LEGOs you can let go
Do you shudder a little when you buy your LEGO-loving kid yet-another set? Sure, they’re absolutely worth the cost, but they (and the cost) pile up fast. Solution: Rent LEGOs!

It’s OK if you lose a few pieces, but you have to keep them separate from other LEGOs to avoid confusion.
