Website lil Loves: Rent A Toy

After taking inventory of your lil one's toy box, it's hard to imagine adding toys to the heaping pile this time of year. How about renting them instead?


The site RentaToy.com allows parents to rent 2-8 toys at a time. When your tot tires of her selection, which she inevitably will, ship them back and a new shipment of goodies will be sent back to you. Prices start at $25 a month and if your child falls in love with a certain item, just log onto your account and purchase it. No need to buy anything she is not interested in — or anything at all!

I know what you're all thinking: What about the germs? Well, when toys enter, exit and return to Rent A Toy, they are inspected, thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, and tested for condition and usability. The site also tests for the following hazards: bacteria, lead, arsenic, cadmium, mercury, bromine, antimony, chlorine, phthalates, and loose magnetic parts, which is more than you can say for your wee one's playthings at home.
