They have them in the Royal Babies & Tots Nursery. There is a binder of options and you can check out a bag of your choice, I think there were 9 options. Ours had a little piano, a fisher price wallet, a musical stacking toy and some drums (the "music" set). It was great for our little one so we kept it all week. You could exchange it though, if you wanted and others were not lent out. They were due back at 10 pm on the last night. It comes in a blue mesh bag and there is a laminated picture of the contents so you can make sure you aren't missing pieces.

No racetrack at CocoCay though they did have an Adventure Ocean drop-off point "Where the racetrack used to be"

There are still some Fisher Price type things - little people on the walls, some little people activity books/menus/etc.

Our kids (19 mos and 4 years) had a wonderful time in the kids club. They were great.

My son is 2 1/2 (will be 2 months from 3 when we go). Do they have toys for his age?

Hmm adventure doesn't have a nursery so I wonder if the toys will still be available.

Curious to see what programs will be added as a result - we like doing activities with DD.

The music pack we got could work and a few others. But mostly geared toward the under 2. Good news is they have so much fun and are so exhausted you barely need toys. Just a few things to get through dinner.

Has anyone been on the FOS or other Royal ship more recently that can let me know if they still do the toy lending? Reservations can only read out the press release that says the fisher price partnership ended, but has no information on whether there is still some form of toy lending/sharing on board. It would be handy to know before I pack!

We did toy lending on Navigator last week. I'd read in here to go to the nursery when it opens as the bags go fast, so that is what we did (plus I needed to reserve nursery time). They had a big "catalog" of toy packs that DH looked through while I figured out the nursery hours. The bag they leant us had lots of toys in it (train set, blocks, piano, maybe a few other things?) and was great for keeping our 1yo and 3yo happy while we were in the room. Great feature!

Do you know if they ran out of toys to lend?

My screen name is vbchristy on other sites I have a toddler, so cruising is completely different! This means more Disney and less Celebrity (at least until he is out of diapers!)

I just got off the Freedom OTS and they still do toy lending from the nursery. I went on embarkation day because I was told to go asap. They only had 11 bags but they were each big with 5-6 toys each. They have pictures of what is in each bag so you can choose what appeals to your child. I was able to go back a few days in and trade in my bag for a new one no problem. They don't promote the program and from what I could see there were still several bags available at any given time. I was surprised given the number of babies on board. Anyway the toys are great and kept my 1 and 3 year old entertained as well (and saved me suitcase space!)

I am not sure if they ran out. I know they mentioned there were lots of nursery-aged kids on board (which I expected, being thanksgiving week). We didn't go back and try to swap as our girls were happy with the bag we borrowed all week. I'd just read on here to go early (plus I had a few specific nursery hours I wanted to secure).

They also had lots of under-3 type toys in the teen disco on sea days that you could just go play with whenever. Our girls liked this as it gave them a chance to play together and play with new toys.
