SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- To keep up with the holiday demand, Pley - the leading online toy rental service- has tested a faster delivery method to get toys delivered to its members within an hour.

Pley members in San Francisco have started receiving their toys using UberRush, an on-demand delivery service. Toys are now delivered more quickly eliminating shipping delays caused by UPS or FEDEX that are common during the holiday period.  

Pley's CEO, Ranan Lachman, explains: "With parents eager to give their children presents to play with over Chanukah and Christmas, the decision to try a faster delivery option to better the customer experience was a no brainer. We've seen a huge influx in members requesting that their first toy be delivered just-in-time for the holidays. As a way to improve their experience, we have started testing delivering our toys using UberRUSH. We've already received great feedback from satisfied customers who were amazed by the speedy delivery.  Following the success of the trial, we look to roll out the service across major cities in 2016."

One of Pley's members tweeted: "@MyPley just sent me a speedy set with #uberrush. How cool is that!"

Another also tweeted: "Got my #StarWars LEGO set delivered to my office with #uberrush. So cool! Thanks @MyPley"

Pley offers unlimited toy rental for a low monthly cost of $19.99. Children can select from 400 different toys including:  LEGO, K'nex and other educational toys including this Christmas favorites: the BB-8 Star Wars droid and the Dash & Dot robot. Toys are cleaned and sanitized and delivered straight to members' door.

Getting toys on-demand would help take the pressure off families on the days when school is off and also on those unforeseen days like rainy weekends and snow days, in case of cancelled playdates or even last-minute playdates. Families would be able to keep the kids occupied and entertained through Pley's convenient service. In addition, it would save the trip to the toy store for a last-minute purchase before a birthday party. 

Renting toys is the smart choice for smart families who want to save on toys and reduce clutter. The ability to rent unlimited toys combined with convenient delivery solves many hassles for parents.
