Why I Started Pleygo? As a mother, I always try to reduce screen time for my son, which is why I love LEGO® sets. Not only do LEGO sets enhance my son’s cognitive development and motor skills, they allow us to bond as a family.
Unfortunately, over the years the sets became more complex and the price skyrocketed. When my husband told me once how much we spent on LEGO sets, I was shocked. That’s when I thought of the concept of renting LEGO sets, it would save money and declutter the house. And that’s when Pleygo was born!
Through Pleygo, the joy is shared among many kids, helping them grow as individuals while we, as a company, contribute to the community by donating toys to less-fortunate children.

Educational – We believe that playing with LEGO bricks helps children develop their imagination, creativity and knowledge about how the laws of physics help construct objects.
Eco- Friendly – We recycle toys and reduce carbon signature and waste that a new LEGO set generates when created. We utilize eco-friendly materials to clean and sanitize the LEGO pieces.
Community Oriented – We donate 10% of our proceeds to "Save our Children" a non-profit organization that promotes children creativity through play. We also donate LEGO bricks and sets to charities such as the "World Wide Orphans" that distribute them to unprivileged children.
