welcome

Welcome to the Carlson Toy Library. We are a not for profit charitable trust who exist primarily to let children play!

We have a large range of over 1500 toys including ride ons, dolls houses, theme sets such as Thomas the Tank Engine, Duplo, Infant and toddler toys, games, puzzles, role play toys and dress ups.

Play is recognised as being hugely important in childrens development. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) published a study in 2006 entitled: "The Importance of Play in Promoting Healthy Child Development and Maintaining Strong Parent-Child Bonds". The report states: "free and unstructured play is healthy and – in fact – essential for helping children reach important social, emotional, and cognitive developmental milestones as well as helping them manage stress and become resilient"

Our aim as a toy library is to ensure all children can access and benefit from the joy of play.
