If you have kids, then you’re going to have toys. The two just go together. And if you’re like me, you probably feel like you should have taken stock in a toy company. Because at least then you’d have some idea where all your money went.
So, since kids are going to want toys, how do you manage your toy budget while keeping those toys fresh and exciting? Here are a few options, my opinion of each as a mom, and one service that will be the complete answer to your problems:
1. Pley: Your one stop answer! With Pley, you can rent toys like you can rent movies. Starting with plans as low as $19.99 a month, members receive unlimited toys delivered one at a time directly to their door. Then, once they’ve finished playing with their toy, they can simply swap it out for a different toy.
Offering access to a large selection of educative toys, including 400+ LEGO sets and popular robotics toys, Pley is always on the hunt for the best toys and their assortment reflects as such. Not only does renting through Pley help save money, an average member saves about $800 a year, but it also helps reduce clutter.
2. Hand-me-downs: Having kids so close in age means one will be just starting to play with toys that the other is now getting tired of. We’ve also received a lot of great toys through family and friends. This has saved us a lot of money and provided many fun-filled afternoons. But, unlike Pley, even those hand-me-down toys still accumulate until you can find someone else to hand them down to.
3. Thrift stores: I love thrift stores and all the unique pieces you can find. And while they’re great for finding really cheap toys, thrift stores are also great for finding toys with missing pieces, or toys from 10 years ago that no kid today would find fun.
I know for us, I wish Pley had been available since my oldest was little. A great service for keeping fun fresh and exciting, it would have saved us a lot of LEGO sets and toys throughout the years, not to mention money, space, and boring afternoons.
