ITEMS BORROWED – In the interest of hygiene for other children, please ensure all toys are cleaned and washed prior to return. Failure to do so will result in a $5 fine per piece.


Taking Toys Out: “Star” Toys that are extra expensive to buy or maintain, are $2  or $5 to rent (Full Membership excludes star toy rental charges) and all other toys are free. All toys have the recommended age range listed on the bag to help you make the best selection.

  • Electronic Toys and any toy with a battery = $2
  • Outdoor Toys: $2 or $5
  • Ride ons: $5

Lost, Broken, Damaged or Dirty Toys: There is a $5 charge per piece for lost, broken, damaged or DIRTY pieces. If you find the missing piece later, simply bring it back and receive a $5 refund. If a lost or missing piece costs more than $5, you may be asked to pay the difference / replace the toy. If you have LOST the whole item, you will be asked to pay % of the replacement value, based on 20% annual depreciation of the age of the toy, to a minimum of $10.

Overdue Toys: Overdue toys will be fined $2.50 per toy, for every week the toy is overdue.

Renewal of Toys: Toys can be renewed once in person at Saturday openings, or via email  to, up to midday on the day they are due before they start to incur Overdue charges. Star Toys will incur the rental charge when renewed.
