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!

​At Mr Kipp and little Jimmy we like to make it easy for you, we know life is busy enough. We hire our wooden toys Australia wide on a month to month basis.  There is no joining fee and no minimum hire. Order your hire toys online and we'll have them delivered straight to your door. We'll give you a heads up before it's time to return. If you would like to hire them for another month it will be at a reduced rate. If you would like to return just simply return in the same box with a packaging label that will be emailed to you for you to print and stick to the box. Shipping cost is $18 at time of placing your toy hire and we'll pick up the return cost. Our carbon neutral delivery company will pick up from your home or work if that's more convenient on the day specified. See FAQ for more info (though I think we've got it covered here :)

If you happen to live in or near Ballarat (lucky you).We have a free local pick up and drop off point. The healthy hub, 100 Bridge Mall Ballarat. 


Keep your child entertained for ages with our quality wooden toys that won't cost the earth!
