Cure Summer Boredom with PLEY.com Lego Rental (+ a Lego Giveaway)

Rent Lego sets for more bang for your buck!

Pay Less, Play More!  Is Pley moto. Their mission is a socially-responsible company that changes the way families consume educational toys. Leveraging collaborative consumption, we aim to raise a more creative and skillful generation that follows the principles of open-ended play while emphasizing the benefits of sharing, reducing waste and giving back to the community.

Pley-6

We think it’s just plain fun and exciting. My daughter had the chance to fill her queue with all kinds of Lego sets, some she would have never picked at the store to buy, and they just keep arriving in the mail, come on admit it EVERYONE LOVES GETTING MAIL!!!! Ensuring a summer of creative play and new toys all break long – without breaking the bank.

How does it work? Sign up at Pley , your first set is free to try it out. Load up the queue with all sorts of sets from Lego Friends, Star Wars, Batman and more. The first box will arrive in the mail in about 5 days. Then you play. When you are done, box it up and send it back. Another set from your queue will be on its way.

Pley-5

That all seems really awesome, right! But you want to know how it works in the real word. We have a non-organized, 1 kid, 3 dog house. My fear was lost pieces. BUT Pley has you covered. They understand that some pieces will fall into the unknown abyss that is my heating / cooling ducts never to be seen again. You will not be charged for normal play loss and there is a page on the website to report an incomplete set if one should arrive at your house. It’s all on your time, you can keep one set as long as you like. We turned our first set over fairly quickly. It only took 4 days from the drop off at the post office to a new set sitting on our porch. The second set has been around the house here for a couple of weeks. No problem!

I suggest putting all other brick sets away. We have a special tray that we use to build the Pley set. Other than that it’s been super fun.

Pley-3

Our first set was a Princess set. It was the perfect sized set for my daughter to build it on her own. She loved the excitement of opening the box to reveal which set it was, dumping out the pieces and jump into building. I thought she might be upset when it was time to box it up and send it back, but the excitement of which set will be next made it just as fun to take the set apart and ship it back.

Mother's Day Giveaway

Because it is never TOO early to start celebrating the mother of all holidays (pun intended), I have teamed up with a bunch of my favorite bloggers to bring you a very special mother's day giveaway!

When I am not blogging away over at Creative Geekery, I am a graphic designer and one of my favorite things to do is design tee shirts. A few years back I came up with the idea of creating personalized tees for moms, grammies, great-grammies, aunties and great-aunties that incorporates the names of all of the special kiddos in their lives! We will be giving away ONE personalized mom's day tee with whatever nickname you choose (mom, mommy, mama, yaya, grammie, auntie, ANYTHING!) and the names of all of the kids, nieces, nephews, grand and great-grand babies! Don't worry if there are a lot of names. I can get creative!

The tee shirts are a relaxed fit standard weight t-shirt for women from Gildan, 100% pre-shrunk cotton (50%cotton/50%polyester for deep heather color). They come in NINE colors and 5 sizes (S-XXL) and you can choose from 14 ink colors including metallic silver and gold (fancy!). We will work out those dets later! Time for the contest! a Rafflecopter giveaway
