Anyone ever heard of this? You can rent toys online and then give them back and rent more. What do you think about sanitation? What do you think about the whole thing in general? You can rent 6 toys for $32. And apparently keep them for a month, and then you have the option to buy.
I personally think it's cool and weird at the same time.

I wish we had a toy library out here. I'm going to have to check that out. It really does sound kind of neat. New stuff, they get sick of it, then they can pick out something else.

I use a toy library here but not on line.... We get fined if the toys aren't clean and they sanitize them works great love it

I think it's cool. J's had so many toys that he ABSOLUTELY LOVED....for a week. Then he couldn't be bothered to look at it. Ours get donated, but I know a lot of families without as much free time just toss them in the trash and off to the landfill they go. I hate that! I think this is a great idea to reduce waste and perhaps cut back on production.

They still get the joy of the toy, but we don't have to feel bad if they only love it for a week :)

We had a toy hire place where I used to live, it was great for larger items like outdoor equipment or bigger ticket items etc. I used it a few times to see if Issy would be interested in a certain thing before I purchased it.

My kids don't even play with toys per se... more like sand and the recycling and my kitchen stuff.
