So, I'm all about a good deal. I have a 6-year-old son who is obsessed with LEGO (and any other toy he can build) and I spend a FORTUNE buying him new sets to build. A $30 set literally takes him 30 minutes to build...then he's done.
We attended a LEGO expo last month and we found a really awesome company (no pun intended) that rents LEGO sets. They're called Pley (www.pley.com). They described it as the "Netflix for LEGO"...we've been a member for about a month, and my son has already built 3 sets.
We build it, send it back, get another one he wants. So far, the boy is happy, and we've already saved close to $100 (they have a piggy bank that shows how much value you get from renting over buying the sets).
Anybody else ever hear/try this service? I'm curious if this is something that is still a secret, because I really wish I thought of this idea!
Please add any other similar services to save money!!
