I can have a kitchen fully stocked with hundreds of different things and yet still my oldest occasionally will look at me with a straight face and inform me that there’s nothing to eat. Many kids are the same way with toys. For some children, it isn’t uncommon for today’s hottest toy to be forgotten by next week. Considering what most toys cost, that’s just a shame. Recent studies show that families will spend on average $1000 per child per year on toys. One way to avoid seeing toys just gathering dust on a shelf is to rent them instead of buy them.
Pley is the leading toy rental company. For a monthly fee, members receive unlimited toys (one at a time) delivered directly to their door. There are currently more than 400 toys available. There is a broad selection of toys available to rent, including Sphero BB-8 App-Enabled Droids, Wonder Workshop’s Dash & Dot Robots, and Knex. Pley pays particular attention to LEGOs, carrying over 400 sets including rare and hard to find sets. Pley’s selection is continually changing, in order to keep up with new toy releases, current trends and children’s tastes.
Once a child is finished playing with a Pley toy, the toy is sent back to Pley in prepaid packaging by US Mail. Upon its arrival, the next toy on the child’s Pleylist is shipped out. Before any toy is shipped out to a child it is thoroughly cleaned inside and out in between rentals. If on the off chance a LEGO brick is misplaced or lost, there is no charge for missing pieces. And, in the eventuality that your child falls madly in love with a toy and doesn’t want to return it, you can purchase it at a special price.
Not only does Pley have the potential to help parents save money, it can also reduce clutter and help the environment by lessening the amount of toys that wind up in the garbage. According to Pley, the savings in plastic alone from reduced purchases amounts to at least 240lbs fewer C02 emissions per annum per Pley member.
Pley would be a great holiday gift, whether it be for a whole year or just a month or two.
Do you know a child that Pley would be a great choice for?
I think this is an awesome idea. I want to sign up for this.
This is such a neat idea. You can control the clutter and the kids won’t be bored with their toys as it always changes.
This is such a great idea. My kids get tired of their toys so being able to switch them out would be great.
What a cool gift idea !
We recently started with Pley- the turnaround seems okay- about 1 a week for us; and I like that you actually get tracing progress.
This sounds great for a lot of kids. My daughter on the other hand… I have to be a ninja just to get rid of a broken crayon. lol
What a great concept! My son is too old for this now, but it could be a great idea for my niece and nephew. I was wondering as I read what would happen if a Lego piece disappeared (as legos tend to do no matter how hard you try!). I love that you aren’t charged for it. Great customer service there!
My littlest nephew would love this so much! What’s included is really, really nice by the way!
Toy rental?! Where was this when my kids were younger. I would have subscribed to this in a heart beat.
What a fantastic idea! I am going to check into this. My kids would love getting new toys to try.
This sounds like a fun subscription for the kids to play with. My kids get bored fast with toys sometimes so it would be perfect for them to try out new toys with.
They have some great sets at Pley! We’ve tried them out before and my son enjoyed it!
Okay, this is a genius idea! I would love subscriptions for my two children. It would allow them a variety of toys to play with without the constant clutter in our home. Very neat!
This sounds like an awesome subscription for kids! Love the idea!
$240 a year–what kind of toys specifically–big/small; sets; indoor/outdoor; classic; games?
