My son has recently developed an interest/obsession with Lego. I pulled out my old Lego collection and instructions, and as we browse through them he says "Lets make a fire truck daddy!" We proceed to sift through the pile for the parts.... 2 hours later I might have all the parts needed to build his fire truck.
After a few of these situations I decided something needed to be done to make our Lego sessions as productive as possible. A few days of thought later I came up with this design.
- Adequate parts storage.
- Organized parts storage.
- Storage tubs to hold current projects and double as somewhere to throw Lego for fast pack up.
- Whole setup folds away into a neat format.
- Big enough to last years of my son's growth.
