As an interactive toy LEGO bricks are, just about, the best thing ever designed. But when it comes to storage and organisation they can be an absolute nightmare!
Storage solutions for all those tiny pieces are many and varied but can be split into two categories. Those adapted to suit, such as plastic drawers, and those which are purpose designed, such as the examples below.
BOX4BLOX Toy Brick Storage & Sorter – a clever storage system that sorts all different sizes of brick with a quick shake. The smallest bricks work there way to the bottom and the largest bricks stay on top. (available from amazon.co.uk)
Lego Sort and Store – the same head design but has the benefit of 3 sections with a grid in the base. So you can just throw in all your loose bricks, give it a shake and they’ll be sorted into small, medium and large sizes. * These are quite difficult to get hold of now so expect to pay a premium.
LEADSTAR Large Toy Storage Bag – a simple but effective solution, this large play mat has a drawstring closure so when they have finished playing you just pull it closed to make a carry bag. Available in 3 colours. 150 cm diameter. (available from amazon.co.uk)
Room 2 Build Kids Toy Storage Unit – a 3-tier unit with 2 shelves and a large storage drawer. The flat surfaces are specially designed so they can build small Lego models on them. W55 × D30 × H59 cm. (available from amazon.co.uk)
