There are various toy libraries (‘ludothèques’ / ‘speelotheeken’) in Brussels and all over Belgium, where members can borrow toys, puzzles and other games for a small fee.
This can be a great way of giving your child access to a range of safe, age-appropriate toys, or even trying out some toys before you think about buying them.

When are toy libraries open?
Toy libraries typically have professional educators on-site who can answer questions and give advice, and are often only open on Wednesday afternoons and Saturdays.
