A new toy library business in Laramie lets children check out a group of toys and then exchange them for different toys two weeks later. Just like a traditional library, The Nest Toy Library helps parents provide new and interesting items without having to buy them.
Rhianna Handschu, who owns The Nest, said people sign up for memberships based on the number of toys they want to receive in each pickup – three, five or eight. The Nest has an online listing of all its available items, and parents select from there. On scheduled swap days, parents pick up the new toys they reserved and drop off the items they checked out two weeks before.
