Give Lightly – Kids toy & clothing swap – FREE!

With Christmas coming up, not only are we feeling busy – we’re also concerned about the outgoing costs of buying Christmas presents. A toy & clothes swap is a great way to extend the life of these items, save you money and resources by swapping rather than buying new.

Plus you get to pass on some of those much loved, or unused toys & clothes, while picking up some “new” ones that your little one can enjoy at little to no cost. Everyone wins. Your children get some new playthings for Christmas while saving you money and the environment’s resources are protected!

Golden rule: Only bring toys you’d be happy giving to a friend. No broken, damaged or dirty toys past their play-by date accepted.


  1. Bring up to 5 toys or articles of clothing 
  2. Hand over your 5 items at the check in table where they will be sorted and set up for the swap
  3. Collect your  tokens.
  4. Once all items are checked in, the tables are opened and you can claim new toys with your tokens!


  1. Check in toys from 10 – 10.15 am.
  2. Swap will START at 10.30 once all the items are set up.
  3. This event is for toys and clothing suitable for children 12 years and under.
