I received a three month membership free in exchange for this post. My son is a huge LEGO fan. He eat, drinks, and possibly sleeps LEGOs. A few months ago, we heard about a cool service that allows you to rent LEGOs, much like a monthly movie rental service. With Pleygo, you and your children can play with unlimited LEGO sets per month and not even have to pay for shipping! I know that my son has expensive taste in sets and then takes them apart almost immediately to add the bricks to the community pile. Founder Elina Furman deserves a medal for thinking up this brilliant solution!
Subscriptions to Pleygo start at $15; there are three levels that account for everything from the casual bricklayer to the hard core hobbyist. Pleygo will even give you credit if you send in sets or bricks, not that C would ever allow a piece to go out of his sight. If you have a friend or family member with an upcoming birthday, Pleygo is the way to go with a gift subscription. Hint, hint.
