Ludothèque Ixelles

The Ludothèque in Ixelles is a wonderful space where preschool kids can play and rent toys. This place is for kids 0-5 years old

There are different corners, like a kitchen and a little house

There are lots of trains and little cars…

…several costumes…

…and a tiny slide!

There are also Duplos and puzzles

You can borrow toys and cardboard games. It’s a great idea to see whether the kids would like a toy before buying it or to change things up a bit. There are also all kinds of baby toys

The cool thing about cardboard games is they are categorized by age and all have a sticker with the languages they support. It makes choosing one so much easier!

It makes for a fun day out with a baby or a toddler. This place is for kids 0-5 years old
