Pleygo: Netflix for LEGO

by Hazel Chua

Why buy when you can rent, especially if you don’t have much to spare?

This is true for houses, DVDs, even luxury bags – and now it’s true for LEGO. Sets range in price from a couple of bucks to hundreds of dollars, so if you’re the type who builds a lot but then gets bored with the set after a while, then you might want to consider Pleygo.

PleygoPleygo is a LEGO rental service so you can build to your heart’s content. Think of it as a Netflix-like service for LEGO sets, in case you’re having difficulty understanding the concept.

There are three rental subscription tiers: Fan, Super Fan, and Mega Fan. They go for $15, $25, and $39 a month, respectively. You can get small to medium sets under Fan (up to 250 pieces), large sets (up to 500 pieces) under Super Fan, and up to huge sets (up to 5400 pieces) in the Mega Fan tier. Once you’re all paid up, Pleygo will send your first set to play with.

When you’re done with it, just sent it back to them and they’ll send you another one to have some fun with. They offer free shipping and they don’t charge for lost pieces. And if you’re worried about dirty LEGO blocks, then you’ll be pleased to know that they clean and sanitize the sets in between uses.

You can sign up for Pleygo here, and check out all of their available sets here.
