Toybrary Austin was created to provide a positive, clean, welcoming environment in which children, parents, and teachers can interact and learn. Owner Liza Wilson has worked in education for the past 20 years, in settings from public school to Montessori to the French education system.  She also spent several years supervising student teachers and first year teachers, as well as working for Head Start. She is a very proud aunt to Jack, Emily, Caroline, and Joe. Toybrary Austin stocks beautiful, high-quality, educational toys for children ages 6 months through 5 years old. Many older children and parents can be found enjoying our more challenging toys and games as well.

Our space is divided into sections: a play area for kids, shelves of toys for checkout, and an enclosed room for birthday parties, parenting classes, children’s classes, and other events. Meet a friend at Toybrary Austin and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while your children play in the play area. Then pick some toys to check out and take home. Drop-in for our many special events, including Staci Gray concerts, puppet shows, teddy bear picnics, balloon twisting, story time, and even moms’ nights out!

 

Come play!

A toy library operates much like a book library, only the items available for loan are toys, making it possible for parents to offer their children age-appropriate toys at each developmental stage without having to spend a lot of money or have a ton of storage space. We have over 1200 toys available for checkout, so come check us out!
