'Pley' is a toy rental company that's made a name for itself as "Netflix for toys." While this model provides Pley with the chance to keep a fresh rotation of products, including officially licensed toys like LEGO and Knex, the company is looking further ahead to the future with its newest service.

In addition to being able to rent finished toys from Pley, kids will now have access to rentable 3D printers and a "streaming service" to provide all of the tools needed for a 3D-printed toy creation. If a family decides to keep a printer after is has been delivered, it can be purchased and become a permanent fixture of the home.

To further expand Pley's rentable toy database, kids will be able to upload their creations to Pleyworld. After going through a voting system, the best toys will be shared through Pley so that others can enjoy the unique creations.
