Today – The best way to store Lego
The best way to store Lego
I am so excited to show you this Momo toy bag, it is, without doubt, the best way to store Lego in my opinion.
A speedy Lego storage solution
Let me show you how it works ( if your kids love Lego and you can appreciate how long it can take to pick those bits of Lego up you cannot fail to love this.) It truly is the best way to store Lego and the least time-consuming. They can even sort and play with it in the bag as they spread the bag out rather than having to tip everything on to the floor..which is a sure fire way for pieces to get lost. I have found so many pieces under sofas and chairs in my time, this bag is a great way to contain the Lego whilst it is being sorted out.
All you do is open the bag and as you can see in the photo above it pulls wide and flat so the lego is visible and easy to access. When your child is done you simple pull the string to gather it all up. It is a playmat and storage in one very simple solution. How clever is that!
More play potential
Kids can see exactly what they have rather than rummaging through a huge box and to gather it all up you simply pull the strings. Yay! Kids are much more likely to play with toys that are clearly visible and accessible. Our current storage situation involves boxes of lego ( plastic tubs with lids) being placed high on top of the bookcase. My kids cannot reach these down themselves and when they do they find it really difficult to see what is in them. This is not at all conducive to their play.
This storage bag is really a thing of beauty in its simplicity and ability to solve an annoying and a persistent problem.. I have stepped on just SO many Lego pieces in my time and whilst this is something I know a lot of parents joke about it isn’t really funny when you doit. It is annoying and irritating and downright painful to be stepping on lego!. This would work for Duplo and train tracks and all sorts really. Such a great idea it a superb way to store Lego.
A sociable way to play
One of the most lovely things about this Lego storage is the way it opens up to let lots of kids gather round to play. Although in many ways lego can be a solitary play experience ist si a shared love and a play mat like his makes building together just so much easier.
Colour and variety in your Lego storage
The bags come in a myriad of colours and various sizes and can be bought from Momo Including postage the cost is less than 30 Euro which I think is worth every penny! I haven’t stepped on a piece of Lego in ages! Thank goodness for that!
Smaller versions are available too for holidays or trips to see family…what a great concept.
Health and safety issues
To be sure that you have no concerns about the ties in the bag you just need to be aware as you would with any cords.
Obviously for health and safety reasons you need to tie the pully strings up so they aren’t dangling long and loose once you have gathered the Lego back up
More Lego storage ideas
Momo sells other great toy storage too and we particularly loved the Spacy bag in which, rather unbelievably, we managed to fit all my daughter’s cuddly toys into which just made her room look SO much more organised. I was amazed at how much we fitted in! She can also use it as a pouffe and sit on it!
These also come in a host of lovely colours and cost under 30 euro.
There you go annoying storage all sorted you are now the proud owner of some important parenting info.

More fun facts ….

- Lego is a not just those little bricks your kids love it is WAY more than that. You can get film, games, competitions and six themed amusement park – we have even stayed at the absolutely amazing Lego hotel!
- Lego friends was not just a matter of making pink and lilac tiles and trying to interest girls in Lego that way. SO much research went into Lego friends to make it the success it was. The research found that girls wanted their characters to have real faces ( not like the traditional yellow Lego men) they wanted their characters to have names and identities. They also wanted the setting for their play to be real and sociable ( classrooms, cafes amusement parks etc) rather than space shops and lost worlds. Girls wanted far more than pastel colours!
