I have one of these http://www.overstock.com/Crafts-Sewi...6/product.html That I bought at Michaels before Christmas (it was one of Tharen's Christmas gifts). It works great for Lego storage as I can divide things up between the drawers by type. Lego makes lots of different storage options or if you want to store something other than just Legos these work well

I have one in rainbow colors and the boys store their random little men in them in the playroom. They have another in the bedroom and use it like a nightstand to hold CD's, bracelets ect. If you don't have a ton of Legos or want to store Legos and something else it would work well. Another option is open bins on a shelf, I do this with things like Playmobil.

DS has one large tub (think storage tub) that holds his Legos. He then has a small tub of K'Nex. That is their main living spot. I got him 4-5 small tubs that he can put pieces in that he's working on. That was our big problem -- he'd sort through and have several projects on the go, so piles of Legos everywhere. His small tubs have lids, so he can put the pieces in them and then stack them out of the way. We just got the tubs at Wal-Mart, so nothing fancy.

We have tried a couple other ways over the years, and this works best. We also tried a small drawer organizer for special pieces, and we've tried different bins to sort by color or piece type. He found those to be too much work to sort and said it's easier for him to just dig around. If you wanted to look into either of those ideas, they were bins from the hardware/garage section.

I want to get my ds one of these for his Legos. Perfect, since he likes to play with them in different rooms, or the driveway with neighbor kids.

We have the 9 cube organizers and the legos are in a fabric bin.

For Christmas I bought a total of 1400 tiny Legos for my boys. Dollar Tree sells several different sized containers with lids that have worked perfectly.

cuteness overload on that table. I am thinking I see one of these in DS's future.

it is a beautiful table, very sturdy and well made so well worth the price. :wub:

I would say their age range for the table can be a lot higher. My 9 and 10 year old use it. My only other advice would be if you get the dark stained one open the box outdoors (in a garage?) and leave it open with the pieces pulled out for a couple days. When mine arrived it was newly stained and stunk. :(
