WHY HIRING TOYS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE!

WHY HIRING TOYS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE!

WHY HIRING TOYS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE!

The idea to start a wooden toy hire business came about because of my own frustration. My eldest was born 10 days before Christmas (clearly I didn’t think that though). Getting all his toys at the same time of year he became bored of them by mid-year. Being a builder’s daughter I have always had a love of timber and naturally turned towards wooden toys for him.

Wooden toys do last a long time but there is no doubt they are more expensive! This is why hiring them makes so much sense, especially as children often tire of toys within months! (ok, probably more like weeks)  I think us Parents can all relate to this scenario; Child empties toy box all over the floor plays with one thing for 5 minutes and then calls “Mum, I’m bored, I’m hungry” or just hangs off your leg wanting you to play with them.  As if the lady standing at the sink full of dirty dishes is where you go to have a great time!

So even if your child isn’t born on Christmas day, what are some other great reasons you should hire toys:

  1. Your child doesn’t own many toys. You don’t have a large extended family that live close by that kindly dumps their hand me downs to you! (Yeah, thanks for that really noisy toy Uncle Ted!)
  2. You live in a small apartment and don’t have the room for bulky toys or much storage to keep excess toys away.
  3. Your granddaughter or nephew are coming to stay in the holidays and you have absolutely no toys in your house!
  4. You are travelling Australia in a caravan and can only take a small amount of toys with you. Your child was sick of them by Bunbury!
  5. You are a conscious consumer and aware that millions of toys are sent into landfill every year.
  6. You are a minimalist and refuse to buy unnecessary items that will clutter your Instagram worthy house!
  7. You are a teacher and know that babies brains are programmed to absorb everything they hear, see, taste, touch, etc. However, if they keep touching the same textures and seeing the same toys they loose interest quickly.

It can be a bit confusing when it comes to buying toys for your pre-schooler! When they are older they sure let you know what they must have ,oh about 11 months in advance of their next birthday! With an abundance of colourful toys screaming for your attention at the toy shop and age recommendations that aren't really helpful (heck everything says over 3 years to save their own but!) The best toys are those designed with a focus on what the child can do, rather than what the toy can do.
