There are new toy rental websites available and it’s becoming a trend. If you cannot afford to buy toys for your kids or know they play with them for a limited time, parents can now rent toys with a plan similar to Netflix.
Various companies now offer temporary toy rentals for as little as $25 – $50 per month. Many have enticing specials to get you signed up now. It allows children to play with toys and then send them back just like with Netflix. The program goes one step further, you can actually buy them just like after a car lease, if your children fall in love.
While some think this is a great idea, others believe it is “gross” to play with toys from unknown sources. Toyconomy.com, Babyplays.com and Toygaroo.comare some of the most popular websites, but surely this may catch on and others will follow.
It seems like a great service, seeing that most toys get put in the closet after very little use. But don’t get too excited, websites for renting out your children will probably not happen for a while!
