Play Plus is a toy library based in the Inch / Cameron Toll area of Edinburgh. Join the toy library as a member and enjoy free open play sessions, where you can drop in to meet new families, and borrow or play with the toys. There is a wide range of good quality toys and resources for children, families, carers and childcare groups. We also offer teas, coffees and healthy snacks for children during the play session.
HOW OUR TOY LIBRARY WORKS
On a Tuesday morning from 9.30am to 1pm the Toy Library is open, you can join us for all or part of the session. Toys are laid on floor mats and at child size tables out for your child to explore and choose what to borrow.
We often have some ‘mucky play’ equipment out for little hands to explore textures via sand, water and painting. Help is always at hand to suggest activities, and with choosing the age and stage appropriate toys to take home.
For the last hour of the Toy Library we bring out some bikes for children to play with, and if the weather is nice will arrange activities to play outside with.
To borrow toys you must become a member (£4 to join for a year) where you will receive a membership card and number, you can then borrow up to four items at a time for a period of up to one month. There is no charge to borrow toys and the teas / coffees are free but donations are welcome.

MEET THE TEAM
Toy Library Co-ordinator
Maria loves introducing easy crafts, using recycled materials, at the sessions and she always has a paper plate craft up her sleeve. She enjoys seeing both children and adults being creative at the craft table and loves it when the children ask if they can take their artwork home.
Toy Library Assistant
Emma loves to watch as children learn new skills like how to do a puzzle or walk with a walker for the first time and seeing the eureka moment, the moment the penny drops when they’ve finally got it! The perseverance that follows these moments is second to none.
Sheila loves interacting with the children, it makes her feel young again.
