Necessity may be the mother of invention, but it’s mothers themselves (and fathers!) who are the inventors of necessities! And if you have Lego-loving kids, then you know that a Box4Blox-1way to store and organize them – a way that encourages kids to keep them picked up, out from underfoot – is pretty much a necessity. Peter and Moira Botherway, parents of four from New Zealand, created the BOX4BLOX Lego storage solution as a way to quickly and easily store – and sort! – Legos. They run their company, Simplastix Innovations LTD, from their home office, but ship their innovative product to countries all over the world (the US, UK, and EU countries) via Amazon.

I got to try out BOX4BLOX with my children’s Legos – what an ingenious product! The way it works is really quite simple, but incredibly effective. The green tray is solid, and goes on the bottom. Each subsequent tray has grids in it – the red tray has a small grid, the blue tray has a medium grid, and the yellow tray has a large grid. All you do is dump all your Legos in, shake the container a bit (or swish the Legos around a bit with your hand, and your Legos will be sorted via the grids, with the smallest Legos falling to the bottom of the container and the larger pieces staying in one of the upper grids. (The same concept as a coin sorter). So not only are all the Legos contained in a single box, but they’re also sorted by size, making it easy for kids to find the right sized piece for their current work-in-progress.

Box4Blox-2

You can see it in action in the following video:

 

The BOX4BLOX was voted the “Best Home Organizing Product of the Year” by the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) and it comes with a 5 year guarantee to replace any broken or damaged pBox4Blox-3arts. It’s made out of safe, high quality ABS plastic (the same plastic that Legos are made out of). When it’s assembled, it makes a 10¼ inch cube that holds approximately 1700 Legos! (Depending, of course, on how many Legos of various sizes you put into it).

Although it’s not a toy, a BOX4BLOX makes a great gift for kids (or for mom & dad!) I have a six-year-old nephew who loves Legos, so for his upcoming birthday I’m going to give him a BOX4BLOX, which is like a gift for my sister as well! When she visited for Christmas, she actually mentioned that they’d been looking for a way to keep my nephew’s Legos cleaned up and organized, and that the BOX4BLOX would be perfect. Since the BOX4BLOX doesn’t come with any blocks, I’m planning on buying a package of Legos and dumping them into the BOX4BLOX before wrapping it up, so he’ll get the Legos AND a way to keep them neat and organized.

My biggest hope is that they expand this product into the medium-sized building block market. The baby-sized blocks that my one-year-old uses aren’t so bad, since they’re large enough that they’re not much of a stepping/vacuuming hazard, but those medium-sized blocks are the devil. My 9-year-old son with autism prefers the medium blocks over the small sized blocks (less frustrating to put together and pull apart, which means fewer meltdowns), but has rejected our organizational efforts so far. I’ve found those blocks everywhere – not just scattered about the living room, but also tossed up into the ceiling tiles so mom has to get a ladder to retrieve them, microwaved so mom has to install a lock on the microwave, and even flushed down the toilet so mom has to snake them out. (A note: Whereas small Lego blocks are typically small enough to go right through and never be seen again, those medium blocks don’t flush all the way down. You have to snake them out to make the toilet functional again. Do you know how many of those blocks will fit in the trap of a standard toilet? Our record so far is nine).

A BOX4BLOX that’s designed with grids for those medium-sized blocks wouldn’t solve all our problems, but I think the sorting process would really appeal to my kiddo’s need for structure and make him more likely to put them away properly rather than, say, flushing them down the toilet.

If you’re tired of cleaning up/stepping on/vacuuming up Legos, you can get your own BOX4BLOX for $39.95 (and free shipping) on the BOX4BLOX website. (Fulfillment is by Amazon).
