Toy Lending Service

Carrickmacross Toy Library promotes play for children aged 0-6 by enabling families to borrow, not buy quality, sustainably sourced toys.

80% of children’s toys end up in landfill or in the sea after being used for an average of six months. Toys are difficult to recycle as they can contain materials that cannot be easily separated.

Carrickmacross Toy Library aims to address this environmental challenge through a sustainable toy lending service. Users can borrow up to four toys, puzzles or games for up to three weeks at a time. Parents pay a small membership fee that goes towards repairing or replacing broken toys.
