Toy rental – a relatively new concept in Singapore – allows cash-strapped parents to rent toys for a limited time, at a fraction of the retail price.
Since children tend to outgrow their toys quickly, and toys clutter up the home, it makes perfect sense to rent rather than buy. When the novelty wanes off, simply return it and lease another one!
You can rent a simple toy for as little as a few dollars, or a big play house for less than a hundred. Parents also enjoy great variety, from popular brands like Fisherprice, Vtech, Playskool, Little Tikes and Evenflo.
Independent online reviews are available to help parents make informed decisions of their selection. Online selection also relieves the in-store shopping stress (especially with excitable children in tow) and enhances the overall shopping experience.
Play is an integral part of a child’s life; and toys help stimulate creativity, hone hand-eye coordination, psycho-motor skills, develop spatial sense and bring great joy.
Whilst playthings are important, they need not necessarily be expensive.
So, the next time you see a costly toy you think your kids would love, instead of buying it brand new, why not consider renting it instead?”
