Brightly colored Lego bricks cover the living room floor. The half-completed masterpieces have been left behind as the kids start playing with another toy. Sound familiar? It seems that with all the toy storage ideas you will find, parents are always looking for the best way to store those Lego blocks. (This is a sponsored post for Pley. All opinions are 100% my own.)
I’ve been there.
It all started with a simple plastic drawer storage unit.
The three inch deep top drawers were perfect for the smaller sets, like Lego cars and Mixels. The two deep drawers at the bottom held the larger creations. All the Legos had a home, and it was awesome.
And then our Lego collection grew.
The drawers got more and more crowded. The Lego Friends tree house my daughter spent days building was too tall to fit in the drawer and had to go on top of the stand. Christmas came and the Frozen castle (so cool, by the way) wouldn’t fit. And I was tired of my son’s huge helicopter set always getting broken and having to help him fix it.
We had outgrown our Lego storage.
After a bit of scratching our heads to think of a new solution, we came up with this idea.
My son agreed that he wasn’t really using the train table anymore, so we moved it out to the living room and turned it into a Lego table. Under the bed storage units hold extra pieces and sets not being played with. The top is perfect for the really big sets. And the kids love being able to keep their Legos set up, ready to play.
There is just one problem I can foresee. My kids are just 6 and 8. We have many more years of Legos ahead of us. I know we will outgrow this solution, too, if we’re not careful.
That’s where the Pley company comes in to play. (Yes, that pun was intended.) You can control that Lego clutter with the help of Pley.
The Pley company offers access to over 400 different Lego sets. As a bonus, they even have hard to find sets and sets that have been retired.
How does that help reduce the Lego clutter? The Pley packages get delivered to your door and when the kids are done playing, they can return them for a new toy. This will greatly reduce the amount of storage space needed to house all those Lego sets, some of which don’t get played with once they have been put together.
Besides having access to a variety of toys, kids also learn the concepts of sharing and reducing waste for the environment. Bonus!
Those brightly colored bricks will be in the living room for a long time. And parents will continue to search for the perfect Lego storage solution. But with the Pley company, you don’t have to worry about outgrowing that storage solution faster than your kids outgrow their clothes.
