    I have no children or grandchildren, but just happened to be browsing around in the ibles and came across this idea. All I can say is WOW! It sure deserves that award, and I imagine that a kid would actually enjoy putting his/her toys away if the containers were like these.

    Hey, this is pretty cool!

    Do you have any photos of the process of transforming the drums? That would be great to see.
