If you have a child who loves Legos, I’d highly recommend picking up a couple of these Iris storage cases. They are a great way to help keep Lego collections under control.
Each case comes with a 10×10 base plate that your child can use as a basis for his Lego creations. The base plates are some of my son’s favorite Lego pieces, so the fact that this tote included a base plate was a major selling point for me. The base plates are so expensive and hard to find on their own that buying this tote seemed like a more economical choice.
The case closes tightly and the handle makes it easy for my son to transport his Legos from room to room. He loves the Ninjago characters, so the graphic on the front of the case was a bonus as well. However, if your child would prefer a different design, Iris actually makes several versions of this case. There are even pink and purple Lego Friends cases for young girls.
Although the case holds a fair amount of Legos, it’s only part of our toy storage system. We use the Iris case for projects “in progress” and have a large divided trunk filled with the rest of the Legos. Mini figure pieces are kept separate because of their small size.
We also have a Box4Blox sorter that is great for sorting pieces by size if my son is planning to build something specific and needs help locating a certain size of brick.
If your child plays with Legos, how do you keep his or her collection organized?
