Toy Movable Database

The Toy Movable Database contains information about the titles in LAPL's Toy Movable collection. "Toy Movables" are books that feature pop-up, movable and other “play element” books.

The Toy Movable collection is available by appointment only, to be used in-house for research purposes. These items do not circulate outside the library.

To schedule a Toy Movable appointment, please email children@lapl.org and include your name, phone number and item number(s) of title(s) requested and/or a brief description of your research topic. A librarian will contact you to set up an appointment within 2 business days.
