Lego Storage Solved! Check Out This Video.

By gabrielleblair |

Oh my goodness. Is this cheesy or the coolest invention ever? This Lego storage box, called Box4Blox, auto-sorts your Lego pieces! Each level “sifts” different sized pieces, and smaller pieces drop to the level below. I totally want to try one. It looks like it would be so helpful.

At our house, we have two giant bins of Legos. Duplos and other building toys are kept in other containers — these two big bins are strictly Lego. And the kids are constantly dumping them out to sort them and find the smallest pieces. I wonder if the Box4Blox would do the trick? Have you ever seen or tried this?

    Have it.. want mine? fun in theory and it was pretty cool to try it out, but really, not functional on a regular basis. My boys (7 and 8) do not have the patience to look through each layer to find their piece. And if you spread them out separately to view what you’ve got, small pieces that didn’t fall out earlier will then fall on your floor. The layers are slippery to hold on to and not easy for little hands to pick up and put back on correctly. Mine still holds a few legos, but we quickly went back to a set of drawers with clear plastic bins that slide out.

    I had one of these. It’s crap. It gets clogged, the pieces that are *almost* big enough or stuck are constantly falling out when you take out the tray, and it really doesn’t hold THAT much stuff. Maybe for a third of the price, but I got one for $5 at a yard sale and still sent it to Goodwill 3 months later.

    I once bought a huge lot of vintage buttons and had imagined designing something like that to sort them. I think it would have worked well for buttons since they’re mostly round and smooth.

    We keep Legos in a wide, shallow plastic box and it actually works pretty well. The kids do have to dig a bit for the smallest parts, but at least they have plenty of elbow room while digging.

    No! No! Say it isn’t so! It was like a dream, a beautiful dream. I say this as someone trying hard not to think about the 300 Lego pieces strewn across the living room.

    As a gift to my son last year I gave him a coupon for organized Legos. At the time he thought it was lame, but after I spent hours and hours sorting each piece into its own compartment in crafting boxes (larger pieces in drawers), and then he actually tried to build something, he was in heaven. No more sorting through giant lego boxes when he built stuff. The things he’s built in the last year are pretty amazing. Every so often we have to resort, but it doesn’t take as long as it did the first time, and he gets much better use out of his lego collection. I wouldn’t recommend that if your child is likely to dump the pieces all back out again, but it’s a system that has worked for us.

  7. Kcd says:

    We had this….it was not the miracle of Lego storage I thought it’d be. The biggest prob is that the individual trays cannot be set out on a floor or table…the bottoms are open so pieces fall out. Also, it’s too small to accomodate our thousands of Legos. Still waiting for a better storage solution. In the meantime we will keep using our plastic tower cart of drawers.

  8. Anne says:

    We want the machine that sorts by color….a girl (and four boys) can dream.

  9. Stephanie Precourt says:

    I think it sounds like a great idea however the time and sorting of the Legos is all part of the process for my boys. No need to make them even lazier when playing.

    I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours This Storage Box Auto-Sorts Your Legos! | Family Style. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
