Pley is a LEGO rental subscription service, like Netflix for Lego Sets! My son adores building so I thought I’d try it out. Most of the friends I have polled on this service are quite baffled – why would you want to do rent them, why wouldn’t you buy them, they’d be afraid they’d get mixed in. Those are all totally valid questions but I would class us in the likes Legos, not a maniac category, so we liked this subscription.
The items come in a self-sealing return envelope.
Inside a mesh bag.
All the pieces to the set, plus a card noting that the set is complete, and the instructions. The book was heavily worn, as were the teepee items (our first set was a Lone Ranger set), but the rest was in excellent condition.
Whoops, I already lost a piece.
I had a lot of fun building this set with my little guy, and the kids played with it for hours.
I took this one in the middle of the build.
You can purchase the sets if you just have to have them – this Comanche Camp set is $23.99. I think it’s more fun to build it, play with it, and return it.
There are 3 different plans, and I chose the $9.99 plan. Shiping is free and I thought the set arrived quickly even though I don’t get expedited shipping as part of my plan. I’d want to subscribe for a few more months to see if we were interested in the $20 per month plan, but to be honest, we’re really busy, I’m not too interested in seeing how many sets I can get out of this plan. I would be more inclined to subscribe to bigger plans if I could have more than one set out a month, but I guess you could have a couple $10 plans if you wanted to try that out!
