Everything now truly is awesome: You can rent Legos.

Many of us enjoy the ever-evolving plastic bricks but simply can’t keep paying the exorbitant costs for their sets (the firehouse set, for example, retails for $115). Thankfully, a site called snapped into action and came up with what is basically a “Netflix for Lego.”

Starting at a mere $15 a month, you can rent as many Lego sets as your heart desires. Build them, play with them, destroy them, accidentally step on the pieces in your bare feet in the middle of the night. Medium-sized sets will run you $25 a month, while large sets will cost $39 a month. You can keep the sets as long as you like.

Even if you lose a couple pieces to a set, you aren’t penalized—as long as you keep it under 15.

Your monthly subscription also includes a few “freebies” each time you receive a set, as well as guaranteed free shipping each way. will even sell you sets that you decide you want to keep at a discounted rate.

Just, whatever you do, avoid the Kragle.
