Loaning our equipment

To start lending, you will need to register first, which you can do here. It's free to join but if you prefer to browse first before signing up, you can that too.

Equipment is available to hire at no cost, for four weeks. You can loan three items at a time. There is also an option to have one item reserved for next time.

Items are only to be used indoors unless otherwise stated. Where needed, instructions on how to use the equipment will be sent via email or will be available at the reservation point.

If you are a school, nursery or other care provider, it is now possible for you to use our Lending Library too. For more details on how to set up an account with us, please email Leila@gympanzees.org.

Delivery and Pick-up service (Tuesday only)

Tuesday Delivery Service
We are changing an extra fee of £5.00 (£2.50 each way) for every additional item loaned. This is due to the increase in petrol prices and to cover our volunteer fuel expenses.
For example
Visual box = standard delivery of £10 
Visual box and whizzy dizzy - standard delivery + extra item £5 = £15
Visual box, whizzy dizzy and hammock - standard delivery + 2 extra items - £20 

This service is only available to families within the BS (Bristol) postcodes. We charge a small fee of £10 (£5 each way) to cover the cost of delivery and collection. Delivery costs may increase or decrease depending on demand for this service.

Once you have reserved your item, we will send you an email with a PayPal link to complete your reservation. 

With the support of Mothers Union, we can waiver the delivery fee for those who may be struggling financially. Please do get it touch to discuss how we can help.  


Collection and drop-off service (Wednesday only)


A FREE collection and drop-off service is available to anyone living in Bristol or its surrounding areas. You must place your reservation first - clicking on the Wednesday collection service.
