Event Details

Don’t let plastic toys go to landfill, swap them at our Community Toy Swap and extend the joy!

Children love novelty and change, and can outgrow toys quickly! Soon enough families find themselves with a pile of plastic toys their children are no longer interested in. It’s estimated that 80% of toys are made of plastic, and the vast majority of them in Australia (27 million in fact!) sadly end up in landfill.

Together we can reduce the impact in our own locality. Come along to our Community Toy Swap on Saturday September 16th between 9:30am-11:30am.

All you need to do is bring along toys in “good and playable” condition that your kids don’t use anymore and exchange them for toys they will love! Bring whatever you have and take whatever you like, and best of all, it’s FREE.

Left over toys will be donated to Kardinya Toy Library, or Vinnies.

What you CAN’T bring (For legal and liability reasons, we will ask that you do not swap the following items):

  • button battery toys
  • bicycles with chains
  • baby equipment (car seats, baby chairs, baby bottles etc..). But of course baby toys are accepted!

This event is being run in partnership with Waste Education at the City of Melville & Act Belong Commit. By offering families alternatives by swapping toys instead of buying, we decrease the amount of toys that end up in landfill, and teach our children about land care and the beauty of sharing.
