Welcome to Merry Go Round Toy Libraries!

Covid Update:
Both toy libraries will continue to open for collections of booked toys from an open doorway; returned toys are quarantined and cleaned before being lent out again. We ask members to be aware of others during collections, and keep distanced. We are still available to give advice from a safe distance or via email or social media.

Merry Go Round Toy Library OPEN for click and collect services Tuesdays 10am-4.30pm from Exeter Scrapstore.
Spinning Top Toy Library OPEN for click and collect services Fridays 10am-1pm at the Beacon Centre.

Borrow toys from our new online click and collect toy library service. Choose from a huge selection of good quality toys and play resources for children of all ages! Both our toy libraries are now online and ready for you to borrow toys from!

NOTE Membership allows you to borrow from either toy library, but toys can only be collected and returned to the toy library they were booked from. Please do a separate transaction for each toy library.

Our service is contact free and Covid-19 safe, with all returned toys quarantined for at least 72 hours before being checked, cleaned and put back on the shelf.

Important Note
To view toys by site, please select the toy library you want to borrow from listed at the top of each category link. Toys from Merry Go Round start with code M or T, toys from Spinning Top start with code C.
