Ben's Bargains Serving Fresh Deals 24/7
Ends 12/31. Groupon has a 2-Month Pleygo Lego Rental Subscription for $10. Kids (or adults) can "rent" an unlimited amount of Lego sets up to 500 pieces, with free shipping both ways; a lot like Netflix for Legos. After the first two months, a subscription costs $25 per month. More info can be found on Pleygo's website. Thanks, Tiffany!
Retail: $50

    It sounds awesome as long as they disinfect the sets. Otherwise it seems like the fastest way to spread the zombie apocalypse.

    Ha--it does say they disinfect the sets before sending them out, otherwise yeah, that would be pretty gross.

    Not just counting the pieces, but making sure you get the right pieces back.

    The groupon page says you only get unlimited access to sets "up to 500 pieces", which is a pretty small set. I think the pictured Death Star set is over 3000 pieces.

    ^^ What a job that must be, being the guy who has to inventory every piece of set after set of legos that people return, all day long. Maybe they just weigh them and trust that all the pieces are the right ones for that set.

    Agreed, how on earth do they work this type of service in terms of pieces? Likewise, there is a lot of surface to disinfect -- I hope the pieces are given a full submersion bath like 3PO was given. Otherwise, this is not a good idea. Perhaps they have some sort of automated scanning system that can count and identify the pieces. Perhaps UV light is also used to disinfect. I like the concept a lot, but there seems to be a lot of risk using it based on what you get, return, and the liability involved with that -- he said / she said -- if there are problems. Likewise, the aspect of health seems enigmatic in terms of how the product is disinfected. I would like to know a lot more as this would be so much fun for adults as well as kids!

    It looks like they have 3 different subscription levels depending on the size of the lego sets that you want. Medium set subscription is $15/month, large is $25, and huge is $39. Dont know the piece counts that define each category.

    It sounds like they have a machine that cleans the pieces, and you are allowed up to 10 "lost" pieces without any charge. You are also able to buy the set if you like it.

    ^ 10 pieces in total over several rentals or 10 per rental?

    LOL.

    I knew they did this with preschool size toys, but I can't see how they make the logistics work with a 500 piece toy.
