Both of my sons went through phases where they were obsessed with Legos. My younger son still enjoys putting them together, but he stopped asking for them for Christmas and birthdays when he realized how expensive they were (yes, for those of you with younger children, they do eventually learn to appreciate how much things cost!) and that they lost a lot of their appeal after he finished putting the set together.
The modern sets are a far cry from the bucket of bricks I used to play with as a child. They now come with complex instructions and a wide array of tiny, mechanical pieces that allow parts to move and propel objects. Assembling one of these kits is like solving an intricate puzzle and is exciting and fun for kids who enjoy that type of challenge. And while the completed pieces are fun to play with for a little while, moving them about and launching whatever projectiles came with them, once they are assembled most of the fun is over and the challenge complete. You now have a very bulky and expensive toy collecting dust on a shelf in your child’s room.
Enter Pleygo. Co-founded by a mom who shares our frustration, Pleygo is a way for your child to enjoy all the excitement of putting together a Lego set and play with it until he or she is bored with it, for a fraction of the price of buying the set at the store. You see, it’s a Netflix-like service for Legos. Once you subscribe to Pleygo, you can rent, play and exchange an unlimited number of Lego sets every month! And remember that one of the founders is a mom so the sets are sanitized every time they are returned. Before you start hyperventilating over how expensive it must be to ship the Legos back and forth, I should probably mention that shipping is always free both ways.
Pleygo has three subscription levels starting at just $15 so that you can find the plan that is best for you. All plans include unlimited sets, the difference in the subscription levels is the size of the Lego sets available to you. They offer you credit for Legos that you donate and they’ll send you a shipping label to make it easy to send the sets or bricks to them!
