My boys love getting new toys! Of course! Who doesn’t? But a couple of days later, that new toy isn’t new anymore and it ends up at the bottom of the toy chest or buried on the shelves. And while I love to buy educational toys, they can be so expensive. That’s why I’m so excited by TOYconomy.com, a new toy rental site.
TOYconomy was started by a mom who was frustrated by toy clutter and expense. There are so many great products out there, but many parents are reluctant to add one more toy to the house. Or they think an educational toy would be a great way to teach a particular concept, but they can’t justify spending the money. TOYconomy solves both of these problems by allowing parents to rent age-appropriate (clean!) toys from the convenience of their home. New toys arrive within 3-8 days with a pre-paid shipping label that makes returns easy and hassle-free. Keep your toys for 30 days and then either return it for something new or renew your rental for another period of time. And, if you child simply cannot part with the toy you have, you even have the option of purchasing the toy at the end of the rental period. How great is that?
