A huge thank you to all our members who volunteered or attended our BBQ at Bunnings Hawthorn. It was a fantastic success with $1,500 being raised for the Kew Toy Library.


Thank you also to the following local businesses who donated supplies that made our BBQ possible:

  • Coles – Kew, Balwyn and Hawthorn.

Toy review: Brio Pinball Challenge Machine

Janine Westerbeek - member


A fun toy for the whole family! All you need is a flat, even surface and the fun can begin. Durable and easily portable, you just need to make sure to keep the metal balls & plastic gears in a separate bag if you move it around. Great for hand-eye coordination & even teaching teamwork when say one parent shares a side with a younger sibling. After the kids go to bed, the adults may even be found to keep playing! Highly recommended - 5 stars.




Extended - play more with three extra toys

We've received great feedback on our 'three extra toys' offer and are happy to be able to extend it until 30 June 2021.


Drop by the toy library to borrow an extra three toys on top of your usual borrowing amount. Help your little one to discover a different toy category or add a few options to your toy rotation.


Missing piece fees and overdue fees will still apply to the extra toys and all borrowed items MUST be returned thoroughly clean, otherwise a $5 cleaning fee (per dirty toy) will apply.

A reminder that we will continue being cash-free and will happily accept payment by card.
