It's Back to School Time!

It's back to school time! I can't believe I've seen kids already IN school! We are down to our last 3 weeks of summer, so we've been doing a little shopping.

Review: Pley Lego Rentals

Do your kids love legos? And do they love getting mail? Here's my review of Pley lego rentals.(Disclaimer: This is NOT a paid review. I'm just a mom who tried Pley with her kids & wanted to pass along my experience.)

Before our Summer Break began, we started looking around the internet for summer fun ideas. We started adding to our Memorable Summers list on Pinterest and came across Pley

Pley is a monthly subscription box that is delivered right to you. And let me tell you--it's FAST! I couldn't believe just how quickly we got a new set after returning the one we were finished with. (We mailed ours on a Monday and received a new one on a Thursday and we're on opposite ends of the country!)

They have 100s of Lego sets to choose from and offer 3 subscription options from $15 - $40 per month. The best news? Your first month is free! You can also refer your friends and a $10 credit will be applied to your account (once your referrals become paying members)We started out with their middle option and were able to choose from some pretty large sets and then later downgraded to their cheapest ($15/month) option and are still pleased with the wide selection. My kids are 9 and 6 and the selection was great. We saw a lot of duplo options for the younger crowd, too.

Here are our adorable (and blurry) pictures of some of the Lego projects we've done with sets from Pley.

The Pley website is set up so nicely! It's super organized and user friendly. We were able to set up a "pleylist" of the sets we'd like to borrow. We can check and see what's coming next and move a different set up to the top of the list.

Pley sets have been such an awesome thing for us to have around this summer on the crazy hot days or on the afternoons we needed some down time. I know we'll love having new Lego sets come straight to our door during the colder months of winter!
