About Us

Who are we?

We are a charity organisation that promotes the importance of play and its value to a child’s development. We offer a number of services all dedicated to this mission including; Toy Hire, Stay and Play Sessions*, Party Packages, and Intergenerational Play Sessions.

The Toy Library was established in May 2000 as Crich Millennium Toy Library with the intention of providing a local resource where families could attend weekly Stay and Play Sessions, and borrow toys to take home etc. Or as we monikered it Stay, Play and Take Away. From March 2020 Toy Hire is only available via Click & Collect or Click & Browse 

DTL promotes the value of play and is an excellent source of information for the local community providing age appropriate toys and activities from birth to 99 (our oldest member is actually 105). We are also able to offer support to local businesses and events through the provision of resources and play sessions.
