Toys, Books for kids, etc. are a few things which we all buy for our children when they start holding and understanding the world. Toys not only make children to visualize things but also become a part of their daily life without which they cannot live. As kids grow up, the toys become useless as they lose interest. Generally, these toys are passed on to younger kids. However, buying toys are a costly business. Not everybody can afford costly toys in India, so how about renting Toys? Though not very common in India, if you are ok to get a second-hand toy which kids can play for a while and then get a new one, then you need to try Rent Toys.

If you are worried about Toys sanitation and cleanliness, then here is what Rent Toys do to make sure the toys are checked and cleaned before they are sent to someone else. They sanitize and cleans all the toys with a 3-step process. First, all the toys except wooden toys are steam cleaned at 100 degree Celsius to kill germs and bacteria. Then, a kid-friendly disinfectant solution (by Chicco or Clorox), is used to thoroughly sanitize the toys. Finally, toys are blow-dried, shrink-wrapped, and packed. Wooden toys are directly cleaned using a wipe soaked in the disinfectant solution. Wood possesses natural antibacterial properties; hence they are safer and do not need steam cleaning.
