Do the toys come with batteries?

All toys that require them are provided batteries by Kidz Play.


Whose responsibility is it to clean the toys?

Responsibility is with both Kidz Play and yourself. We like to have the toys clean and checked before you take them. It helps us with the cleaning if we receive them back clean.


Am I held responsible if a toy is broken?

If it is clearly through wear and tear then, 'No'. If a toy has been broken accidentally the item will be sold to you.

This is not a problem if you ring and arrange with Kidz Play.

Can I pre-book?

Absolutely, no fees apply but we do expect toy items to be picked up.

Does Kidz Play pick up or deliver?

Yes, by arrangement. Please note that there will be an additional charge.


What happens if we lose some of the toy's pieces?

Unfortunately, this can happen. You will be charged a $5.00 missing piece fine but this will be refunded to you when the piece is found and returned.


Will I be fined if I am late in returning toys?

No, we just charge normal fees for the extra days or weeks of use.
