Thing That Should Happen: Toy LibrariesPosted: March 5, 2014
As I passed the library this morning on my walk to work I thought, “It would be great if the library also lent toys.” What we don’t need in a small apartment (or even if we lived in a huge house) is a bunch of unplayedwith toys in a box/on a floor/under a couch/jammed in a closet taking up space. We could play with them for 14 or 21 days and give them back to the library! Which has lots of space! And we can renew the ones we like!
Turns out my idea isn’t even a little original:
Or, for a fee, you can rent toys:
There are other local rental companies in the United States, and this option is available worldwide. This Travel Mamas post has a comprehensive list.
Maybe we’ll try one out …
