Toy Rental Companies in India

Like in other places,Toy Rental Companies are only starting out in India and most are in the startup phase and mostly serve single cities though some are planning to expand through the franchise model.Most Toy Rental Companies charge a Registration Fee,Deposit Fee Plus a Monthy Fee.This can come to anything between Rs 1500-3000 as the first payment which is similar to outside.I think India has a better chance of Toy Rentals becoming more successful because the culture here is more adjusted to the concept of sharing toys and  stuff with cousins.
