Play is an essential ingredient in the cognitive, emotional, and physical development of a child. At Toy Loan, we subscribe to the idea that learning and play are one. Toy Loan achieves its mission by sparking creativity and imagination to build the foundation for a life of learning. Toy Loan promotes imagination, exploration, and discovery. Together, educators, caregivers, and children can embark on adventures that challenge and inspire the mind and spirit.
Children learn character-building and citizenship skills by returning the items in good condition and on time. The Program develops a sense of responsibility in children through the observance of an honor code and merit system that gives praise and recognition when toys are returned on time and undamaged.
Toy Loan Centers
Toy Loan Centers are located in parks or recreation facilities, children’s centers, libraries, schools, housing projects, and community service buildings. Each center is unique, but all follow the same basic guidelines.
Toy Loan is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that relies heavily on the generosity of private corporations, individuals, and special interest groups.
Due to a recent fire at our Toy Loan Program headquarters, we are currently unable to accept toy donations. We will update this site once we can resume accepting donations. We thank you for your understanding, patience, and support.
