I’m pretty sure this happens to all moms, all the time: the kids want, need, must have a toy, so you break down and buy it. Two days later, they don’t want it anymore. Please tell me I’m not alone in this! That’s why I like the idea of this site I found called Toyconomy.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t buy every toy my kids ask for. But it irritates me to no end when they get toys, play with them for a few days, and then want another new one. This is the point that Toyconomy comes in. Toyconomy allows you to rent, that’s right RENT, toys for your kids!
I could explain the process, but this picture says it all:
You have have two choices on how to rent toys with TOYconomy: you can rent as you go or sign up for a TOYMembership.
If you rent as you go, youÂ sign up to rent as you go and then you are free to just “click and rent” any items that you like for the rental price shown plus a flat shipping fee of $8.99 per order.
Pro: This option has no monthly membership fees. Con: You can only keep the toys for 30 days (they do allow extra time for shipping.) Bonus: You have the option to purchase any toy you have rented for a discount minus your rental fee.
AÂ TOYMembership is only $1.00 for the first month to sign up.Â After that, you pay a small monthly membership fee of $9.99 (after your $1 trial month)Â and getÂ 50% off rental fees, free shipping, no minimums, restrictions or due dates.Â You can even earn free rentals!
I think if I decide to do this, I might go for the TOYMembership. You can cancel 60 days after your start date, so really it’s not too expensive to try out. I bet you have more questions, and all of my questions were answered in the Toyconomy FAQs section of their site!
