We joined Pleygo. It's a Lego borrowing system through the mail. Guy got his first set and we mailed it back, awaiting set #2. We are picking out Creator sets since you get to build 3 things with the one set.
Guy's three creations.
So far so good. The shipping isn't super fast and it is $15/month. I read negative reviews that for that amount you could buy a lego set every other month. That is true but after you build a lego set, isn't the fun kind of over? You are just left with a bunch of specialized oddball pieces. And you usually end up losing a crucial piece and someone takes a bite out of the instructions. I'm not against lego set ownership. In fact, Guy will be getting one for Christmas. But why own what you can borrow?
Nels was a little jealous that he wasn't allowed to touch the Pleygo legos. He made his own darn airplane out of the normal shaped legos. He was quite a proud peacock.
