The Perfect Storage Solution for Tons of Legos
Our son has been into Legos for a little over a year now, and as we increase the quantities of Legos around our house, we have tried several different storage options that have all failed - until we got the Lego Workstation from Santa. :)
With six "project cases" included, we additionally got four of the clear sorting trays to fit inside four of the cases. The sorting trays allow you to sort the different pieces by colors, shapes, however you like to keep pieces together and make them easy to find. As the sorting trays don't take up the entire height of the individual case, you can keep bigger Lego blocks or pieces that you've started putting together on top of the tray and can still close the case. We kept two of the cases "empty" (without the sorting trays) to fit large pieces, built pieces, etc.
The fact that each project case snaps closed is great! Since the sorting trays fit perfectly lengthwise and widthwise, everything stays where you left it when you snap the case closed and slide it into the workstation. The latches are just right - easy for our five year old to open, but too difficult for our one year old to get into!
Having six individual cases that can be completely removed from the workstation is wonderful as well, allowing you to take a case with you if you want to go somewhere (even just to another room) and take a few Legos with you.

Good idea, but...
Love the idea to be able to have the kids' legos organized. Problem (big problem) is the sorting trays do not keep the legos sorted. What 5 year old is going to keep the colored tray flat? Once the tray is tilted all the sorting that was done is no undone. Kind of defeats the purpose.

I had bought several of these but the container store has the best price by far.

Lego workstation to the rescue
I must say that after stepping on legos every day and seeing them all around the house, this product is a god sent. The colored drawers are great as a small child can put the colored legos in each drawer. Space saver to say the least. We had buckets of legos hanging around and our sons room is very small so this product has helped to give him some more working space. I may want to add drawers to this if I can, our son is 7 and has had every lego product we could find for him. He likes the work station too because he can work on the top of it and not on the floor or carpets. Great product!!!!!!
