About MiBase

We provide digital Management Systems, both cloud and desktop applications to Toy Libraries in Australia and New Zealand. Special discounts for very small Toy Libraries. Mibase is accessible and affordable to Toy Libraries small and large.

Our History

Mibase Desktop was first developed 15 years ago with the help of the Sandringham Toy Library (now called the Bayside Toy Library). After many years of development and input from over 300+ Toy Libraries we can now offer mibase online at an affordable cost to Toy Libraries.

Our Vision

To provide a service to the Toy Library community that will streamline, automate processes and ultimately save valuable volunteer time.

With Mibase now going open source with both the Desktop and online version, our hope is that the open source community will be a vibrant and active place with lots of discussion and many users and developers contributing, all with the aim to improve the way we work in Toy Libraries.


User friendly and fully automated, see how easy it is to process loans.

Dannevirke Community Toy Library

Highlight Project

Dannevirke Toy Library is a small Toy Library in the Manawatu-Wanganui Region of the North Island, New Zealand.

One of our highlights in 2016 was moving Dannevirke Toy Library from a folder of Toy Pictures and a paper based system  to online.

I particularly enjoyed working with Sandy, her positive enthusiasm of the project encouraged me  to write complicated code extracting the toy number and toy name from a folder of Toy Pictures.

500+ toy records and their images where on the server in less than 2 hours!

Comments from Sandy…”Good Morning Michelle Baird
Just want to thank you for all your help setting us up at Dannevirke Community Toy Library.
I am really enjoying using MiBase and am just loading all the DVDs that I had forgotten about earlier. (we kinda just hadn’t ever worried about them before). Easy peasy now!!
So hope you had a lovely Christmas and a wonderful New Years.
Looking forward to an awesome 2017 with MiBase.”
