Toy rentals are an option this holiday season

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Many of you pay to trade in movies each month--why not trade those toys while you're at it?

Online, we came across "Toygaroo." I guess you could call it the Netflix of the toy world.

Here's how it works: you sign up, choose a plan and pay a monthly fee. One play allows you to get six toys every other month. And, you get to choose from a variety of toys. Sound like a good deal? We asked around.

"I think it's a pretty sweet idea because we spent lots of money on toys and they just sit there," said Tim Jonas.

After talking to parents a bit more though...the parents came up with some concerns. Germs being one of them.

"Maybe you get a kid with a cold or something that sent a toy in," said parent Megan Morris.

Toygaroo, however, has a three step sanitization process that includes heating the toys to 212 degrees. But still, parents are a bit skeptical. Some might give it a shot--others flat out say "no."

It appears renting movies is one thing...renting toys is another.
