Merry Go Round

Our new contact free online toy library service is now live!

Register as a member then book and pay for toys online. Collect and return to Merry Go Round Toy Library based in Exeter Scrapstore in Belmont Park.

We are open every Tuesday throughout the year for families, groups or individuals who look after children aged from a few months into early teens.

Currently you can’t come into the building when we are open, but we hope play sessions will return in the future.

We have a wide selection of good quality toys, games and resource books for hire, and are happy to offer help and advice about meeting the needs of individual children. We also have larger inclusive toys suitable for groups.

More toys can be borrowed for special events such as parties, join on the website then contact us to increase the number of toys you can borrow .

How Much Will It Cost?

  • Family membership: £6 per year
  • Group membership: £15 per year

There is a weekly fee for each item borrowed. Rates start at 50p for cheaper toys and resource books. More expensive toys cost from £1.20 per week.

We make no charge for breakages, but do ask for toys to be thoroughly cleaned before return.

We then quarantine toys for a minimum of 72 hours before cleaning them again.
