The obvious benefit to renting toys is that it gives children the opportunity to try new toys and experience new interests in play without the commitment of storing large amounts of toys in the home. It also opens a unique chance to own less toys, if that is appealing to your family. Research and experience shows that children play better with fewer toys. Sometimes when there are too many options, children can become overwhelmed. For this reason we always rotated toys in our home. This allowed our children to be focused in play, and for us to respond to their interests as they developed by choosing toys to rotate in as other types of play ran their course. Renting toys gives families the option to own less toys, and supplement with rented toys in rotation, as the space required isn't always feasible. There are many facets to the benefits of toy rental depending on your unique situation.
