|Looks great, but it's now in hundreds of pieces|
Every set has been built, taken to pieces, rebuilt slightly differently, and then bunged unsorted into an old sweet tin. And modern bricks are no longer square or roof-shaped (like they were when I was 8!); this hodgepodge contains special shaped pieces solely for building Star Wars fighters. We currently have nine tins of unsorted Lego. To a freaky organised person such as myself, this situation must be remedied, AT ONCE!
|Actually, that's 12 tins! Here, we are mid-sorting: AGAIN!|
I saw on Twitter last week that someone had blogged a "solution for Lego storage". But when I saw the solution I was sorely disappointed. No way would it hold all our Lego! Although I liked the compartment idea.
What I need is a solution that keeps big bricks, roof pieces, wheels, people etc separate, and all in one place. I don't want dozens of Celebrations tins all over the place.
My husband thought these Ikea Trofast units might be useful, but they don't have compartments inside. (We have these units in similar combinations for other toys, and they are great.)

Do you have a solution for storing Lego or other toys? I would love suggestions, practical and unusual!
