When I was asked to do a review for Renting Logo Sets at Pley.com I immediately said yes. My son loves to get mail (what kid doesn’t) and he loves Legos. I had to see what this was all about. Today I am going to share our experience with you.
All my kids have really loved Legos. My older two boys and quite an extensive collection. They played with them up until they were in middle school. When Hobie was born, I did one of the stupidest things I have ever done. I sold a giant bin of the boy’s Legos at a garage sale for $20 dollars! I blame the sleep depirvation from the middle of the night feedings for my ridiculously poor judgement. I thought they had outgrown them and I didn’t want to take up the space for 4-5 years until Hobie got interested. It was only later, when I started buying Legos for Hobie that I realized, I sold probably $1000 worth of Legos for $20! The horror!
We have since then managed to rack up a pretty decent collection but there is one problem. Hobie really likes buying those super cool, super expensive sets but he only likes to put them together once. After that he just dumps them in with all the other miscellaneous Legos. That seems a little crazy to me.
The concept of Pley.com is simple but brilliant. I explained to Hobie that we were going to be borrowing a Lego set from Pley.com for a few days and he could go online and chose one. He really loved looking through all the options and picking one. After we told them which one we wanted, it was delivered within a couple of days. He enjoyed playing with it and then we returned it with free shipping. Such a clever concept! It’s like Netflix for Legos. He loved it so much, he wrote them a thank you note, all on his own, no prompting! That hardly ever happens. He said it was “a blast of fun!” Man, I love that kid! Such a cutie.
Some of the things I loved about Pley-
– It was really fun to see all the possibility of different items to order. They have 300+ sets.
– Memberships start at $19.99 a month. If you bought all those sets it would cost a fortune!
– It is like getting a new toy every time you order. When they are bored with it, return it and get a new one.
– It makes a great gift for the kid who had everything.
– It kept my busy child busy and entertained while I got some work done.
– Did I mention, My kid loves mail!
If you think your child might like this, there is a free trial. Why not check it out? I hope they have “a blast of fun” too.
