Spinning Top

Currently both toy libraries are CLOSED due to coronavirus. See our facebook page for daily posts of arts and crafts activities to help keep children entertained during the lockdown. Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you in the future.

Spinning Top Toy Library is another branch of Merry Go Round, based in Beacon Heath in the Beacon Centre. It opened in March 2018 and has toys, games and resource books for children from a few months into school age.

Current Carousel members can transfer membership to either Merry Go Round in Exeter Scrapstore or Spinning Top.
