There Is Now A Netflix For Legos

Yes, if renting Lego sets is something you'd like to do, then you'd best bookmark immediately. The site allows you to rent your choice of Lego sets on a monthly basis, and then return them. Yes, really.

It sounds crazy, but the joy of playing with Legos is generally the building, not the finished product. I can see a lot of parents going for this. Here's the details:

• There are three levels of membership, depending on whether you want to rent small, medium or large Lego kits. Small is $15 per month, medium is $25, large is $39.

• The shipping is free both ways.

• You can rent as many sets as you want, but only one a time.

• The sets are sanitized in-between uses, so you don't have to worry about someone else's kid wiping his bubonic plague-snot over the pieces.

• If you lose a piece, it's cool.

• If you get attached to the set (no pun), you can purchase it from Pley.

• If you're still on the fence, you can sign up for a free trial and see what you think.

You know, given how expensive some of these sets run, this is actually a pretty good deal. The more I think about it, the less crazy it seems. Hmm...
