To Rent Or Buy
It’s 18 months ago since I became a first time mum and time has literally flown by. Along with time so has money; spent on toys to keep my little one learning. All of a sudden my house was transformed with colour and toys and I was quickly running out of space.
With space issues and toys that no longer amused, I asked myself the question whether there was an alternative to simply buying new toys, as my buying was getting a little uncontrollable, I just wanted my daughter to have the best opportuntiy to learn and develop through play. I could have continued each week calling into Tesco or the Early Learning Centre picking up new toys that would keep her entertained, but the money in my purse would have soon dried up. Would a rental model for toys work like it has for films? Could Parents, Carers, Grandparents or any other child carer grasp the concept of renting toys instead of buying them?
My first thought was that surely I could find somewhere to rent toys online, but to my surprise nothing existed in the UK market. Toyboxlive.co.uk was born and it has taken 6 months to get the website to where it is now. I’m hoping that the UK public will see the value in renting toys instead of buying. For me there’s so many benefits, no unnecessary clutter, save money, keep your toys changing to encourage development, no unnecessary waste and no more pestering for new toys whilst you are out shopping.
Toyboxlive.co.uk makes toy rental and childcare easy and I hope you will join us on our journey.
I’m going to be keeping this blog updated with the latest toys and reviews of toys that will be available from http://www.toyboxlive.co.uk. Im also looking forward to hearing of the adventures of the toys from our customers which I will also post on here. Happy Toy Renting
