We are all familiar with it. Most of us grew up with it, but sometimes kids and parents just need to be reminded of the beauty and benefits of toys, like Lego.
Lego is the perfect way to advance kids’ skills through imaginative play. Whilst gaining invaluable practice with fine motor skills and dexterity, playing with Lego also improves creativity, colour and shape recognition, problem solving and mathematical thinking. It helps build self-esteem, encourages communication skills and team work.
Positives aside however, parents unfortunately also have complaints about Lego. Apart from being an organisational challenge, the bricks get lost everywhere. They’re a choking hazard for young children plus it’s nearly impossible to be a parent and not experience the agony of stepping on one or more Lego bricks at some point. It’s such a commonly experienced phenomenon, that the internet is filled with memes about it.
Pros and cons aside, we think we’ve found the perfect Lego storage idea to help minimise frustrations by creating an inviting, destination space for play, whilst ensuring everything is still easily accessible and organised.
Kids are more likely to clean up if they don’t have to make a huge effort. When they’re done playing on this table, they can just tuck the bricks into the bins underneath. The amazing Building Bricks Play N Store Table by KidKraft features 3 collapsible bins that slide out for easy building brick storage.
The entire table top opens to reveal additional storage space. The pinch-free design means little fingers are kept safe when opening and closing the table and the 360 degree design allows multiple kids to play at once.
Compatible with Lego®, Duplo® and other popular building brick brands. Measures 90cmL x 48cmW x 39cmH. Exclusive to Nest in South Africa.
