A great idea has come to the Choice City: the opportunity to "rent" games, toys, puzzles, and more, to entertain the family.

Every Colorado family has a shelf or two of games that they no longer play; a shelf of puzzles that they've put together "way too many" times; and a storage area full of toys that don't get played with.

How about a place where you could check out those things, just like at the library? It would make it easier to see if you like that toy/game and make it easier to introduce the family to new fun.

Soon, you might hear parents or kids saying that they have to head over to "The TGP," to pick something up.

What will it be, this week? That one game they've been wanting to check out? That puzzle they saw last time and want to give a shot? Maybe that doll that Sara had her eye on.
