We’re on the brink of outgrowing our current storage solution and I was wondering if anyone could give any advice what to do next.
So currently we have an Ikea table (Lack, £5) for the kids to build on. Then two Really Useful Boxes (I think they are 18 ltr) that sit underneath. It’s compact and looks reasonably tidy when they are in bed, as tidy as it ever gets with a 2 and 5 year old!
All the sets we have are still built (a mix of Disney and Friends so far) but that is going to be a problem when we add more sets. I’d love to break them down by part in the hope that the girls might start to build their own creations eventually and we would still have the instructions and pieces should they just want to rebuild the set again.
So the first box under the table is Duplo, which was much loved until the Lego arrived. Now our two year old seems to have dropped it in favour of the much cooler bricks her sister has. So I could cull the Duplo. I don’t think either of them would even notice it was gone.
The second box is all Lego. It has smaller builds, spare bricks (from pick-a-brick), a folder with instructions, unbuilt polybags and a hobby box with compartments for the minifigs and small parts (studs, food, printed pieces etc).
My initial idea was to add a second Ikea table, which would then accommodate two more boxes underneath, plus the box I would clear of Duplo, giving us three more boxes in total. That would give us space for another couple of months so long as we don’t go too crazy. But it is just delaying the inevitable.
