How to Keep Kids Toys from Taking Over!

Toyconomy Giveaway

Busy Mom Solution: Toyconomy!

I’ve got a full house around here – My brother and my two nephews are living with me through the summer. That means that Abby will share the Master Bedroom with me for a while longer, until there’s space to put together her “big girl” room. Toddlers get bored with things really quickly, but I just don’t have a room to store a ton of toys. Plus, I hate spending money on new ones, not knowing if they’ll truly engage her and hold her attention, or get tossed back into the toy box and ignored within a week. If you totally know what I mean, then you will LOVE this new Busy Mom Solution – TOYconomy allows you to pick new toys to rent every single month, so that your little ones always have something new and fun to explore – but you don’t have to find space to store a ton of stuff. Perfect, right? So when I got the opportunity to try out this service for a review, I was pretty excited to see how it all works. It sounded like the perfect problem solver for my busy life.

TOYconomy was created by a mom of three, to help families enjoy the value of play without the frustration. Let’s face it, toys can be expensive, they tend to clutter most rooms in your house, and kids lose interest quickly. TOYconomy’s convenient toy rental service provides you a way to reduce clutter, save money, and be eco-friendly all while providing fun and educational toys to your children all year!

TOYconomy Shipment

How it Works:

First, decide whether you want to do a one-time shipment, or sign up as a TOYmember, for added benefits. You can learn more here – {How TOYconomy Works} Then, browse their huge selection of super fun toys, and add your favorites to your cart. They’ll deliver the toys right to your door – along with an amazing Scout Storage Tote for all TOYmembers. {I am in LOVE with this tote!} When it’s time to ship the toys back, you simple pack ’em back up in the same box, stick the shipping label on it, and schedule a pick-up! You keep the toys as long as you’d like, and sending them back is totally free – and so easy!

Abby LOVES her new TOYconomy toys!! This little wiggle dance is her stamp of approval….

Questions you might be asking:

  • Since these toys have been played with already, are they clean? Well, you can see in the picture above, they look like new when they arrive! They use hospital-grade cleaners to ensure that everything is totally safe and ready for your kiddo’s! This company is run by moms – and they understand how important this is. This was the biggest hesitation that I heard when I shared the Toyconomy info with my Mommy Group – but when I showed them the toys, every single mom was impressed by what perfect condition they were in.
  • What if my child LOVES a toy, and I don’t want to send it back? Simple – you can purchase it and keep it! Find details in the FAQ’s. You can also earn TOYbucks from trading in toys that your kiddo’s don’t play with anymore, and use those bucks towards rentals or purchases, making this an even better value. It’s such a great risk-free way to try new toys on a regular basis – and only buy the ones you know they’ll continue to enjoy.
  • What if a toys gets damaged, or we lose a piece? Well, this happened to us! The cute {but very bad!} puppy you see here is Abby’s best buddy in the world. She shares her toys with him all of the time – so he thought that running off with a puzzle piece was ok! I caught him with it, all chewed up – looking guilty as can be, lol. But – when you have TOYsurance, there are no worries! It’s only a super small fee to add it to each order, and if you have an accident like we did, you are totally covered. Read more in the FAQ’s.
  • Do they have a good selection? Um, YES! I didn’t choose our toys, we were just sent a package with an assortment to review. But Abby LOVED them all. I wouldn’t have thought that she was big enough to really enjoy the wooden puzzles, but she spent hours fitting those pieces in and out. I went online to learn more, and sign up for a paid subscription – and I was really impressed with what a wide variety of toys are available. They do a great job of choosing toys that are not just fun, but have value too – lots of cool educational choices. You’ll love it. And it’s easy to search – by type, age group, and more.

  1. Great concept, but I don’t think my children would like having to let go of something. I’d have to research the site a bit more.

    • Shannon McAfee says

      Hi Jillian! That’s an understandable concern. After renting any product, you have the option to purchase for a discounted price (minus your rental fee). We have had quite a few customers purchase after renting, although most return when their kid(s) lose interest. Also, as a TOYMember, you can hold on to products as long as you like!

      • Sunshine and Sippy Cups says

        Thanks so much for answering her questions Shannon! And you know, for myself with a toddler – she loses interest in things so quickly, I LOVE the idea of swapping out for new toys every few weeks. I don’t think most kids will miss the toys too much when they know they’re getting something new soon to take it’s place :)

  2. Jennifer Johncock says

    I like that I can switch out toys whenever is convenient for me!

  3. Christy Ann says

    I love that I can get lots of new toys often. My son has a 2 minute attention span for toys, and then they are ignored. We have too many toys already to keep buying more!

  4. I love how you can just rent instead of buying right away.

  5. Tara Berke Torres says

    What a great lending system!

  6. I like that they have newly released toys like the LeapPad. It’s a great way to test out a toy before making the purchase.

  7. I like that it’s convenient & easy to use!!

  8. Jessica Carnaggio says

    I like that rental prices start at $1.99.

  9. I’d love the leapfrog for my son

  10. Thanks for the giveaway! :)
