More about Toybrary Austin
Toybrary is a toy lending library and birthday party venue that also offers drop-in childcare for kids ages 6 months to 5 years old. As every parent knows, kids are happiest when their minds are stimulated — but constantly purchasing new toys is costly, and not every toy you buy will be a hit forever. As your child plays and then inevitably moves on to something new, it can feel like your home has been overtaken by kid clutter!
That’s where Toybrary comes in. Borrowing toys instead of buying them keeps your child engaged, your home orderly, and your wallet happy. Instead of spending too much money on toys that will only be discarded in time, children can explore their own areas of interest — including literacy, art, movement, math, pretend play, culture, and scientific thinking — and move on to something new when they’re ready.
Toybrary thoroughly cleans and disinfects every toy between uses, so your child can safely enjoy a ton of great, educational and high-quality items. Learn more here about the toys in Toybrary’s collection here.
Toybrary memberships start at $40 per month and include free selected events plus discounts on birthday party room rentals! You and your little one can also drop by the incredible Toybrary facility anytime to “Stay & Play” for as long as you like. Stay & Play is free for Toybrary Austin members and only $7 per child for non-members. There’s a new outdoor shaded playground to enjoy in addition to the awesome indoor space. Plus, beginning May 8th, Toybrary is open from 9:00 to noon on Mondays throughout the summer!
