Cleaning Toys

Please CLEAN AND DRY each toy before returning them so the next borrower can loan clean toys. This stops the spread of germs and keeps our toys looking smart and presentable. Making sure your toys are dry before packing them back in the box is just as important as cleaning them.

Thank you for maintaining and treating our toys with care so that they last for many years to come.


Plastic Toys

Wash the toy with warm water and a tiny amount of soap or washing detergent.

Please wipe these toys thoroughly with a damp cloth and pat dry.

Leave in the sun to dry, or dry with a clean tea towel.

Alternatively, you can use a tiny amount of vinegar diluted in water or diluted disinfectant. Use this if your child has been ill.


Wooden Toys and Puzzles

Never soak wooden toys as this damages them. Use a damp cloth with the same cleaning solution as above and wipe over the toy or puzzle.


Blocks, Duplo, Lego, MegaBloks

Place blocks in a bucket with warm soapy water and leave to dry on a clean tea towel.

We do not recommend you put blocks in the dishwasher as this can lead to damage and deterioration.


Outdoor Toys

This includes play gyms, slides, rollercoasters, water tables and accessories.

These must be well cleaned, as they can be susceptible to mould. Rinse under a high-pressure hose or wipe down with soapy water.

Please clean and dry each water table and water table accessory carefully.


Ride-ons including Cozy Coupes

Wipe these down with a slightly damp cloth with soapy water or disinfectant.

Please do not leave ride-on toys outside in the rain or hot sun.


Baby Toys

Do not immerse these in hot water as they can get ruined. Wipe down with hot water and vinegar or disinfectant. Dry thoroughly.
