Chanakya Toy Library (CTL) is an online and offline toy Library. Basically we provide Educational Toys on rent to our members. In addition to toys, we also have books, puzzles, games, flashcards, charts, CDs which are designed for the overall development of a child as it’s prime motive.
The answer to this is exactly the reverse of the question – “Why should you buy toys, when you can rent them?” There are many benefits in renting vis-à-vis buying. Children outgrow toys very quickly as they grow. Moreover, they love variety and get bored with the same toys. Renting is an economical solution as compared to buying. And our homes, too, don’t have space to stock unlimited toys. Renting toys enables parents to keep their homes clutter-free while also providing a wide range of toys for their kids.
Kids learn while they play. Toys are a great medium for learning, that help children develop life skills and also make them confident and positive. At every growth stage, your child requires different types of toys for developing different skills, like Motor Skills, Hand Eye Co-ordination, Memory, Problem Solving, Reading & Language, Discovery & Learning, Social Skills, Imagination & Creativity. Each toy plays a different role in the growth of your child. We carefully select toys that will help your child develop the right skills at the right age.

Loss or damage is not uncommon and we fully empathize with our members in such events.
