Just when you thought you heard it all, there is an online toy rental store that allows you to become a member, rent toys and then if your child really likes the toys you can buy them for a discount.
This can save you money and time. I know I have spent lots of money on toys only to find out that my children have more fun with the box the toy came in than the actual toy.
At first I was questioning how kids would react to the fact that their toys were rented but when you think about it, they play with the toys for a limited time and then have the option to get new ones the next month or so. This is pretty cool especially for the family who is on a limited budget. No need to spend your savings on toys if you don’t want to. There is a resource you can check out called Toygaroo seen on Shark Tank, Nate Berkus and abc7.
