Play Plus is a toy lending service based in the Inch / Cameron Toll area of Edinburgh. Join the toy library as a member and you can borrow toys and enjoy free open play sessions, where you meet new families, and play with the toys. We have a wide range of good quality toys and resources for children, families, carers and childcare groups. We are using a lend engine service where you can register, log in and browse all our toys.
How Our Toy Library Works
As a member, you can borrow any four items and keep them for up to 4 weeks. To register for a membership go to http://playplustoylibrary.lend-engine-app.com. (£4 to join for a year)
You have to reserve toys online before collecting. You can borrow toys as a click and collect service, or pick them up at a session.
We run Stay and Play sessions on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. We run two 45 minute sessions each day. Booking is advised as we are still running on a restricted number of adults per session. Bookings to be made via Facebook messenger or email. Please state the name of the adult attending, date, and time.
At a stay and play session, toys are laid on floor mats and at child-size tables for your child to explore. We often have some sensory equipment out for little hands to explore textures via leaves, playdough, and painting. Help is always at hand to suggest activities, and with choosing the age and stage appropriate toys to take home.
Toys out at the session are not currently available to borrow on the day but you can reserve for pick up the following week.
We ask you to follow the government guidelines and use hand sanitizer when entering the room, use a face covering (if not exempt), and don’t attend a session if you have any covid symptoms.
