About us
The Ocean Grove Toy Library is a voluntary non–profit organisation run by and for parents and families of the local Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads, Wallington and Marcus Hill communities.

We aim to provide pleasurable play and learning experiences at minimal costs via a focus on high quality specialised toys.


What is a toy library?
A toy library is a place where parents, carers and families can go to borrow a large range of educational toys, games and puzzles for children up to the age of 6. Much like a book library, members can borrow toys for a fortnightly period, then choose more toys on their return.

The importance of toys to children
Play is important to children and toys are a major element in helping children play and learn. A Toy Library welcomes children, their families and care givers to come and borrow well-designed toys, games, puzzles and equipment.

The cost of toys
Good toys are often so expensive that they are beyond the means of many families. A toy library is able to provide a large selection of quality toys and equipment for loan.

Benefits of a Toy Library

Opportunity to meet other families and parents to develop friendships.

In addition, the Toy Library provides a venue for parents, children and others to interact in a casual, friendly environment.



Quality toys are expensive and can quickly lose their play value. By borrowing toys, parents can save money and provide new stimulation for their children every couple of weeks.



The OGTL is located behind the Bellarine Aquatic & Sports Centre within the Boorai Centre.
