Cleaning at the Toy Library

July 14, 2022

The 11th Ballarat Guides and Choc-Chic Ranger Guides have put aside time to provide service to the Ballarat Toy Library.

At the request of the Toy Library, the girls spent several sessions cleaning all the toys and checking that they function well.

Ballarat Toy Library

The Ballarat Toy Library allows families to borrow toys and take them home.  They have an extensive collection of quality toys, equipment, puzzles and games to meet each stage of a child’s development.

Families have the opportunity to discover what toys their children most enjoy. It’s also a great place to meet other families in the community.  Other benefits are:

  • saving members money
  • saving the need for storage space
  • reducing the carbon footprint in homes



Donations of toys are always welcome.  The toys don’t need to be new, but they do need to be in a condition that you would be happy to give to a friend.

Donations can be dropped off during sessions or collection can be arranged.

Donated toys should be:

  • Well designed, constructed and safe
  • Durable and robust
  • Complete and in good condition
  • Suitable for children from birth to 6 years old
  • Easy to clean (not soft toys, dolls or teddies)
  • Easily transported in a car
