I don’t know about you but we are a family that does Lego. At least, we have been for the last twelve months or so when my daughter started taking an interest in the smaller blocks rather than her Duplo sets. She particularly likes the Lego Friends franchise. We started building our Lego collection with the little packets you can get with the animal homes which then moved on to bigger boxes as the year has gone past. Since then we’ve accumulated a fair bit and it was getting everywhere. We had about three boxes for the stuff and a draw full of the bigger pieces that didn’t quite fit as well as a few of my daughters creations that she’s made by herself and didn’t want to take apart.
Thanks to the team at Blokpod we have a solution which is an amazing, innovative and creative storage compartment designed to store Lego. We received our Blokpod in exchange for an honest review of it’s use for our Lego storage needs and I can also inform you of a discount available if you intend to purchase your own Blokpod, details of which are at the bottom of this post.
Blokpod is available on Amazon and currently retails for £44.99. It’s a storage device with four plastic compartments which are fitted together with different sized grid trays in between each compartment. You don’t even need to spend time seperating the Lego pieces into each compartment which we found very handy as we had so many boxes of it. You simply place the Lego in the top and shake until the Lego has fallen through. The smallest pieces will be at the very bottom and the largest at the top. I really think this is a clever design and I love that you just shake it to sort it rather than having to sort it yourself. It’s time saving and it looks great. I love the circular design and even though it’s quite tall you can see that you can fit in quite a lot of Lego in each compartment.
My daughter was really impressed with the Blokpod exclaiming how big it is. She also loved giving it a good shake. The lid fits on very well and is quite tight so it’s not something she can open up on her own (hurrah!) and it doesn’t really look out of place in her bedroom fitting nicely at the end of her bed.
Comes already put together
Clear plastic design
Can be used for other building type toys
Can hold around 2,000 blocks
It can’t really be put under the bed like the boxes but it’s not too large and doesn’t take up much space
