, a mini rollercoaster and softplay! So please come along and pay us a visit, it’ll be lovely to see you!
