My Play Kit is a toy and book rental service that delivers quality, educational toys to your door! Kits include handpicked, gender-neutral toys, games, puzzles and books suited to the developmental stage your child is at or is heading towards. Kits are also available to buy as well as hire.
The kits are designed by a mum and early educator. They are prepared so that they match the skills that your little one will be working on developing. During the first year of life your little one will be developing skills very quickly. We have designed these kits to get progressively more difficult every month – what is too difficult one month, may be just what they need the following month. To accommodate for this we have broken down the kits into monthly increments. Once your child has turned two years old they are able to work on mastering different skills over a longer period of time, so we have grouped the kits into 6 month increments. As a Subscriber or Member, you would still get a kit to explore and learn from each month.

After a month, pack up the kit and we will organise for it to be picked up and a new one delivered.
HOW IT WORKS
IN OUR KITS
A variety of toys, books, games and/or puzzles thoughtfully hand-picked with the developmental needs of your child in mind.
An Age/Stage card outlining the developmental milestones that your child should be working towards for the age/stage they are at. However, all children develop at their own pace so these milestones are a guideline only. They are written in either 3 month or 6 month increments, which allows your child enough time to learn a new skill, practise it and then master it. It is important that children are given enough time to master skills before moving forward.
Tips 4 Toys cards. These offer a few suggestions on how to use the toys provided depending on the stage your child is at. The tips are broken into easy to understand Developmental Skills (see our Child Development Page for more)
Reading aloud to your little one not only helps build vocabulary, stimulates imagination, and improves communication skills, but also builds your relationship by providing a great opportunity for cuddling and bonding.
The Bookworm Bookstore offers an entertaining selection of storybooks chosen by an educator and mother of four. This is a great way to build up your own library of loved books that your little one will keep going back to for years.
If you are simply looking for a new toy for your little one, you are now able to just add it to the cart, and purchase it directly from us. This new Toy Store is open now, and new toys will be added periodically, so be sure to check back in with us,
