Waimairi Toy Library – Burnside, Christchurch

Located in Burnside, Christchurch, we has been serving the North West of Christchurch since 1988 and we have so many wonderful and educational toys to share. Toy libraries are an invaluable resource that help not only our children’s development, but also our environment, by reducing the amount of plastics that ends up in our landfills. This helps keep our environment rubbish-free one toy at a time.

We are open!

The library is now open again.  As well as being able to come in and browse, members can book some of our most popular toys for click and collect every Thursday and Saturday!
Easy as system to book lots of new toys and games for the little ones to explore.
