Welcome to Merry Go Round Toy Library

Our Spinning Top Toy Library will be CLOSED on Friday 9th August - apologies for any inconvenience.  As hire is by default two weeks when booking, if you book to collect on Friday 26th July it will be necessary to book three weeks and a return date of Friday 16th August as a minimum. Please rest assured that once we see this situation we will refund the cost of one week of toy hire to your toy library account. 

Merry Go Round Toy Library OPEN for click and collect services Tuesdays 10am-4.30pm from Exeter Scrapstore.

Spinning Top Toy Library OPEN  Fridays 10am-1pm at the Beacon Centre; you are welcome to stay and play at Spinning Top.

We are very happy to give advice when you collect/return toys or via email or social media.

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.

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.
