MORRISTOWN, NJ - What do you do after the LEGO creations your children have built lose their appeal and are left to clutter your playroom floor?
The answer is simple.
Don't buy new LEGO sets, rent them from BrickPiggy.
BrickPiggy is a new LEGO rental service that has solved the problem of over-spending on sets that children grow out of and forget. Co-owners and friends, Gretchen Cotnoir and Julia Giordano wanted to continue encouraging their children to build and be creative, but were tired of the clutter, and the amount of money spent on new LEGO sets and so they came up with the idea of LEGO rentals. When deciding on a name for their company, Cotnoir and Giordano wanted to find an animal that would resonate with people. The women also wanted to incorporate their belief that building is a critical component in a child's development.
"We thought of the 3 Little Pigs and how the 3rd Little Pig liked to build with bricks, so we named the company BrickPiggy," said Cotnoir.
Based on more building and less clutter, BrickPiggy allows subscribers to choose various service options to rent LEGO sets for their child tailored to their building level skills and interests. Parents are able to choose as many themes as their child is interested in and set their own delivery frequency. A set will arrive on a specified timetable. Kids can build it for up to 30 days, then take it apart and send it back. If they love it, purchase it from BrickPiggy.
With over 18 years of experience in the corporate world, both Cotnoir and Giordano felt prepared for the next step in their careers.
"I have always wanted to start my own business", said Giordano. "I just needed to find something I'm passionate about."
The idea is spreading all over social media. In less than a week in business, the company has orders coming in from all over the country.
"Our idea seems to be resonating with a lot of people", reflected Cotnoir. "Although we aren't an international company, we have had web traffic from as far as Malaysia."
Every order is shipped to the home and the kids get a surprise in the mail.
"Everyone loves getting something in the mail", said Giordano.
