I recently found about Smartyrents.com. Smartyrents.com is a website that works along the idea of netflix or gamefly. The difference is, it’s all educational games for your little ones educational game systems. They rent out games for: Leapster, V.smile, Didj, V.motion, Clickstart, V.smile baby, V.Flash, and Little Leaps.
I wish I would have had this when my kids had a V.smile a few years ago. My kids would see new games and say “mom can we get that one!” I’d buy it only for them to be bored with it in a month or two. Or another issue was I’d buy it and it just wasn’t what I thought it would be. While the games for most of these educational systems are relatively inexpensive, Smartyrents.com is an easy way for your kids to try them. One thing I like about Smartyrents.com is, if your little one really likes the game, you can use their “love it” feature which allows you to buy the game at a reduced price. If they don’t like the game, just send it back and they will send you the next game in the “your game” list.
There are several packages to choose from:
1 game at a time for $9.99/mo
2 games at a time for $14.99/mo
3 games at a time for $19.99/mo
4 games at a time for $24.99/mo
The multiple packages are great for families with several children that have say, the personal Leapsters, and they each want their own game.
You get to keep the game for as long as you want. Keep it for a week or a year. just pay the monthly subscription fee of the package you choose. Don’t forget that you can take advantage of the “love it” feature to buy it at a reduced cost if your little one just can’t part with the game.
Shipping is FREE. Both to and from. When you receive your game(s) you will also be sent and prepaid return mailer to send it back when you’re ready.
Smartyrents.com also offers gift certificates.
