I think that toy rental place (run by a couple of expats I believe) has closed it's doors. I cannot verify that thought as I forgot the name. A search of the forum might turn it up though if anybody is really interested.

Try the heartland malls, they have those shops like Kiddy Palace; departmental store or Popular Bookstore carries toys at reasonable price too :)

I think the toy rental club referred to is located at Pasir Panjang www.toyrentalclub.com

I just rented a balance bike from them not too long ago, they have scaled down their operations but still around.

You may want to look out for the twins plus annual garage sale, they have a huge number of second hand toys for sale, but it's usually in oct and you have to go early for good buys. otherwise, search online for mummy forums or classifieds, I usually find good buys there for second hand toys.
