Term and Condition

Privacy Act:  I understand that these details will be added to the Toy Library membership list and used only for toy library business.

Liability Clause:  I assume complete and full responsibility for any and all injuries caused to any person or property which may result in whole or in part from using toys I borrow from this toy library. I also release the toy library from any and all liability of any kind.

Helmet Waiver: The Parklands Toy Library makes bicycles and scooters available to members, however they do not provide protective clothing or bicycle helmets. I acknowledge that the safety of the children using this equipment is my sole responsibility and release the toy library from liability of any kind.

Responsibility Clause:  I understand that all toys borrowed from the toy library remain the property of the toy library at all times.  I undertake full responsibility for any items borrowed and commit to return all items on time and in the same condition they were hired; this means items must be cleaned before return, breakages must be reported, and the cost of repair may be charged, and lost items will be charged $5.00 per piece or the cost of replacement, whichever is greater.

I understand that failure to return the toy library's property after 8 weeks would constitute a complaint of theft to the police.

Rules of Membership:  I agree to abide by the following rules and any subsequent rules notified by the toy library.

  • Failure to do so will result in a charge of $11 per session not completed.

Lost, Broken, Stolen or Irreparably Damaged Toys or Toy Pieces

  • If a toy is lost, stolen or damaged beyond repair, you will be invoiced for a replacement toy. Each case will be dependent on the toy’s age or condition.
