Rent-a-Toy, the first step in giving your child endless play opportunities. Play is our brain’s favourite way of learning and gives children a chance to practice what they learn. The art of play is said to be the basis of early child development. Through the art of play, using sounds, colours, textures and shapes, children develop not only mentally but physically too. Rent-a-Toy is South Africa’s first toy library and is owned and run by moms. Only a parent can understand the frustration at spending their hard earned cash on the latest toys - educational or not - for their little darlings to have them clutter the home, outgrow them or lose interest in them within weeks, if not days. Rent-a-Toy has developed a solution, one not only your children will love, but one that your pocket will too! By only stocking well designed, safe, durable educational toys manufactured by market leaders, we are able to provide your child with the variety your child needs for optimal development during play. It's simple, we only supply toys we would let our children play with in the knowledge that not only are they having fun, but they are safe doing so! What better way to not only save money but to watch your children's delight with a box of new toys each month?
