Toy Library

About

Kits House has made available our collection of toys appropriate for children aged 0-6 years. We invite the community to borrow these toys as a part of our commitment toward reducing waste and building community connections.

Lending procedure

  • Toys can be lent through the front door of the Community Hall at Kitsilano Neighbourhood House, please enter from steps facing 7th Ave, follow all posted health and safety guidelines. If any participant is found to be purposefully ignoring guidelines or disrespectful to lending staff and volunteers, they will no longer be welcome to participate and $10 fee will not be returned.

 

All toys will be sanitized before lending out

  • All items will be lent only after sanitizing, and inspecting for damage. Toys will only be lent in working condition.

 

Follow all posted health and safety guidelines. 

If you or your child are currently experiencing any flu or cold like symptoms, please do not visit until symptoms have subsided.
