​At Mr Kipp and little Jimmy we like to make it easy for you, we know life is busy enough. If you happen to live in or near Ballarat (lucky you) we hire our toys on a month to month basis.  There is no joining fee and no minimum hire. Also available for one off events like parties or photo shoots!

We have a free local pick up and drop off point. Skin Ski and Surf. 94-96  Bridge Mall Ballarat. Check out the Toy hire range here or email  if you'd like to arrange to hire some toys! Please note that not all toys for sale a for hire!

Wooden toys do last a long time but there is no doubt they are more expensive! Which is why hiring them makes so much sense, especially as children often tire of toys within months!

The idea to start a wooden toy hire business came about because of my own frustration. My eldest was born 10 days before Christmas and getting all his toys together, became bored of them by mid year. I felt an unease with the cheap plastic toys I was buying to fill that gap and I didn't want to join my local toy library for a whole year- just a toy here or there when I wanted it!



Keep your child entertained for longer than 5 minutes with our quality wooden toys that won't cost the earth!
