At Tuf-Tuf toy library in Utrecht, you can borrow toys to help your child play without limitations. Our toy library loans toys to children with a developmental delay, chronic illness, or disability. Tuf-Tuf toys are specially selected for these children. Their brothers and sisters can also make use of these services, thus enabling them to play together.
Playing is important
Children learn through playing. So, playing is not just fun, it is also very important for their development. It helps children to learn to walk and ride a bike, for example, but also teaches them how to deal with emotions. Playing is also very important for language development.

- borrow toys your child can enjoy playing with despite their disability;
- try out which toys are suitable for your child
- borrow resources for speech therapy, physiotherapy, or ergotherapy;
- have fun playing with new toys.
