Mother's Big Helper

DSC04520.JPG

There is no sound that strikes doom in a mother's heart like the sound of a thousand Legos being dumped out on the floor in the next room.

And we have a thousand of them. Easily.

That is why I think the people who invented Box4Blox* deserve the Nobel peace prize. It's a series of stacking bins that sort and store Lego bricks by size. GENIUS. The website says it can store around 1,500 bricks. We sort them and dump each tray into a corresponding color-coded plastic drawer. It's absolutely incredible.

And so much cheaper than Valium.


*No affiliation. No kickback. No kidding. This rocks.

Funny. My son was waltzing into my office to show me his latest Lego creation when I caught your tweet. I think I'll pick up a Box4Blox. Thanks!

I just showed this to my logical middle-boy and he liked it! I love the idea. Brilliant.

The folks at Lego are so kicking themselves right now for not thinking of that.

Freakin' brilliant.
