My two girls really got into LEGOs a few years ago. Now, our house is littered with LEGOs.. and there are more to come! Between Christmas and birthdays, the kids usually receive more sets. I have tried several ways of containing the LEGO pieces, or sorting and organizing them, but the reality is that they all get dumped into one big bin.
That is, when they aren’t on the floor and Mommy steps on a LEGO! Or, I suck up a LEGO in the vacuum – and I actually dig through the vacuum bag to find it. As much as the kids are responsible for their toys, I am not throwing away LEGOs!
Box4Blox has been the solution to many of our LEGO problems – problems, which include messes, and that weare frustrated when the kid’s can’t find the pieces they want. This system works as a sorter and organizer, stacking with a set of different size sorting trays. Each tray holds a different size LEGO, from large (at the top yellow tray) all the way down to the bottom green tray, which catches the smallest pieces.
The kids simply sort their LEGOs by dumping them in the top tray, and shaking (or gently moving their hand through the tray) until the LEGOs self-sort through the layers. The trays come apart for when you are ready to play.
Before Box4Blox, we spent a lot of time looking for pieces, especially the little pieces. When we used to throw every piece in one big bin, the little pieces would sink to the bottom and it would take forever to dig them out. You know, the little “buttons” that are just a few millimeters long or the tops of flowers? Plus, the kids would complain that the sound of rummaging through LEGOs actually got annoying. Now it is much easier to find those tiny pieces.
The top part of the system catches the large pieces, and we also put some pieces that are partly assembled. I would love to even have another layer that doesn’t have a sorting tray and is just basically like a box on top for small assembled projects. For now those partially assembled bits fit in the top, but I can see us needing more space in the future!
The kids love this system because it makes everything easier. Box4Blox can hold up to about 1800 pieces, but it makes playing a lot simpler, as the kids can see everything spread out and grab what they need.
The best part about the Box4Blox is that at the end of the day, the kids actually put their LEGOs away! I don’t know what it is, but the kids follow through with stacking the trays back together and picking up their LEGOs off the floor and putting them into the Box4Blox.
I really love this product. We have had a variety of boxes to store LEGOs, but this is the perfect LEGO storage accessory!
