OUR STORY

A toy library is place where you can borrow or rent toys. It provides children with affordable access to a wider variety of playthings, while reducing environmental waste and decluttering homes.

Our family was looking for an affordable way to provide open-ended toys and Montessori materials for our child when we came across the concept of toy lending programs. We were instantly intrigued and developed a vision for a toy library here in Memphis.


We have big dreams and humble beginnings! Memberships are offered on a Pay What You Can basis.

HOW DOES THE TOY LIBRARY WORK?

We are relatively new and don't have a dedicated home yet. We currently operate through contactless porch pick-up and drop off at a residence in 38112, in Old Binghampton.

1. Create an account on our toy catalog site, and choose a membership type. You can select our standard membership for $15/month, or choose the Pay What You Can option and adjust the pricing to meet your needs.

2. Once you have joined as a member, you will be able to reserve toys and add them to your cart. Select up to 5 toys, then "check out" with your reservation. You will receive a confirmation email.

3. Once your items are ready, I will check them out to you and place them on the porch. You will receive a second email notification, this time letting you know that your toys are ready for pick up! Reservations are located in or next to the clear plastic bin on the porch.  Please find the bag with your name on the tag.

4. Keep the toys for up to one month, or return them earlier and trade them for new toys.
