About Our Toy Library

At Dancing Bear Toys, we believe that play and learning go hand in hand.

Our mission is to foster a community of healthy, happy, and curious kids.

We know that supporting educators is essential to that mission, which is why we made a free toy library for teachers!


How does it work?

We’ve created a library of over twenty-five educational toys for classroom use.

Educators can check out one of our demo toys free of charge.  We’ll give them detailed instructions and a sample mini-lesson aligned with Common Core Standards so they can hit the ground running.

When they return the toy, they’ll get a 20% coupon to Dancing Bear.

Most of our toys are geared toward small groups of students.  They’re perfect for centers or enrichment activities.

Right now this program is only available at our Asheville location.  Stay tuned for expansions!
