    Rent a Toy?

    We came across this Singapore website where we can rent toys.

    Does anyone know if they have something similar here in HK?

    The Central Library in Causeway Bay has a Toy Library. Not sure how it works. Couldn't find any info on their website. Anyone been?

    When we went to the toy library, they allow us to check out two toys max in the 45 minutes period that you are signed up to play in the library. However, I don't think they allow you to check it out to take home.

    HKfornow is correct - can't take the toys away with you.
    Not aware of any toys for rent in HK - can't see the demand for it.

    Toy Liabrary have to be made appointment, otherwise you will only watch others play (like me). It's free and allow 1 kid with two adults and each session is 45 minutes.

    The first time I brought my son to Toy Library on weekend, I was on waiting list 48. I then asked for the next session, but it was on 23. The register advised us to book appointment beforehand and it allows one week advance booking. However, I have never succeeded to be answered by the booking number.

    I finally visited there once when I was on leave on a weekday. It's fun, but 45 min was just warm-up. So try weekdays if you are not working mom.

    One important thing is to wear socks.
