As a mom whose children had a slight addition to Lego, I know how difficult it can be to stick to a toy budget when your child covets a certain set.  Or ten. Worse still, they assemble it in a day (ok maybe not the Deathstar) and soonafter, the new items get played with and broken.  We’ve just discovered Pleygo, a Netflix-like rental service for Lego sets.

Pleygo is a new service which provides kids and adults unlimited access to the world of Lego at a minimal cost.  By renting and returning Lego sets, parents save money and kids continue to be excited and long for the new set that comes in the mail.  Life skills such as creativity, fine-motor and sequencing are enhanced and I’m willing to bet that my summer tech-timeout challenge will be a tad easier once I subscribe! There are plans for Unlimited Lego sets for 3, 6 or even 12 months.
