Rentals

Looking for something fun for your party, classroom, community group, or home learning family?

Our one-week kit rentals are fabulously unique additions to parties for all ages!

We also rent our workshop space for private events and can put together a birthday package for groups of six to twelve. Get in touch with us to learn more about the options.


The Makedo Big Group Kit

Includes saws, screwdrivers, and Makedo screws for 12 to 24 makers! That's one fun party.

We'll set you up with the kit as well as some starter cardboard. All you have to do is bring in the builders, and grab more cardboard if they want to go big. This is a fun activity for people of all ages.

Rental is for one week (Thursday through Wednesday) so you have time to build and enjoy your creation. You will sign a Rental Agreement and pay a Security Deposit, to be returned in full following the return of the kit in good condition.

Makedo is recommended for 4+ with help and 6+ independently. Please note: there are small pieces in this kit so this isn't an activity for small kids who like to test out materials with their mouths.

Please contact us by email at becurious@thelearnary.ca or by phone at 604-215-1145 to book your rental today!

Brain Candy Machine Rental

This fun adaptation of a bubble gum machine is guaranteed to make your party smarter! We fill it with quotes, questions and facts - you and your guests can learn, play games or swap inspirations.

Standard rental is for one week.. Longer periods are possible on request.

Ask us about customizing the contents of the machine.

You will be asked to sign a Rental Agreement and pay a Security Deposit, to be returned in full following the return of the machine in good condition.

To access membership prices, you must be a member in good standing.

The Pathfinders Hydraulic Building Set

Perfect for classrooms or birthday parties. Kids aged 6 and up will have fun learning how hydraulics work and building their own mechanisms. Kit comes with 18 bases, so the set is good for 18 people working on their own projects or more people working collaboratively. Challenges may include lifting and moving an object, making an excavator, making your own tiny Playland, or free form sculptures with moving parts.
