How to Save on LEGO Gifts

I absolutely hate it when Sam doesn’t feel well. Right now he is battling a horrible cold. Sam feels miserable and I can’t make it go away. I’ve been doing all the mom things that I know to help, but healing takes time. Sigh.

Inexpensive Gift Ideas for Kids

I’m trying to distract Sam with quiet activities. One of the things he loves to play is LEGO®. We started him out with the larger DUPLO® blocks when he was a tiny guy. As Sam’s imagination has grown and he’s become more dexterous, we have added sets with the smaller-sized pieces. He has quite a collection already. When I see all of the LEGO sets that are available, I can see why some moms say LEGO takes over their world!

Lego Toys on Pley

Since a boy’s bedroom can only hold so many LEGOs, we’ve become fans of Pley. It’s a subscription service that lets your kids play with LEGO sets for a month and then you trade them back for a new set. Sets that are $100 at the store are available for $9.99 a month on Pley. The subscription includes free shipping to your house and back to their service plus they wash and sanitize each piece before it is sent out to the next customer. There’s also a plan for receiving multiple LEGO sets a month for $19.99. It’s a great way to encourage open-ended play while emphasizing the benefits of sharing and reducing waste.

What is Pley

According to Sam, a Pley gift subscription is like having Christmas multiple times a year. Kids enjoy the excitement of receiving a shipment every month—they don’t get bored and just shelve their LEGO sets with Pley. You get to choose what LEGO set arrives each month. Just log on to the Pley website and scan through their available sets. Their search feature makes it simple to find something specific.

If you are scratching your head over what Christmas gift to give a special guy (or gal), I suggest checking out a subscription to Pley — an imaginative gift for growing imaginations!

Stephanie is in love with a boy named Sam. He has taught her that it's okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots. She hangs out here blogging at Spaceships and Laser Beams and at our printable party shop on Etsy.
