This week we have been debating; yes, debating; the conundrum that is 'how to store our increasing collection of Lego sets.'
I came to the conclusion; after working out that if I was to invest the £39.99 it would cost for a Lego Sort and Store head, which look amazing but seem horrifically over priced for what is essentially moulded plastic; that I would need to actually buy at least 3 storage heads. One for Princess Peppa's 'Friends' range, one for Little Miss George's Marvel Hero and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle ranges and three for my shop. Yes three. Apparently they only store 1000 pieces and if I ever do demolish the shop (which is unlikely) it had 2,182 pieces.
It seems a hugely extravagant solution to a basic storage problem.
So what about the Lego storage heads that just store, and don't sort?
For my money the space for storage is just too big. How do you rummage through and find the small pieces in such a deep container?
