Is this a familiar sight in your home?
What you see scattered across my living room floor is a huge collection of 20+ years old space themed LEGOS that Tim’s mother so lovingly stored away in her attic until it was time to pass them on to her grandchildren.
Tim looks at this pile and sees countless memories from his own childhood, as well as memories to come from playing with these with his girls. I see hundreds of choking hazards. And this. I see lots and lots of this:
The LEGOS actually came to us in a nice box, but the only way to play with them every time is to dump them all out on the floor. To which I say, “No thanks!” But once Layah gets old enough to know not to eat the LEGO pieces, I really do want the kids to be able to play with them. So a better solution was needed.
And I found one! Want to see what that giant pile of LEGOS looks like now? Check out Box4Blox!
That’s right. Every. single. LEGO. all nice and neat in this 10 1/4 inch box. And this isn’t just any old box. Oh no! The inside looks like this:
The tiers of the box have graded filters. So when it is time to put your LEGOS away, at first leave out the very largest pieces and then just start piling in the LEGOS, given them a gentle shake every so often so that the pieces fall through to their appropriate level. This makes putting away the LEGOS actually fun! But what I love even more is what it looks like when it is time to get them back out!
All the LEGOS are sorted so that it is so much easier to find the pieces you are looking for. The tiniest pieces are in the bottom green tier. Medium-small pieces are just above in red, large-medium pieces are above that in blue, and the largest pieces can be found in the top yellow tier. No need to dump everything out. Just lay out your trays!
It’s a beautiful thing, isn’t it???
Darah’s grandparents were so kind to hang on to Tim’s childhood treasures, and now we have a way to store and organize them that really makes sense. I think this a perfect gift option, especially for grandparents to purchase because it strikes this great balance between being very practical (and something the parents will appreciate) and very fun! This product is also made in the U.S.A. which is a really nice bonus!
When Darah gets a little bit older, I’ll be purchasing another Box4Blox set, as we have even more LEGOS waiting upstairs in the attic!
If you have LEGOS in your home, and you are starting to run out of ideas for how to store them in an effective way, then you are definitely going to want a Box4Blox. They are currently available at Amazon for under $45. Put it on your wishlist right now. Or better yet, just put it in your online cart!
